asked by on

My 2006 Mercedes E500 recently showed 2 messages, "car riding too low"..." push brake pedal to adjust brakes", can I drive it to the repair shop?

If the brakes are effective and stop the vehicle, it is safe to drive it to a repair facility. Another option is to leave it as is and a mobile certified mechanic can be dispatched to your location to resolve the issue.
