Rockville center service is run by complete incompetent and self serving individual who cares nothing about your car or u . they wants to make money for the company and the since weve owned benz cars for 30 yrs or longer the knowledge of quality is so cheap now its not worth buying those cars anymore. EVERYONE WHO HAS HAD CRANK PROBLEMS SHOULD GET TOGETHER AND FORM CLASS ACTION OR SEND LETTERS TO OWNER/HEADQUARTERS MANUFACTURER TO FORCE THEM TO FIX THIS COSTLY REPAIR. THE CARS WILL STALL OUT ANYPLACE ANY WHERE CAUSING UNSAFE ISSUES FOR DRIVER OR PEDESTRIANS. ROCKVILL CENTER HAS INCOMPETENT SECRETARY WHO BASICALLY TALKS TOO MUCH ABOUT NOTHING. ITS SUGGESTED TO GO TO A CLASSIER SERVICE SHOP OR PURCHASE A DIFFERENT CAR. AND THIS comes with 30 years experience with each yr causing less quality of the vehicles.Mutlipl issues, saw oil leak couldn't believe it was from my new car, Rockville center cared nothing aout it, don't buy there.

Dealer reported oil leaks in this area. I was allowed to look at the problem and confirmed the condition. It was fixed with a new gasket.
