2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Review

I wrote a review 2 1/2weeks ago.Please revise. When you accelerate from stop you can hear a ping noise coming from the transmission.Two months ago the service dept. at Orland Mercedes corrected the problem for 6 weeks. Then the noise was audible again. When the car was returned for the same ping noise, I was informed that Mercedes declared the noise will not harm anything and it is acceptable. They were aware of the ping noise that was reported to them by others. I drove a new 2004 And no noise.For these 2 reasons: a) the mechanic corrected the noise for 6 weeks and b) the noise is on "some" other S55's. There must be a major defect somewhere.
