I agree, I just can't see how this helps most of us. Most of us are over either 80K or 125K. My car is a 2006 E350 but it has 137,000 miles.

replacement engine found

Would a 2007 E350 engine be a direct swap for a 2006 E350? I have found a used E350 and if it's not in the affected range I figure I might have better luck taking this route.

Thanks,

BC
