AC not cooling car. Dealer found AC hose leaking. Replaced, recharged. Still not cooling well. AC randomly goes to FULL HEAT in the middle of a Florida summer. Been to the shop THREE times now, still a problem Transmission clunks when shifting from 3->2. Taken to the dealer 3 times, still not right. Taking it back in again this week. Rattle from instrument cluster, B-pillar, rear shelf hard drive squeals periodically Check Engine Light came on. Dealership says they updated software. Dealership didn't know what was wrong other than the light was on and they updated the software. Self-driving system and ECO start/stop were fighting with each other at red lights, causing the car to lurch forward and turn off brake lights. Not sure what the dealer did, but they actually managed to fix this.

They have offered to buy back the car, as they have others for this, but I'd rather they just fix this one. Rear window shelf area still has rattle -- I finally localized it to the 3rd brake light cover...but still needs to be repaired.  They tried felt-lining the instrument cluster (failed), replaced cluster (worked)

Loud whine coming from drive shaft or back of transmission. Heard it driving home from the dealership the first day. The Mercedes field representative told me it was a "characteristic" of the car so they could avoid triggering the California lemon law by making a third repair attempt. When I pointed out that neither I nor the service manager found this "characteristic" on any other E-Class MB he just kept repeating it was a "characteristic" and they could do nothing. I finally determined it was the bearings in the center support of the two-piece drive shaft and got rid of the POS automobile.

Cord was reconnected and malfunction light was reset via obdII by me. OBDII code P0444 indicating oxygen sensor fail. Suspect it was triggered by the previous dead battery, which was replaced.

Transmission was very slow to shift from D to R (more than 7 seconds) Dealer found no trouble codes at this time, therefore could not diagnose or find a problem Brought in due to a slight knock or rattle for approximately 3-4 sec at start up.

They are supposedly contacting my extended aftermarket warranty company to see if they will cover the repairs. Requires a new part, they cannot fix it. 
Mar 2011

The power rear window sunshade material was bunching up instead of disappearing into the cargo shelf like it is supposed to. Car underwent inspection by warranty company, work approved, new part ordered and installed. Both valve covers have been leaking for several months and were gradually getting worse. Warranty company inspected and authorized the replacement of both sides gaskets. The sunroof wind deflector will not raise on its own. The tech said a vinyl strip became stiff and prevents its proper operation. His opinion was too expensive to pay for myself and the warranty company refused to authorize this.

I bought the part and the tech installed the cap for the GPS because the rubber tip had fallen off. The intermittent wiper problem was discovered to be the result of the aftermarket windshield. Due to the cost, I am living with it for now. The auto-dimming rearview driver's side mirror had begun to darken. I ordered the part online and the tech popped it on while I was in the shop for the wiper issue. No additional charge for labor. The tech finally had the service manual and my intermttant wiper problem is diagnosed as the aftermarket windshield. This was still covered by the warranty. I ordered the parts and the tech installed the cap for the GPS antenna (rubber tip broke off) and the photo-chromatic glass for the driver's side mirror (was darkening).
