Mercedes-Benz, more commonly referred to by consumers as Mercedes, is a vehicle manufacturing company based in Germany with a stellar international reputation as one of the most luxurious brands on the market. In fact Mercedes-Benz was considered the largest vehicle manufacturing company and seller of luxury, high-end performance vehicles after selling around 2.3 million cars in 2018. Though Mercedes-Benz has an incredible reputation for creating some of the most high end and prestigious car models on the market, it’s inevitable that some of their vehicles out on the market and on the roads qualify as lemons.
Based on the massive number of vehicles that Mercedes-Benz manufactures and sells in a given year, the likelihood that your Mercedes could be a lemon is higher than many other car brands. Many people would be very surprised to learn that the parent company of Mercedes-Benz called Daimler has recently agreed to a settlement of over $700 million in a class action lawsuit with Mercedes-Benz vehicle owners. This was because of the software included in Mercedes-Benz models that cheated testing for emission.
Essentially, they charged consumers a premium price tag for their “clean vehicles” when in actuality, the emissions test was a total scam. If you have bought a Mercedes-Benz “clean vehicle” or believe that your Mercedes could be a lemon because of an unreasonable amount of repair attempts, speak with a lemon law attorney who can get you the refund or replacement that you are legally entitled to.
