Mercedes Benz / sbc breaking system

1 South Africa

Mercedes Benz E 270 CDi 2005, Fitted with a defective SBC breaking system on manufacturing of vehicle.
The system allows a certain amount of break times, then "Time Out". Leaving the driver without any breaks to stop the vehicle.
Luckily an accident was avoided.
MBSA refuses to replace the defective part, leaving me with a replacement cost of more than R22000.00 .
After some research on the web, I found proof that Mercedes has been aware of this problem since 2004.
Yet MBSA refuses any assistance regarding this matter.
I Feel this is a life threatening defect that may cost lives and people should be made aware of the risk they take every time they get in their cars.
