    Update - I picked up my check from the dealership a few days ago. MB provided payment reimbursement for all 4 months of payments I have made. Everything has been good with the car since getting it back (knock on wood - knock on wood a million times). Keeping my fingers crossed but if it throws the check engine light one more time then that's it - it gets lemoned. I made sure that when I agreed to take the compensation and when I signed for it from the cashier I wasn't signing something that limited my ability to eventually lemon it if need be. Actually, the note on the check stub says "Customer inconvenience/customer loyalty", which is pretty cool. MB was great this entire time. Kudos to them. Throughout this process I've done quite a bit of research and I've come across a lot of instances where the company did NOT do the right thing - companies like Ferrari, Lexus, Bentley, etc. So, at the end of the day, I've got to give it to MB. Having owned an S63, G63, GL63 and now S65 I will certainly remain brand loyal.

    If it makes you feel any better, I bought a new BMW 3 years ago, it spent first 2.5 weeks at the garage waiting for parts from Germany because of some electrical failure. Two months later, the car wouldn't start because of a fuel injection problem, spent 3 weeks waiting for parts (they misread the situation and ordered wrong parts first time). It's a matter of luck, a friend of mine bought the exact same car just couple of months earlier and had 0 problems until now. You should ask for comencation, I got 3 free oil & brake changes.

    Geez. Seriously--At some point you have to circumvent inept, asshole dealerships because many of them LIE and/or exaggerate the truth. I just replaced both my suspension airbags and the suspension compressor, which came straight from Germany, in my BMW X5 for around $800. All the parts came in 4 days, and it took me a total of 3 hours to knock this out. If I had gone the Dealership route I would have been out between 5 to $8,000 and in their garage for 2 months. Even if you don't have the mechanical capacity you can shop the internet and get the parts you need in less than half the time it takes for these dealerships to get their parts.

    Apparently, in your blind arrogance compounded by your obnoxious insolence, you haven't read how many times I've already interacted in this thread.

    Congratulations on the outcome of your ordeal with Mercedes. I've been down this road twice with a then brand new 2002 BMW 745i (E65) and a 2012 Jeep Unlimited. I got rid of both of them and refused to ever touch either model ever again. You've made one small step for new purchase owners and one giant leap for current/former mechanics like me. I've been burned twice and I'll never buy another brand new car again and I'll never buy a Mercedes as I've said before. But there are a lot of high end used cars out there in circulation that people let go of because they were either tired of running through the paces with a warranty or they were trying to dump the car before the warranty ran out. At any rate, if you had given it up your car could have been one of many guinea pigs out there that got an extensive run through before being re-released as a world class 'pre-owned' vehicle with a 'clean history'.
