It's well established that the shifting assembly was faulty on these cars.
Took the car to have an oil change and the mechanic came in and said the car wouldn't shift out of Park. It was stuck. Some think it might be the parking cylindroid and others have guessed it will be the shifting assembly.
Wondering if I should buy an extended warranty at this point or look for another car. The steering pump replacement and few other items like ball joint and battery are the only replacement items. The rest were " maintenance jobs".
After having the transmission , differential fluids changed/serivved and a ball joint replaced at 47000 miles, notice the car makes a strange "winding down" noise when lifting off the accelerator. Also notice the car seems to vibrate some and " idle rough". What could be the cause?
After having the work done the car doesn't drive quite as well. It makes a "winding down" noise and also notice a slight vibration at the center of the car in floor. What could have causeed this effect ?
When speeding on highway the car puts out a smell like sulphur. Why would this happen?
The steering pump had to be replaced at 44,000 miles on the SL500 Mercedes . Is this normal?
I took the car to a mechanic immediately when the "ABC " light came on. He told me it would take 2150$ to replace the steering pump which controls the steering and suspension. I think that price sounds a little over the top. What if anything can you suggest?
