At Shainfeld Law, our California lemon law attorney knows Mercedes Benz is an increasingly popular brand that is growing in sales thanks to manufacturing more affordable vehicles alongside their high-end cars and SUVs. Mercedes-Benz USA reported 350,949 vehicles sold last year, including 286,764 passenger vehicles and 64,185 vans.

Mercedes-Benz came in fourth on the list of most vehicle recalls with 27 car recalls — impacting 395,504 vehicles, which is 10% of the total. Most of the recalls were due to faulty electrical systems, wiring, and issues with the fuel pump.

Another notable recall involved more than 40,000 vehicles because they may not have been equipped with an inspection gauge to measure the wear on brake pads, affecting many models manufactured from 2019 to 2021.

Even when Mercedes Benz vehicles exhibit defects that do not rise to the level of vehicle recalls, they can still impact their use, safety, or value. According to the California Lemon Law, if your vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s warranty and cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts, you may be entitled to a legal remedy that fits your needs. Our San Diego-Chula Vista-Carlsbad area lemon lawyers can help, starting with a free consultation.
