Angry 2006 S500 Airmatic Problem-vsit workshop.

Is this problem widespread? How dangerous is?

Unfortunately there are a lot of bugs in the Airmatic system, not only on the S-Class. However most of the complaints seem to come from S-Class owners. Compared to around the 2000 period, it's improved quite a bit.

Take it to the dealer right away and you'll be fine.

Thank you for your answer. Tomorrow I'll take it to the dealer. Most of the problems are happening during the week-end.
My best.

You're doing the right thing by going to the dealer. You can save a lot of time, trouble and money by finding and fixing it quickly. I never got the warning but found my car "lowered" one morning, at all four wheels. (It looked good, actually.) I drove carefully to the dealer and had to have an air pump replaced for about $900. That was about five years ago. No problems since. If your car drops, be very careful if you drive it or you can damage the struts, and that can be very expensive. Good luck! And report back as to cause and cure. That is what this site is about: Helping us all w/ quantity and quality of information.

Don't believe everything you think
