Merdedes aware of the problem?

I was talking to a Mercedes-Benz Owners' Association official last friday and he said that Mercedes have had problems with the steering on the E320 petrol (W211).

Can anyone enlighten me further on this please.

Either on this forum or E-mail me at: eclassmerc@hotmail.co.uk

RE: Merdedes aware of the problem?

The car is one year old, it has been to the dealer 12 times, with 50 miles added to the clock each time by the dealer.

From new the car had a steering wobble at 60mph. MB UK has replaced the pump, replaced and tightened the steering rack. Now I am left with steering which is hard and does not turn in a silky smooth way. Also, it does not self centre properly.

I am now told that this is a characteristic of this model.

Have they explained why they are habitually dumping 59 more miles on your odo every time they have the car? I can understand roadtest needs, but that's seems excessive. I wonder if the service mgr lives 25 miles from the dealership?
