New R500 Owner - Stop the noises
I'm a new R500 class owner. I am mercedes benz enthusist of 20 years, and now with my first child on the way I was relieved when the R Class came out, so I bought one. The car is comfortable and the drive is supurb. However, after breaking her in for the past month I have stumbled into what may be a defect for future new owners to be aware of. Evidently, when you exceed the 500 mile 'break-in' mileage threshold, there is a vibrational humming noise that comes from the front left section of the car. I brought this to the attention of my MB dealer and they say that this noise is consideered 'normal'. Well, I told them that I have owned mercs for more than 20 years and that this noise is not normal or acceptable. I told them that I want a more indepth analysis of what is causing the noise, and I want the noise stopped. We'll see what happens, but if anyone has had the same experience, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
