Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Problems
Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
Rear air springs (bellows) may develop leaks, which causes the air pump to run more often to maintain ride height. Our technicians recommend that leaking air springs be replaced.

Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Reviews
Most versatile car I've ever owned. Rock-solid. Not one problem.
My 2011 E63 has less than 5,000 miles. A warning message "check engine oil at next refuelling" keeps coming on. I added 1 quart of oil 1,000 miles ago and now the warning message comes on again. 2 qrts of oil burned in less than 5,000 miles!!!!!!!!!. The exhaust tail pipes show excess carbon build up so this engine is buring oil. Anyone else experiencing this? I am taking the vehicle in next w...
I dont want to trade it. Its 6 years old now and I love it. Tires wear out, but its a high performance car. Heard other model year e63's had some problems.
