Front tires needed replacement after getting worn out from the inside edges due to bad alignment. It is a repeat "feature" - the car seems to eat either the front set of tires or the rear one. Driven 8 miles daily. No harsh turns or breaks whatsoever. But the issue keeps on coming up in 8-10K miles. And its either the front set or the rear. Car is always dealer maintained and all reports show alignment as correct and other components working as required. IF anything is off, i get it replaced immediately. This is my wife's daily driver and I don't like her or kids stranded on road side so I maintain it religiously.

The engine was leaking oil on the ground. This was traced to a leaking intercooler gasket. The full repair required a complete tear down of the upper engine, gasket replacements, replacement of one Oxygen sensor, rebuilding of turbocharger, replacement of EGR valve, replacement of turbo control module. No more leaks and the check engine light is off. NB: One thing that we learned is that the ODBC diagnostic system mapping for the upper and lower Oxygen Sensors is reversed in comparison to the Star diagnostic system. Beware!

The theft protection alarm was going off intermittently. The dealer supposedly traced it to a front door contact switch that had an electrical fault. They replaced that $12.00 part for $366.00 in labor. However, it again went off at 4:20 a.m. some days later. As the problem has not occurred while the car has been in the shop, they are unable to determine the cause and fix it. I will have to disconnect the battery when I go on a two-week trip coming up. I may have to ask for a refund.

ESP failure alarm constantly coming up with related tyre pressure sensor inoperative. Suspension becomes harsh while failure showing. Steering angle sensor failure in this case. Could also have been brake light switch or a wheel speed sensor. Removed and replaced steering angle sensor with second hand unit. New Mercedes part unreasonably priced for what it is. I can now advise the the old unit was in fact serviceable. Stripped it down, cleaned it and retested it and it works just fine. Simple job but must be done carefully. Many video's online to follow.

Gearbox in limp mode. Bump into drive and reverse. Will not change out of 2ND gear. Speed sensor on Contact plate failed. Contact plate replaced with reconditioned unit. This was a fail. Ultimately took three units before it would work. Also proper adaption had to be completed using STAR to resolve gear changing. Mercedes dealership would not supply genuine part unless done in their workshop. Yet they also use same shop I used to program.Their quote almost three times the amount. Later found we could buy the genuine plate via a gearbox spares company for the same price of the recon unit. Heard a Ceraking noise in suspension over speed bumps. Inspected suspension and found ball joint worn. Replaced drivers side lower ball joint with arm.
