...searching for a recall this ignition switch has caused 14 deaths~ http://www.latimes.com/business/autos/la-fi-mo-autos-mercedes- benz-recalls-284000-cars-20140429-story.html


This is a bad thing,being there is no dealer near you,it is the key it self that is this issue,the computer does not reconize the key,and is in lock mode/antitheft,meaning the key will have to be reprogramed to the car,s computer,you might call a dealer in the US and give them the vin to make you a key,but you will have to show owner ship of the car to them to do it,


hmm, how about this discussion? http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t32359_ds565938


too funny...same here..so is it a recall issue and do we need to go directly to the dealer or can we go to a certified auto mercedes car service?
