car   Power Assist Hydraulic Brake problem of Mercedes Benz E Class

The car was a 2003 Mercedes Benz E Class. Crash was involved with the Mercedes Benz E Class. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was WDBUF65J63_. I was involved in a rear-end collision in 9-04 where my 2003 mercedes (mb) was unable to stop in time. My car was not able to stop in time even though it was traveling only about 20 mph and that I applied quick, maximum pressure to the brakes. There was one other "close-call" a few weeks prior to the accident. When I called the mercedes customer service 800 # and the mercedes dealer, both of them denied that there were any reports or recalls of brake failure. Therefore I was deemed to be at fault for the accident at that time. When I took my mb for routine service in 2-05, the tech indicated that there was a brake recall and proceeded to make the repair. Now in 2-06, I received yet another brake recall (campaign # 2005-110001). One statement in the recall was "the brake pedal travel will be noticeably longer which could lead to a vehicle crash. " my previous attempts at contacting mb resulted in their repeated denial that they were at fault for the brake failure and the accident. With the evidence presented and the repeated nature of the brake recalls, I feel that they are responsible and should reimburse myself and others like me for the increases in the insurance premium as well as the insurance deductible. It is a small price to pay for the integrity of a renowned car company. This issue happened on Saturday, Sep. 11, 2004.
