2002 SLK 32 AMG, bone stock. 1987 190E 2.3-16 valve (destroyed). 2005 E320 new toy.
Soooo does this affect 320s and 32s??? cause I read somewhere else it was just for Es and CLSs.But the recall, which is not safety-related, covers all cars with six and eight cylinder petrol engines built from June 2001 to November last year, plus all E-Class, SL-Class cabriolets and CLS-Class coupes made since June 2001
Hmm id disagree, I know what I would put money on still running w/o problems at 200k miles, and it won't be the benz I guess it depends on how you define "quality". Will the leather still be softer, sure. But if I need something to work everytime w/o thinking twice mb could take many a lesson from Toyota or Honda. Maybe I am too cynical but mb isnâ€™t doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They have to attempt to compete in a market that quite frankly the competition is kickin their ass. It always is disappointing to see companies that ride on their reps until it has tarnished them, then be amazed that ppl are bashing them. This being my first, and 95% chance last, mb the star doesnâ€™t shine bright anymore. Who knows maybe Chrysler can help straighten them out Daniel - 4/3/2005 5:13 PM
I think this is good news - not the fact that the cars are having problems, but that MB is willing to do such a huge recall without having to be forced to do it. It shows to me that they are putting quality first again, and are willing to make existing customers happy.
And let's face it, a "bad quality" Mercedes is still miles ahead of a Toyota or Honda! [}]
