Mercedes-Benz, a division of Daimler AG, manufactures luxury automobiles, buses, and vans. The Daimler company produced its first Mercedes vehicle in 1899. Company founder Gottlieb Daimler was an inventor who patented one of the first internal-combustion engines and also developed the first commercially viable four-wheeled automobile. Despite this storied history, numerous Mercedes-Benz vehicles have been the subject of technical service bulletins and recalls in recent years. If your Mercedes-Benz is experiencing problems that have not been repaired after repeated attempts, you should consult an experienced California lemon law attorney.
CAA-The Lemon Firm, a premier consumer advocacy practice, represents Mercedes-Benz owners and lessees in California lemon law claims. We believe that you have a right to expect your vehicle to perform up to the standards advertised by Mercedes-Benz. Knowing that dealing with a defective Mercedes-Benz is frustrating, we will help you stand up to the automaker.
As your attorneys, we will help you navigate the legal system, handle all the details of your lemon law claim, and fight for the compensation you deserve. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to a replacement vehicle or a refund of the purchase price. You may also be entitled to civil damages — up to two times the purchase price — if we can demonstrate that Mercedes-Benz willfully violated provisions of the California lemon law.
Our legal team will leverage our knowledge and skills to help make you whole. Because the California lemon law makes it possible to recover attorney’s fees and costs, you will not pay anything to us – all of your legal bills are paid by the manufacturer; not by you.

Although Mercedes-Benz has a lower recall rate by comparison, the luxury automaker has issued recalls in recent years:
- In October 2019, Mercedes-Benz recalled 4,756 E-Class wagons for defective rear liftgate spoilers that could detach from the vehicle while driving. The recall affects the model year 2017-2018 E400s 2019 E450s and 2018-2019 model year AMG EG3 S Wagons. If the spoiler detaches, the risk of accidents and injuries increases. Dealers were instructed to inspect and replace the spoiler mounts.
- In August 2019, Mercedes-Benz recalled 26,584 vehicles due to improperly secured batteries. The recall included 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz C Class models, such as the C300 and AMG C43. The battery bracket may have lacked the proper manufacturing specifications. In the event of a collision, the battery may disconnect from the cables, disabling post-accident functions that require a power supply (e.g. hazard lights). The battery could also eject from the vehicle, posing a potential hazard to other drivers. Dealers were instructed to install a new mounting bracket at no charge to consumers.
- In December 2018, Mercedes-Benz recalled 104, 663 model year 2018-10`9 GLC SUVs and 2018 C-Class sedans, coupes, and convertibles due to a faulty airbag indicator light that may show the airbag is on even when it is off. Passengers who are unaware that the airbag is not working are at risk of a serious injury in an accident. The automaker attributed the problem to a software error. Mercedes instructed dealers to perform a software update to ensure the airbag indicator lights were working.
