DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A man living in ”Seven Bridges” in Delray Beach is suing Mercdes-Benz, claiming that the $100,000 S-Class S560V that he purchased from Mercedes of Palm Beach is a lemon.

Carlo Filippelli Jr. of Eden Roc Court purchased the 2018 vehicle on June 22, 2018, and almost immediately began experiencing problems. Among the issues, according to the lawsuit:

“Defective engine, transmission and/or electrical system as evidenced by a no start condition, the inoperable dashboard lights are on, the front camera is inoperable, the handsfree entry into trunk is working intermittently, and an oil leak.”

“Defective body and trim as evidenced by the storage tray in the trunk is not locking into place.”

Filippelli sought assistance multiple times form authorized Mercedes-Benz service professionals, but the company allegedly failed to solve the problems during each and every service attempt.

It was not immediately clear why it took four years to file a lawsuit, but Mr. Filippeli does appear to hold his vehicles for quite some time. He traded a 2008 S550 in 2018 for the new S-Class. That vehicle, with 82,528 miles, was assigned a trade-in value of $12,500.

Mercedes-Benz USA had not filed a response to the suit as of 5:40 a.m. Friday morning.
