Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello,I must say that this is possible, but some of the issues would have symptoms. Tensioner would cause whistling from the engine, bushing- loose feel in the suspension. The tires become loose their elastic properties after 5 years.
But i would suggest to have the car checked at independent MB workshop and get a quote from them for the repairs. Even if they confirm the same faults, their quote can be half of what the dealer is asking.
