 Description of the problemI was driving down a side road by a college in lowell ma and my dash board lite up and starting beeping. Said brake failure sort stopping distance, visit work shop asap. I tried to stop the car but it was very hard stopping it, i honked the horn because i was coming up on a school crossing( thank god) they all moved out of the way because i would have ran over them all. I got the car stopped and shut it off, police over saw the whole thing and pulled up behind me and i explained what happened, we went to go start the car up and all the light where off and the car seemed fine, there was no way i was taking that chance again so i called a tow truck and had it towed to my garage, mechanic just called me and said nothing was stored in the computer system and the brakes are working fine now. He checked on line to see if there where any other complaint about this issue and informed there a lot of problem from mercedes benz owners on this issue. I will not drive this car again, i could have killed all those people in the walk way because of this problem that mercedes is aware of. Please help ! I just looked up the same information on google and there are hundred of complaint about the same issue, my brakes are new. It is a electrical problem that they are aware of.
