Alldata Safety Recalls: MB fix?

I see 4 Safety recalls and 2 General recalls on the 96 E320. Are these things that MB will fix or will I have to pay to have these fixed?

All the other TSBs, Should these have been corrected during regular service? Are they issues that are covered by MB?

Go to local dealer & have them RUN your cars VIN for any open recalls!! This is called a vehicle master inquiry.
MB will pay for any government required recalls.

Some of the TSBs sound bad.

Thanks, captaincrunch.

It seems there are more recalls on the 86 than on the 97. The only recall on the 97 are airbag related.

The 97 list is at

Does anyone know MB's official policy about public TSBs?

I looked up that alldata thing for my 86 w126 and there were 3 recalls and 291 technical service bulletins. What does this mean? There are 294 things wrong with my car???
