I wish the speedo needle was RED like the AMG's. The Nav. system is not what I would expect from Mercedes. A Garmin responds better. Automatic headlights are fantastic.Steering a little over power-ful.When we first got the car after one month the AC blew cold on the left and heat on the right.Turn the car off, and it would go back to normal.We took it back to the dealer three times, they could not duplicate the problem nor did it set any code.This finally got fixed after a year and a half.Then down shifting going up a hill slowly a terrible clunk from second to first.They could not duplicate this problem as the dealership and general area is on the level.I told them to keep the car and have someone take it into the hills. The following day they claimed they could not duplicate the problem, but there was now new soft wear to program the transmission control module. Amazing how they got this today,and this is SERVICE?
2011 e550. New brakes (pads and roters) at 35000 miles. MB could give a shit, just blows you off. why would a rotor go bad. I had a 74 240 and its rotors a probably still good. I am enjoying my last MB. About a year to go on the pitiful waranty and then it is off to Lexus. Oh, I have been driving MB's for over 50 years. Dave Cates.
I have a 2011 e550, within the last 18 months took it in 14 times due to different problems. I drove the dealership loaner more than I do my car. I bought this car brand new because I want peace of mind but in contrary I have nothing but headache and frustration. After I brought the car home, the first three months I was having problem with starting the car. IT WOULDN'T START. Roadside assistance had to come and get me several times at different places. A few weeks later a module of some kind fell out of the seat, I was told that never happened and they were shocked to see it. Then the brakes squeaked, four brakes had to be replaced after only 8,000 miles and a month ago, the same problem occurred but this time Mercedes wouldn't do anything about it. They completely blew me off. Their response was the problem is annoying not life threatening. Today my car is in the service department again, it's the problem with suspension. Valves leaking caused air compressor to blow out and this is the third time within the last twelve months with problems related to suspension system. For God's sake, this was a brand new MERCEDES, supposedly a world renowned brand. Mercedes won't stand behind their products. It's very disappointing, its might as well labeled MADE IN CHINA. I just got a RECALL letter for suspension and steering, fuel pump, and airbags defect. Great.
