Owners of the CLK or SL Mercedes models who suffered front bumper damage upon backing out of a parking spot may have legal recourse. Reportedly, these bumpers contain a design defect which may allow the front bumper to catch onto parking lot curb stops, resulting in damage to the bumper when the driver pulls out of a parking space. Because the manufacturer may have released a defective product into the marketplace, drivers who suffered Mercedes bumper damage as a result of this alleged design defect may be able to file a claim seeking compensation for damages.
Mercedes Bumper Damage Linked to Design Flaw
Complaints have surfaced that front-end bumpers in various CLK and SL Mercedes models have a faulty design that causes the bumper to catch on parking lot curb stops, resulting in damage to the bumper when consumers back out of a parking space. According to complaints, this damage occurs as a result of a design defect in the front bumper assembly because the bumper is lower to the ground than the height of a curb or a concrete tire stop. It appears that the company is not covering the cost of its Mercedes bumper repair under its vehicle warranties, and some consumers have reportedly paid up to $2,500 to repair the damage.
