Have the dealer try to work out this with MBUSA, for a consideration due to a problem occult to the customer but known to MB while the car was in warranty, without taking immediately any corrective action with their customers.
This has a catch that could come to bite you, so keep it to yourself unless they bring it up: 1. You should have complied with the maintenance program through your MB dealer or authorized shop. 2) You should show proof of transmission fluid and filter replacement at 39,000 miles, since there is no longer an ATF lasting "the life of the car".
For what is worth, if you do not use the dealer because you do not get any complementary treatment, make sure you use a transmission service shop familiar with MB G-tronic units.
A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.
Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
