Hello all! I've been lurking a bit and have gotten some valuable information from everyone here.
We recently purchased an '09 S63 AMG. Never knew it could be possible to fall in love with a car, but I have. While this is my first time owning a Mercedes, my boyfriend has owned several (including SL55 and SL65). I am the primary driver, but we will both be posting under this name.
I have looked for these concerns in other threads, but didn't see them mentioned.
1) The outdoor temp. display is wonky. When it's 80 outside, it could read in the 90's. It flucuates between 15-20 degrees when going from parked/idling (in both the sun and shade) to driving.
We have heard two different answers from the dealerships service dept., the temp gauges 'road temp' and not ambiant temp, and it's wonky, we'll keep working on it. I'm more apt to believe the latter.
2) About 50% of the time, the 'Check Engine Oil At Next Refueling Light' comes on when I get the car to 70+ mph.
It has been check into by service dept, and they have found oil level to be satisfactory, and will keep an eye on it.
Has anyone encountered either one of these situations with their S63 or other AMG car?
