My 02 4matic wagon has rust right below rear tailgate window. I got a quote of $650.00 to repair. Does Mercedes honor anything in this respect. I am way out of warranty obviously.

A little steep, I got MB to split the cost of re doing the bottoms of my doors, and I also am seeing a little rust just under the wiper. I doubt they will do anything, they inflated the split cost and i finally got them to use the warranty charge and split that. They used "good will" as a reason.

hey Peter,

I am in the same boat as well. Rust on the bottom of three doors behind the weather strip. I am the third owner of My w210.
Is there a chance I can get the "good will"?
Please elaborate on your situation.

Thanks,

Ayman.

Ask around, it usually depends on the dealership. Sometimes they will just eat up the entire cost.

The rust around the door frame was discussed in a bulletin during the warranty period by spraying wax. I dont give you much of a chance for "good will" I had a friend who was a shop foreman who went to bat for me. I also have most of the work done there and purchased two cars there so I probably paid for it over time. MB only honors rust isues in Europe. They promised to do all four doors, but only did two.

Thank you Gentlemen. I thought I would not have a chance since the car is out of warrany and I am not the orginal owener. The rust I have is surface rust and I am glad I caought it early before it rotts the doors. I have my POR-15 kit ready and I will tackle this project tomorrow!
