Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

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.

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.

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).

Most versatile car I've ever owned. Rock-solid. Not one problem.

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.

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!!!!!!!!!.
