I recently purchased a 2004 E 500 4Matic and I have a question about an issue with the brakes.

At slow speeds and when I pump the brake peddle a few times, I hear and feel a pump of some king kick-it and it vibrates up through the brake peddle. I also hear what I think is the same pump stay on for a few seconds (10 or 20) after I turn the carr off. It also feels, I think, like the brakes grab a little bit, even when there is presure on the peddle.

I tool it to the dealer who replaced some parts pursuant to a recent "recall" notice, but this problem persists. Any insight on what might be causing this would helpful to me when discussing it with the dealer.

Thanks.

I contacted Mercedes about the Technical Service Bulletin. They said my (used) vehicle had already had this repair made. However, it is now doing the same thing and is now causing "maufunction" to display.

What do I do?

These days, insurance companies are bending over backwards to match the needs of various classes. Just the other day, I saw a particular car insurance that offered coverage to car owners up to seventy-nine years of age. I suppose, once you are retired and almost entirely dependent on your pension plans, a financial support like this must be a great advantage. Elderly people are not the only group that is gaining from special car insurance plans.

Women are also being targeted as a specific class that has a set of requirements that are different from the men of the world. Moreover, women in general are reputed to drive more safely than the male species. Quite a number of ladies have been availing of women-specific car insurance plans.

In some countries such as the United Kingdom, it is mandatory to have car insurance before you take your new vehicle on the roads. You could be of the opinion that car insurance is a headache. Many people might just keep paying car insurance without ever being in any sort of accident that demands major repairs. That may be as true as can be. However, what about the times when your new wheels just won't start? What about the times when rain water seeps into your engine. What about the time when the annoying boy from next door makes a huge scratch on your car's side? It is at those times that you feel thankful for having got your car an insurance plan.

Insurance plans also vary from company to company and from time to time. They vary depending on the make of your car. If you have a top-end car, you will have no choice but to pay a higher insurance premium than somebody else. Your claim history will also determine your interest rate, just as when a bad credit history forces you to turn to bad credit car loans. Try sifting through at least half a dozen great plans and then select your favorite.
