I was told that the rear differential needs to be replaced. I'm hearing more "road noise"inside car than I should--it's not a grinding noise. This is a recently purchased vehicle for me. Car has Ferelli Pirelli tires. Car has been serviced regularly by Mercedes sales/service dealer where it was purchased.
