What you were told appears to be odd.
Who in MB told you this?
Presumably your car is in warranty.
Where are you located?
If in the region of west London you might like to consult
Mercedes-Benz Park Royal
29 - 33 Victoria Industrial Estate
London W3 6UU
Tel. 020-8896 1565
There is no showroom there and the people have been pretty good in telling
it as it is, warts and all (also about their cars). (And dealing with my
problems efficiently and economically).
Even if not in London you can still give them a ring.
