I'm with Ray on this one, the part was likely damaged by the prior recall work. The spring is rated for at least 100k miles (My Mirano had north of 150k when it broke)Cardonman wrote: ↑Tue Nov 05, 2019 6:49 pmI had it checked today ($150) and you are right!! It is a spring/ring behind the airbag. For another $600 (part/labour) they’ll fix it for me once they get the part.
They had done the Takata recall back in February this year to add an extra ground wire and a contact ring. They claim that it’s simple “wear and tear”. Hmmm!!! I think that’s it for me. Going to the Model 3.
Yikes. So sorry to hear that. 35,000 miles is hardly anything :/Myja01 wrote: ↑Fri Nov 15, 2019 3:48 pmWith only 35000 miles my 2015 is at the MB dealer service shop after it suddenly stopped at the fast lane of one of Miami's highways.
Bad news: Electric Drive unit broke and needs to be replaced, cost of repair: $8.000.00
I wonder to know how come Mercedes Benz installed cheap Tesla parts without any quality control, I bought this car thinking on the prestige of Mercedes brand. I never imagined Mercedes could build a car for so a short life.
Basic guarantee expired three months ago and battery warranty does not cover the electric motor!
Unfortunately, here in South Florida there are not third party service shops that work in these cars that could help to save some money.
