My complaint is against Mercedes-Benz, usa for their failure to inform me of the substantive defects and recalls at the time of my purchase of the 2006 Mercedes C280; VIN [xxx]. on April 24, 2009, I engaged in a contract with Mercedes Benz financial services for the purchase of the above 2006 C-280. I was never informed of the serious defects on the vehicle. I was never given an opportunity to make an informed decision. Hence, the business practice of Mercedes Benz and or it's dealership was deceptive. It is hard to imagine that anyone, let alone myself, whose medical impairment of fear, anxiety and panic disorder (ada act) would purchase a vehicle with full knowledge of the risk factors involved; during and prior to the purchase, pursuant to: A). report date:December 3, 2011 at 07:19 am mfr's report date: Dec 15, 2005...NHTSA campaign id number: 05V560000..component: (air bags)... consequence: In the event of a crash, an occupant may not be properly restrained which could (result in injuries).. dealers will install a new air bag inflater module free of charge Mercedes-Benz recall no. 2006020005.

Pulling into parking space car accelerated and hit tree. Air bags did not inflate and satellite did not notify police. Could not stop vehicle. Myself and 2 other people were injured. Similar situation happened earlier this year when vehicle would not stop, struck car in front of me, air bags did not inflate and satellite did not notify police. In both instances there was extensive damage to my vehicle, the most recent over $20,000. The car is still in repair shop 4 weeks after accident. I am afraid to drive the car because I am fearful the same thing will happen.
