Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Problems

Poor AC performance Due to Evaporator Temperature Sensor Failure

The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.

Front thrust arm and control arm bushing can crack or tear
Front thrust arm and control arm bushings can crack and sometimes tear completely. If this is not repaired quickly, damage to the front subframe unit will occur, which is very expensive to repair. Updated control arms (that prevent damage to the subframe when the bushings wear out) are available.
The Differential May Develop Leaks From the Seals or Cover

High mileage or older vehicles commonly develop leaks from the differential seals and/or cover. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit whenever these leaks are repaired.

Front Passenger Seat Air Bag May Not Deploy Properly

Passenger Front Air Bag May Shut Off Unintentionally

Excellent speed and drive, this car has been 15% of it's life in the dealer with problems. Motor, tranny, suspension, ect, But due to it's speed and looks I will no change this car. I got the extended 7/100K MB CPO Warranty and intent to use all. I will get rid of this car after the warranty and POOR SUCKER who buys this car with out warranty.
