Mixed emotions

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


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.
