Anyone else having 4Matic problems? When I turn the steering wheel sharply out of the garage I get a vibration in the rear end? MB said it was the AWD transaxle and replaced it at 30K miles. Now 60K it seems to be happening again but I am out of warrenty. Is this my tough luck or should I expect MB to repair?
#32 of 40 Windshield Wiper Insert Replacement

Hi, Have a '06 350E 4M and purchased replacement wipers - got the insert part, not the entire wiper. Anyhow, there are retainers on the end of the OEM wiper assembly that I can't figure out how to remove, so I can slide the old insert out, and new in. Anybody mess with these out there?

#34 of 40 stress crack?

I have an 06 E350 43k on it
I noticed a small crack on the windshield, about where the rain sensor goes.
Doesnt appear to have been cracked by any flying road debris.
Could it be a stress crack?

Windshields will occasionally crack due to errors in the manufacturing process. Believe it or not, glass is a liquid and now and then during the "pouring" there are impurities trapped in there which might eventually lead to a crack, a shattering, or who knows.
A close inspection with a jeweler's "eye" should be able to tell you if there was impact or not.

Just bought a 2009 3 350 and the nav unit keeps shutting down without a reason and the transmission shifts down to 2nd gear ! Have had it in the shop and they can not find the problem. Did you resolve your problem?

Just bought my Mercedes about six weeks ago. Have had repetitive problems with the tele-navigation system shutting down and rebooting at least 25 times. The dealor can find no problem after 5 visits. More serious is the car shifts into 2nd gear and stays there... have to stop car and restart to get it out of second. Dealor can not find out why this happens. Google search brings up similar cases for nav unit shutting down going back 3-4 years. It sounds like a major flaw in on board computer. I have contacted a lemon law lawyer and wna t to get rid of the car!! Anyone have similar problem with this model??

Thinking about getting a 2010 E350 luxury sedan.
Biggest worries are (1) reliability and (2) cost of maintenance. Any input on these would be appreciated.
Realize that each dealer sets own prices, but what is realistic for the MB Owners Manual recommended services for first 2-3 years?
