Has Daimler acknowledged rust problems on 2000s500? Any compensation, litigation?
I am the original owner of a 2000 S500. Rust everywhere. Five to seven thousand dollars to paint it. Paint shop specializes in M-Benz, BMW etc. tells me rust will return in two years. Any thoughts or advice?
Thank you, Vince Brennan
I have not heard of any compensation or manufacturer defects on this vehicle. What is mileage? 7/70 or 6/60 are standard for perforation warranty.
148,000 miles-the rust is really bad. The car runs very well otherwise. Thanks
bring it to your dealer. supposedly they will take responsibility for this rust, so ive heard from benzworld.org
