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.
