2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Electrical System Problems

Drivers want a luxury vehicle that can provide every electrical feature possible. For the money spent on the S-Class, it’s amazing that this vehicle got as far as it did, especially with all of the electrical defects.

Here’s one example on the NHTSA website. “The contact owns a 2022 Mercedes-Benz S500. The contact received a notification for NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V00J000 (Electrical System, Communication) however, the parts for the repair were unavailable. The dealer had been notified about the recall and confirmed that parts were not yet available. The manufacturer had been notified of the recall. The contact stated that the manufacturer had exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the repair. The contact also mentioned that he experienced a blowout failure with the passenger’s side front Pirelli PZero Tire, Tire Size: 255/35/R21, DOT Number: 1UN13874K. The contact stated that he replaced the tire with the spare; however, the vehicle was not taken to an independent mechanic or dealer. The contact stated that approximately a week later, the driver’s side tire experienced the same blowout failure and was taken to an independent mechanic. The contact stated that the driver’s tire had the same tire information as the front passenger’s side tire. The mechanic informed him that there were bubbles formed on the rear passenger’s side tire; Tire Size: 255/30/R21, DOT Number: IXTY8464L. The mechanic suggested that all the tires be replaced. The tire and vehicle manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The tire failure mileage was approximately 2,000. VIN tool confirms parts not available.”

The recall being referred to related to the disable eCall system that prevents occupants from getting emergency services during an accident. The issue was related to bad software, so there weren’t many parts needed to fix the problem. Additionally, another recall, NHTSA Campaign Number 21V931000 states that affected vehicles had the internet and television display on while driving, leading to distraction. So, not only could the S-Class cause an accident, but it could also prevent occupants from getting any help afterward. It’s the perfect storm of disaster waiting to happen and not worth paying more for.

2022 Mercedes Benz S Class Structural Problems

Everything should be perfect when purchasing a flagship luxury model, but that’s not true with the S-Class.

Here’s a simple complaint left on the MB World Forum. “Wind noise coming from front windows.”

Additionally, S-Class vehicles have been the focus of other issues throughout the years. Previous models have been studied as part of a class-action lawsuit showing that the glass sunroof can burst for no reason. The issue is solely because of a poor design, which is exactly what is shown with newer models. Engineers didn’t take time to ensure a solid build, which can also be seen with Service Bulletin #LI7210P073487. This communication shows that the front door window can clutter when being put down. The newer Mercedes is more like a jalopy going down the road.
