C55 Amazing Power - Everything else????
By flatout7 on
2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
Nothing else can compare this this car's power. That is about where it ends for me. Within two weeks of delivery the remote access FOB features quit working and the radio was in a constant state of static and random on off behavior. A warranty trip to the dealer and the radio was fixed and they said the keyless access was fixed as well. The keyless access quit working two days later and this was followed by a HUGE transmission fluid leak in my garage and a mysterious flapping sound coming from the engine compartment. Back to the dealer again. They advised they leak in the tranny was a common problem and they could not find the mysterious noise after numerious attempts.
Power. That is it.
Build quality and reliability of this auto was a HUGE disappointment. I have returned the car to the dealer for a complete refund. I had read about the present state of Mercedes' quality control problems and now I am a believer. A new BMW is on order. I am done with the Benz's.
