If you can make a rich corporation like MBUSA pay for the repair, or more accurately, persuade them to repair it as their recall seems to promise, more power to you.
I do wonder how much the individual management of each MB dealer has an effect on whether they confirm & repair or deny. Perhaps no one can really say !
I'd love to hear if other MB owners have gone between 2 MB dealers and had one say NO, then another YES to the same request ?
In our sparse East Texas locale, we hardly have that option. You seem to be in So Cal, were you probably do.
When my Catalytic weld failed, I didn't know about this recall.
And truly even if my MB Dealer HAD offered, it would have been more hassle to make the appointment & 90 mile drive, than just going to my local exhaust shop.
I did pick the one that had the overall best Google reviews, and they did do good work, made me happy and charges were reasonable.
Oh, and by the way I'm sure the MB dealer wouldn't have suggested removing my clogged rear cats - and my M113 is soooo much happier now, so that's a benefit in & of itself.
Let us know how it works out - Looks like from your Sig, you're no stranger to Automotive Dealerships !
