SLK Owners,

Several of us are making an effort to officially complain to the Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), a subsidary of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

If your car has the electro chromic self-dimming interior mirror, there is siginficant documentation on benzworld as well as several other forums that this mirror will at some point fail due to the internal liquid leaking out. The nature of the complaint is that the default mirror has no manual backup, which should make the manufacturer responsible. Additionally, there is presidence where the manufacturer was replacing these mirrors for free at some point. By providing this service for free to some, and refusing to others, there is some cause for additional concern.

With special thanks to ByeByeAmericanPie, we've very significant and thorough documentation on this link below. I've put up step by step instructions for how you can join us and file a complaint. It takes approximately 5 minutes. I invite you to file a complaint even if you chose to replace your mirror. The more complaints we get, the more likely we'll get their attention. Even if you're mirror isn't leaking now, pay attention, as it appears it is likely to start.
