body on SL55 AMG keeps dropping within two or three hours, need to raise body prior to driving. MB wants $7,0000 to fix the metering valves?
for the past week my SL55 AMG has been dropping approximately 3 inches while stopped at red lights and stop signs...today, I found a lot of fluid under my car, and when I powered on my vehicle, a red ABC light came on along with the warning, "Drive carefully". I'm about to take my vehicle to the shop here in town to determine the cost of repair...I came here looking for a general estimate on the cost. Last time I took my vehicle in for repairs, I was charged $1,500 for what was essentially a fuse replacement... I don't want to get jacked around again.
