ABC in 2002 CL500

I recently purchased a 2002 CL 500 with 95,000 miles. It works great, except that I occasionally get a "Check ABC - Visit Workshop" message. It is the white message, not the red one I have read about. When I turn off the engine and re-start it, the message goes away, and I can drive for several hundred miles or more without it coming on, but once in a while it comes back on. It came on twice during the 3,000 miles I have put on the car. The dealer says the computer shows that I need to replace the left rear ABC unit (or some parts therein). The car doesn't lower itself, or show any fluid leaks, or anything like that. It runs fine. My question is whether I should get it fixed (and take a chance that it could spring a leak or fail once someone messes with it), or just put the required part (which the dealer has ordered) in my trunk and drive the car until something actually fails? Thanks! Have a great day! Matt
