    THE LEAKING STRUT AND MANIFOLD SENSORS ARE COMMON. THE WIPER ISSUE COULD BE DUE TO RAIN SENSOR OR LOAD SENSOR PROBLEM. THE VEHICLE HAS TO BE CHECKED OUT WITH DIAGNOSIS SOFTWARE. IF YOU ONLY HAVE 50K AND IT IS ONLY 4 YEARS OLD I WOULD GO BACK TO THE DEALER AND TALK TO THE SERVICE OR GENERAL MANAGER AND GET THEM TO REPAIR UNDER WARRANTY. THEY CAN AND IF YOU PUSH THE ISSUE THEY WILL COVER IT. IF NOT A SPECIALTY SHOP WOULD NEED TO DIAG THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK. PS. IF YOU GET KNOWHERE CALL MBZ OF NORTH AMERICA. NUMBER IS IN YOU OWNERS MANUAL.
