2005 E320 Sedan W211
konigstiger, thanks for this info. My 2005 E320 suddenly began smelling of gas after filling up. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the gas tank, no cost to me.

What does a brake job have to do with a fuel tank recall?

The tank and SBC unit are NOT recalls. They're extended warranties. An extended warranty and a recall are not the same thing.

You guys probably think venomous and poisonous are the same thing.

And some people call rechargeable batteries just batteries and not accumulators. What's your point? Want to open a healthcare forum here now? Never mind. We got it!

2004 E320; 2012 SLK 350; 1973 MGB MK III roadster.
Got the Sept, 2018 letter from M-B USA today regarding the SBC/Electrohydraulic Brake System. I have an 04 E320 and a 2012 SLK 350, seems both are covered.

The parking brake on my E320 sticks and is somewhat hard to release every time I use it. Time for a call to the MB dealer.

Also remember the 10 year/unlimited miles extended warranty on the fuel tank assembly on our old W211s slowly but surely comes to and end.

Got the second carís tank, both pumps and parts replaced. Saved over $3300 on the repair.

It's a 15 year unlimited miles extended warranty. Unless you're Pzev.

Yes, go to MB and they will look up whatís been done already and whatís still open based on your VIN.

The extended warranty isn't the same as a recall. With a recall, they just fix it. The extended warranty means they only fix it if it's bad. If it's not bad, they won't do anything but charge you for the diagnostic. The fuel tank is just an extended warranty, not a recall.
