Mercedes-Benz Problems

Instrument cluster displays tend to fail, especially the clock and gear indicators. Our technicians tell us the instrument cluster will require replacement to correct this issue.

Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

A repetitive clicking noise from behind the center area of the dash panel is usually caused by a broken stepper motor actuating arm. The actuating arm controls the direction of air flow in the climate control system. Disassembly of the center console will be required to access and change the broken arm with the updated, reinforced part.

Mercedes-Benz Recalls

These vehicles are being recalled because the front seat belt anchors may not be installed correctly and can come loose in a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect the affected front seat belt anchors and perform the necessary correction.

The passenger seat cushion contains a sensing device (occupant classification system, or OCS) to determine if a child safety seat is in use on that seat. The system is designed to turn off the passenger airbag when the system senses a child safety seat in use. These vehicles are being recalled because the system may not correctly classify a very light weight person and incorrectly disable the passenger airbag. This would increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the passenger seat cushion, including the OCS to correct this concern.

Seat belts are secured to the vehicle body at various points using special anchor bolts. These 2013 GL models are being recalled because the anchor bolts for the second row seat belts may not have been tightened correctly during vehicle assembly. If these bolts are loose, a belted occupant my not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect the affect bolts and tighten them as necessary.

Mercedes-Benz Reviews

I love my car but this model has some nagging issues. Common problems with the E series are failure of the climate control LCD panel, failure of the LED displays in the instrument cluster, squeaky steering wheel, and failure of the auto dimming drivers side mirror. Mine has experienced all of theses. The instrument cluster and climate control are so common I feel Mercedes should issue a recall.

I love my Mercedes Benz 2001 E320. It's a great car. There's a little problem. It has this rough sound when I start it and get going, then, once I'm on the road at a set speed it drives very smooth. One mechanic said it was the motor mount then another said it was the air flow in the engine. What to do, what to do?
