More defects than I would have thought....

Now Iím on my fourth defect on my E450 cab...

1. Aux battery had a fault that lit the warning light. Apparently fixed with software?
2. Right passenger window not secured all the way and visibly moved when touched. Fixed.
3. A moaning/whining noise whenever the ABC airbags are filling.
4. Now, the passenger Air Scarf has failed. You turn it on, the lights light up. A few seconds later, the fan comes on and about 3 seconds after that, the fan cuts off and the lights turn off.

Is it me or is number of defects higher than one would expect? I know theyíll give me a loaner, but it wonít be a Cab 😩

To me, One Fault is too many issues for the price of purchasing an MB.

Did they resolve this? I think I hear this in my wagon with the rear air leveling. Faint, almost like a power steering moan. Usually shortly after starting up, like at the end of my driveway, or end of the street. Still, unacceptable for a MB. Did they correct it at all?

i havenít taken it in for this yet. It was just annoying so I didnít want to give up my car while they figured it out. Now that Iíve got to take it in for the defective air scarf, Iíll have them look at it. Iíve done a bunch of tests and Iím 99% sure it happens when the struts are inflating.

I wonder how much theyíre supposed to inflate. Iíll be sitting in C mode and Iíll hear the noise at a stop light. Why is a strut filling when I hadnít lowered then raised the car? Since the car will likely be in the stirrups Iíll ask them to do whatever test to see if the struts are holding their air properly

My wagon just has the auto leveling in the rear. So its not controlled by the operator. Do you get the same sound when you raise the car?

I'm sorry to see you've had these issues. The only thing that was an issue on my car was the driver door window came with a chip in the glass and it took a month for them to get a replacement window from Germany. It did take a month for them to get me connected to Me Connect. Our E400 has had zero issues. Hopefully, this will be the end of issues for you.
