Imagine plunking down tens of thousands of dollars on a beautiful Mercedes Benz C-Class sedan. You’ve worked hard and you are now treating yourself to a true luxury vehicle. The ride is smooth and quiet, your family and friends compliment you on such a beautiful vehicle….and then your seats bleed. Literally, your Mercedes seats bleed an oily, slippery substance like a scene out of a bad science fiction movie.
The oily residue appears when the upholstery gets cold and then heats up again rapidly. Mercedes Benz has issued a technical service bulletin, however even in vehicles where the upholstery is replaced, the Mercedes bleeding seats reappear. The vehicles affected seem to be produced in the US with MB Tex vinyl.
If you are suffering with Mercedes bleeding seats and you have been to a Mercedes authorized dealership numerous times to address the issue, or your vehicle has been out of service for a significant period of time, you may be entitled to remedy under State Lemon Laws or Federal Warranty Statutes.
