The 'Sway Bar Rods' go regularly. Fortunately, they go within a year so are covered under parts warranty.
Fender liner fell off, CV boots replaced, heater door motor broke, signal switch broke, rear speakers rattled, driver's seat belt squeaked, rear set belts lock up at -25C, passenger seat bottom loose, rear door lock knobs come loose and the rod drops inside, headlight bulbs are $180 each!. Nothing serious mechanically though. Bit it is starting to rust at the same place on all 4 of the doors.
Bose stereo is fantastic!
Power and handling are great! Lots of great accessories make it a good experience every day.
Constantly breaking 'sway bar rods' is terrible.
Each door is starting to rust in exactly the same spot" bottom rear corner, about 1" in from edge.
A car this age with 114,000 kms should have NO rust - especially the way I keep it meticulously clean.
Mainly because of the rust, I have to replace it now while I can. So it's a Lexus GS300 AWD. No more problems, but I will sadly miss the performance and bling of the Benz.
