NHTSA Investigation - wheel speed sensor

I guess after enough complaints of wheel speed sensor malfunction a case has been opened. Model years 2011 - 2018 are under investigation. No accidents or deaths but a lot of failures that could have not ended well. A majority are RV conversions so maybe the extra weight.
In my case it just happed a week ago in the mountains of Virginia in the middle of nowhere after driving all day in the rain. I was three weeks past the increased five year warranty.
Attached is the initial letter to MB for infomation.

What do you mean by 'increased five year warranty'? Far as I knew the standard warranty applied. I called MB when mine failed (3 yrs, 3 mos and 39,000 miles) and was told that it was not covered by warranty.

It is under the 2013 emissions warranty, check page 14, section 8 . I could be wrong but it says vehicle wheel speed sensor plain as day.
