Mercedes recalls 740,000 cars because sunroof can fly off

Mercedes announced a recall of 740,000 cars sold in the U.S. between 2001 and 2011 to have the bonding of the sunroof glass inspected and possibly replaced. Mercedes agreed to pay a $20 million civil penalty after an investigation into the handling of previous recalls.

It's a marketing issue. Call it the "Instavertible" and make it a feature!

If the car was made by Bethesda it would be a feature not a defect.

That moment you hit the sunroof button to have the glass fly off only to realize in disappointment that there is no button for a ejecter seat and your vehicle is not a spy car.

Meanwhile in Germany, car ads are all about Climate Protection. They'll suffer, sooner than later. Merkel's desperate attempt to sell German Cars in India is also going to fail. American Cars - now is your time to shine!

Having recently been affected by the newest Takata airbag recall, which resulted in our 1998 318i being bought back from us by BMW as there was a 20-month wait on replacement parts, I'm interested to see how this recall is handled. It's a far less serious issue though, than the shrapnel-deploying airbags in the Takata cases, for the driver (i.e.: the manufacturer's customer) at least - not so much for other people that may get hit by the detached sunroof - so that's probably why it hasn't been deemed too important until now.
