Some of the problems that Mercedes Benzes are known for are suspension and steering, with seemingly fragile ball joints and control arm bushings; and the valve body and 13-pin connector in the transmission often failing.
Window regulators are a common problem on cars, but they tend to fail more on Mercedes C-class models than others. Also, Mercedes engine mounts are oil-filled, and once mileage piles up, they start to lose the oil.
Catalytic converter problems and rust are other common Mercedes repairs.
Before speaking to an Expert, be ready to explain your issue in detail, and have the model, year and VIN on hand. You’ll also be asked what you or your mechanic have already tried to do to effect your Mercedes repair.
