Clear signs of water getting inside .... corrosion, significant damage.
As I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I sent a mechanic friend to confirm what I was told via phone....and he did. I have also heard that there have been problems with coolant getting into the transmission from a faulty radiator on C class mercedes'.
Be that as it may .... $5,700 for the transmission and new radiator. Geez.
Warranty company denied the claim saying that I must have done something to " get water into the trans " ( ie I must have driven the vehicle through 5 feet of water or travelled back in time and drove it through hurricane Katrina ) . Bear in mind that I purchased the car ( a 2003 ) in December. And no, I don't live in Louisiana.
I may have to pursue legal action.
WARN EVERYONE YOU CAN NOT TO USE GREAT LAKES WARRANTY Corp. I have been doing some investigation, and other people have had problems with them as well.
