How to check for RECALLS

A recall is issued when the car manufacturer, in this case Mercedes Benz or NHTSA determine that a certain model of a Mercedes Benz has a safety defect or does not meet the federal safety standard. If there is a recall on your Mercedes Benz the manufacturer is responsible to replace or repair the defective item at no cost to you.  If a recall is issued for a specific car model the manufacturer is required to send you a letter to notify you. Recalls are mandatory, the dealer is required to repair your vehicle for free.

Check for Technical Service Bulletins

A TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) is released when a known problem has been reported too frequently for a specific car model. A TSB can also be issued by manufacturer to notify your local dealer on procedures, modifications required or parts impacted by the TSB. TSBs are only covered by the dealer if the car is within the warranty period. If the car is outside of the warranty period, in most cases you will have to pay for the repair. In some cases the dealer offers to complete the TSB repairs for free. They are not mandatory repairs like the recalls.
