Hi All,<br> <br> This is my first post here, though I participate in the Gwagen forum as a G owner. I just bought a '01 S600 with distronic. On my drive home I had several instances where the distronic disengaged due to an 'external malfunction'. It seems like it would fail 2-3 times in a row before returning to normal. It was always on a clear road with nothing in front of the car for a great distance. For most of the 2400 mile trip it functioned perfectly. The dealer states that no fault codes are stored and the dash display lists no faults either. <br> <br> Has anybody else with this system had any problems?

The Distronic (DTR-distance tracking radar) that your vehicle is equipped w/ is really neat. However, 2001 is the first production year w/ that available option. Everyone knows what the deal is w/ pre-production and first year production options/vehicles. Proceed w/ caution.........:)
