I am reporting a problem regarding speed control, significant acceleration, and none deployment of airbag of a 2008 Mercedes Benz C-300.
On Feb.28, 2012 at 1:00pm as I was trying to park my car in the garage where I work (I probably had a speed of 5 mph) when suddenly the car malfunctioned and accelerated to the fullest while I had my foot on the brake. I was approximately 15 feet away from the wall. I tried putting the car in reverse to stop the car to no avail. The car hit the wall with significant impact and I sustained chest and neck injuries. The engine was pushed back but the airbag did not deploy. The transmission was stuck in reverse. The car was totaled.
I found out that there were 8 cars of the same model (C-300) reported on this site as having malfunctioned in the same way.
I have taken the issue to Mercedes Benz corporate office and they said they would investigate and inform me about the situation. I have not heard from them yet.
