Went out this morning and found this message:

“Malfunction visit Workshop” with two sprockets.

So far they’ve told me that they found “codes”

*sigh*

The car started and drove...

More to come.

KazeGo,

Read the posts on this message. Given your reports of iffy maintenance by prior owner, you need to be sure that all software upgrades were done. Worse than message is if the vehicle stops while in motion as a result of a software that has not been updated.

Inform the dealer of what you learned so they can ask specific questions to MBUSA. Again, given your reports of dealer, they will be clueless first go round.

Well, got a call from the dealer. They said that the car will need an “electronic drive motor” which has to come from Germany. 3 to 4 weeks. I’m not sure what that is. Have anyone else have one replaced?

I want to thank you guys for educating me on this car.

KazeGo,

That was fast. Bad news is you bought one that was not taken care of. Good news is you get a new motor. Check out extensive posts on this topic. It will end well but will take time to get part before you get car back.

Many times this message goes away at the next power up. I had this message also but it has not reoccurred. You could be an unlucky one but that is why the car has a warranty.
