Is this the first time you have documented this complaint?

Is there a history of this complaint made by you on previous visits before 12K elapsed?

Have you talked to the Service Manager? MBUSA?

Good news. After voicing my displeasure with my service advisor, he spoke to the service manager who then spoke to MBUSA and they approved a one time "good will" repair and replaced the front brake pads and rotors at no charge. The car feels much better now. Thanks.

Konig, I hate to bother you --- you do so much for us.

HOWEVER , LI30.30-P-057139 AUG13 – 212 & 207 with Collision Prevention Assist (258) may warn for no obvious reason,

In my MY 2011 212 P2, we frequently get a "beep beep" for no reason, no cars or any kind or obstruction nearby, no chance of police or other radar emissions. And there is absolutely no message of any kind. Disconcerting at times . . .

Is it possible that's what this notice is talking about?

Konigstiger,

Could you please translate what NAG2, OM651 / OM642 are? I have a 2013 E550 with this issue. I had the vehicle into the dealer last week, but the technician said that the latest software is installed.

NAG2 = (Neues Automatische Getriebe 2) New Automatic Gearbox 2 another name for 7-speed transmission. OM651 & 642 = diesel engines. Check your email.

Got it! Thank you. I've just noticed another anomaly with the transmission in "S" mode. The car will not start in 1st gear if it was originally started with "E" when shifted from Neutral. Shifting back to Neutral and then to Drive restores the 1st gear start. This may be all related, but not sure. I'll let the tech sort things out.

The technician made the following determinations:

The car IS starting in D1 when in "S" mode. The engagement surge that I was feeling (depressing the left paddle) is due to the transmission clutches being reengaged after running free. Also, MBUSA says that the jolt that I have been noticing is NORMAL (WAD) for engine 278 and 4Matic. The bulletin applies to MY2012 and up if the transmission software update had not been installed. The additional tip about greasing the drive shaft to address the issue apparently does not really fix the complaint, but can lessen the jolt if there was inadequate grease.

Did you get your issue with knocking noise fixed? My vehicle sounds the same and warranty will end so soon.

Heard from a fellow mercedes owner with E250CDI that there is an factory order to change the diesel injectors on W212 diesel cars.
Anybody got the bulletin I can take to my dealer?

LI32.25-P-048218: THUMPING NOISES FROM VICINITY OF REAR AXLE

I'm getting a dull thud/thump from my rear axle on my 2010 E63 AMG when going over bumps, specifically depressions such as manhole covers. I searched through this forum for service bulletins related to this particular issue but couldn't find any. I then did a web search and came across this:

LI32.25-P-048218: THUMPING NOISES FROM VICINITY OF REAR AXLE

Does anyone have any more info on this? Not even sure if it's applicable to the E63's suspension.

Thanks for any and all help.

LI32.25-P-052035 - CREAKING/SQUEAKING NOISES WHEN STEERING

Does anyone have any info on this service bulletin? I've got really bad creaking/squeaking from the steering wheel on my 2010 E63. Just had it at the dealer and they lubed the boot & shield on the steering shaft which didn't do squat especially this cold morning here in Boston.

Thanks!
