2008 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Problems

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The active body control system can leak fluid from numerous areas, including the tandem pump, hydraulic lines, struts, and/or seals. If it is not repaired, the vehicle ride height could drop too low and cause damage to the undercarriage.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Leaks in the pneumatic system will cause problems with the dynamic seats and the trunk and/or door closing assist.

Engine -- Verified

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Front thrust arm and control arm bushings can crack and sometimes tear completely. If this is not repaired quickly, damage to the front subframe unit will occur, which is very expensive to repair. Updated control arms (that prevent damage to the subframe when the bushings wear out) are available.

Brakes -- Verified

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly may fail due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend a complete brake system flush every two years in order to help prevent this problem.
