Rattling in gearshift area

I'm getting occasional gearshift rattle when driving and today it made an even louder rattle as I made a left turn at speed. There seems to be a bit more play in 'Drive' than what I'd expect if the car were new, i.e. you can move it up and down a 1/2" or so w/o shifting into 3rd.

Should I be overly concerned?

Hi Peter,

Is this an easy fix thru the top of the shifter frame or a major affair from underneath the car? Any idea on cost?

I'm in Miami, any leads on a good Mercedes shop, i.e. not a dealer?
