Hi guys, this is the first post of mine and I didn't expect it could be about a lemon SL.
I bought a new 2016 sl400 yesterday, after leaving the dealer, the engine of my new sl stall 2 times in 3 miles. And till now, I dived it for about 50 miles, and it stall 6 times...
By saying stall, I mean while I am standing at traffic, the car can not move forward after i release the brake. The engine totally stopped and can not be started like in eco mode. I need to restart the engine by pushing the start button. And usually the first push bring the car to N gear, then I have to change to D gear.
MY question, is that is this problem a normally problem for new car? Or this could be something serious?
And I have my car in the service department of the dealer now, will this record be a problem that hurts the resale value of my car?
Can I ask the dealer to replace a new car for me? Since this problem happens just so early when i only drive 3 miles.
I am very nervous now. This experience totally ruin my joy of having a new car...
Many thanks for you help.
BTW I live in New York.
