We should stay in touch as these cars age.
I did buy the the 7 yr warranty at the time of purchase but have not needed it.
My dealer here is very attentive to service bulletins, etc. and has been terrific.
M-B has dealer funds for good will and may offer a buy out your car or contribute to a better trade-in allowance.
Cannot hurt to ask.

I have a 2002 S430 that was purchased in August 2008 with 67528 miles and I have rust on three of the four doors. I took it to the Mercedes dealer where they looked up my Vin # and told me that this car had been recalled to have the doors re sealed in 2005. At this point I can only take there word for it. However, if it had been recalled and the doors re sealed and I am still experiencing rust should Mercedes be responsible for the workmanship and make it right. This is quite a sight seeing this car being driven around with rust on the doors. I am looking at $2200 to have this repaired. One body shop told me that they heard of the doors being replaced by MB.
