i work at mercedes and this is an industry thing, not a brand thing.

under certain situations the DOT makes it very difficult to ship or sell cars with open safety-defect recalls.

we're working through a lot of cars, and had a large stop-sale on some GLA and CLA class cars.

think of it like this, the DEALER does not want any part of liability of selling a car that can get smashed, and have the safety devices kill you.
the MAKER even more so does not want that.

all in all, if a maker states stop sale, then it's a done deal.
