I was wondering if anyone had the same problems as I have. These problems have been there since day one and I can't seem to figure out why.

1. When I turn the car off smoke comes out from the vents in the front bumper. I took it to service for this once, I was told it was the oil seals but I still have the problem.

2. My headlights seem to fog up often.


Anyone know what this could be?

I just finished reading the Operator's Manual and it says that the headlight can and will fog up. I was suprised to read that.

Hi
I own a 2012 sls roadster
Since day one I had super loud break
Squeal.
Mb replaced to pads and rotors and applied a paste,nothing solved it.
In total it was at the dealer 14 times
8 of the times the breaks got worked on.
I also had 2 engine failures one
Going 60 miles and hour on the 405 freeway when the car decided to get stuck on first gear and to shake like crazy.
I tried to resolve the matter with mb
But they gave me the run around.
I hired a lawyer that is sure the case is
100% a lemon but mb still would not take the car back.
The car does not run and has been sitting in my driveway for 7 months now.
Anyone here can help?
Thank you

What a sad story!!! Look for a guy nicknamed fabbrisd1 here on forum, he's mostly on the GL X166 forum... he works for MB US.. we had many a quarrel on the forums (this, and another as far as I remember) about MB quality of late! He MAY be able to help!!!

wow, very surprised to hear that! they tend to treat customers with SLS and S-Class cars with a little more urgency and courtesy? when my friend has any issues they are so quick to pick up the car leave him a loaner (usually an AMG car) and bring it back to him with no charge for the p/u and d/o or the loaner car! you need to talk to someone else at MBZ USA.
