2012 Mercedes-Benz E550 ProblemsSqueaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
Lack of audio or cell phone functionality may be related to the failure of the audio gateway module.
2012 Mercedes-Benz E550 RecallsThe Right Side Curtain Airbag May Not Properly Deploy
Certain vehicles were assembled with a right side window curtain airbag that was stitched together improperly. In the event of a crash, this airbag may deflate more quickly than intended, reducing the protection it may provide to vehicle occupants. Mercedes-Benz dealers will replace the right side window curtain air bag on affected vehicles to correct this concern.
