Re: Re: So doesn't affect 1996 models right?

Folks--PLEASE help me with this issue. I have a '96 210 and the passenger side front spring mount rusted straight through! I was driving recently and the car suddenly dipped down and a spring ejected from the bottom. The car is being repaired at the moment and Mercedes is telling me they will not help defray the costs. The car has 100,008 miles on it, which they say far exceeds the warranty. I am seriously contemplating legal action... Does anyone have a recall code that I can use in my defense? Thanks ever so much!

Re: is this it?

OKay--thanks. I've been dealing with MB for several weeks now about this issue and finally got the car back today, but had to foot the $580 USD bill. I'll post an update once I (hopefully) get some assistance from MB. There probably aren't many W210's with over 100k miles on them like mine, and perhaps mine may be one of the first that has developed this problem (spring cup rust). <br> <br> Thanks again!

doug, I don't know why your E420 gets loud at 120mph but I don't have that problem. Have reached 130mph in my E420 on a couple of occassions and didn't hear or feel a thing and mine has 136k miles on it! I drive between 90-100 all the time and the car runs great. Might have to have yours checked out...
