Mercedes specifies that you activate your parking brake when parking.

Do that, and car won't roll back.

Otherwise, it's normal.

Your owners manual likely contains ...

Getting out of your vehicle with the gear selector lever not fully engaged in position P is dangerous. Also, when parked on an incline, position P alone may not prevent your vehicle from moving, possibly hitting people or objects.

Always set the parking brake in addition to shifting to position P.

When parked on an incline, turn front wheels towards the road curb.
If you don't have an owners manual, your dealer can get you one or you can order one at 800.for.merc
