11 E550 airmatic issue
While on a recent trip there was a malfunction message for the airmatic system. There was no difference in driveability. The manual indicated that the vehicle was not rising.
I took the car to the dealer yesterday (MB Peterborough) yesterday. They reported "balljoints on level sensor control arms are stiff/seized". Parts and labour and taxes would be in the $1,500 range. The car has only 80K KMs.
When purchased last year I received an extended Star Certified Warranty. I am awaiting MB's decision on whether this warranty covers these parts as they are not specifically identified in the standard extended warranty verbiage. I would be most disappointed in MB if they disallowed this claim on a vehicle with such low mileage.
Since driveability is not an issue, is there any long term handling or safety issue with just continuing to drive the vehicle without the repair?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
