Federal safety regulators have begun a probe of fuel leaks in about 250,000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class cars. The investigation was launched after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Mercedes-Benz received more than 500 complaints from owners about a strong odor of gasoline, mainly after refueling. The NHTSA said fuel may be leaking from the upper part of the gas tank. No fires or injuries have been reported. The investigation includes vehicles from 2003 to 2008 model years.

Auto Show, you know, a faster model. The car is the SLS AMG Black Series. Black Series is to AMG what AMG is to Mercedes.

The nerve of someone filing for bankruptcy in the millions of dollars, but still giving lavish parties and owning a new Mercedes-Benz. . . . So much for personal responsibility and integrity in the 1990s. JANET MINAMI Woodland Hills
