MY 2003 SL 500 WITH 22,500 MILES IS DANGEROUSLY UNSTEADY AND PULLS TO THE RIGHT ALSO HAS A KNOCK IN THE RIGHT REAR. I TOOK IT TO THE LOCAL DEALER AND THEY REPLACED THE FLUID IN THE ABC SYSTEM FOR $300 +. IT DID NOT HELP. THEY SAY THAT THEY CAN BEGIN REPLACING PARTS IN EACH WHEEL AT $2000 PER WHEEL AND SEE IF IT WORKS, BUT NO GUARANTEE. IT APPEARS THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE. I HAVE CONTACTED MERCEDES HELP LINE BUT THEY JUST SAID TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER. I BOUGHT THIS CAR NEW IN 2003 FOR MY WIFE AND EXPECTED IT TO LAST A LONG TIME AND SHE WILL NOT DRIVE IT ANYMORE. HERE I HAVE $100,000 CAR THAT IS LIKE NEW INSIDE AND OUT THAT IS NOT DRIVABLE. MERCEDES SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES FOR NOT BACKING UP THEIR PRODUCT. I HAVE HAD 9 MERCEDES STARTING WITH A 1962 DIESEL SEDAN BUT I WILL NEVER, EVER BUY ANOTHER AND I SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERYONE I SEE INTERESTED IN BUYING AN EXPENSIVE CAR.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
