  • 169,500 miles
I had a 2007 S550 as I am going 70 miles per hour on a busy 405 freeway. And suddenly my vehicle front suspension full hard to the right almost collided with the vehicle on my right lane. But thank to the quick action of the driver on my right lane (he quickly change to the next lane when he saw my vehicle too close to his vehicle). If he not quickly changed to the next lane I am sure there is a multiple vehicle accident because it happen so quickly by the time I am reacted to control the vehicle, my vehicle already in his lane. I am used the emergency lane to get off the freeway at 5 mile per but my front suspension is moving up and down uneven like you are driving on uneven pavement. I had my vehicle tow to the dealer. And they are diagnosis with: Code 5200 B24/3 (left front body acceleration sensor): Signal implausible this is the same problem that my friend S550 had before but Mercedes dealer recall campaign no.2008080004. I had been show the recall letter to the service writer. After she check my VIN number and she said there is no recall for my vehicle. What can I do to have my vehicle fix under the recall campaign ? the part number need to be replace is : 004 542 35 18 if you are need any more information, I will try my best to provide it. Thank
