Mercedes-Benz, more casually referred to by many as Mercedes, is a German automobile manufacturer with an international reputation as one of the most luxurious vehicle brands across the world. In fact, in 2018, Mercedes-Benz was considered the largest vehicle manufacturer and seller of luxury, high-end vehicles, selling around 2.3 million cars. Though Mercedes-Benz has a stellar reputation for creating some of the most prestigious and high end vehicles on the market, there is no surprise that some of their vehicles qualify as lemons.
Just due to the sheer amount of vehicles that Mercedes-Benz manufactures and sells in a given year, the odds that your Mercedes may be a lemon is higher than other vehicle brands. Many people would be surprised to learn that Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, agreed to settle over $700 million to vehicle owners in a class action lawsuit.
This was due to the software in Mercedes-Benz vehicles that cheated emission testing, so they charged consumers a higher price tag for their “cleaner cars” when in reality, the emissions test was a complete scam. If you purchased a Mercedes-Benz “clean vehicle” or believe that your Mercedes may qualify as a lemon due to an unreasonable amount of repairs, speak with an experienced attorney who can get you the refund or replacement that you are entitled to.
