The MB All-Weather floor mats for the W166 have been a bargain as compared to after-market mats - especially with the front built-in snaps.

Last week week it frst started with parts deptartment reorders - the black mats were shown on manufacturing hold with no target re-release date.

Today the official nitice all the All-Weather mats for the W166 were being pulled back AND owner mats will be recalled in September.

I have attached the internal dealer bulletin today.

It's a interesting read - especially since no one I know knows about the Brake Over Ride feature in the W166 described in the 2nd paragraph.

Make sure you read that one thru on that feature built into the W166 - kindof different.

Keep the beat !

So, I assume by the time owners get the recall notice, the dealers will have a supply of replacements.

It's a small thing, but it's nice to know MB is proactive with these things ... and the Brake Over-ride ... that is something I haven't heard about before.

We can hope there will be replacements at the time MB sends out the letter - but at the moiment that sounds almost too hopeful.

Yeh, the Brake over ride feature is interesting new information !

Brake over ride has been standard on most cars with drive by wire gas pedal.
Last time there was a focus on this was with Toyota that had some accidents/incidents, after that even Toyota changed their engine management to include this function.
