Re: Is There Such Thing As A Life Expectancy for Mercedes engines?


It really depends on many factors. But somewhere between 200-300k miles between rebuilds seems about right. A rebuild costs about $2000 so most people scrap the car when it needs one.

But if you take care of your car....and change the oil regularly and service the transmission and rear end at the factory intervals and change your timing chain/rails, etc every 100K miles your car should last at least 350K miles and probably many more. The drive trains on all MBs are built tough. Most of the service problems on late model cars are will all the toys (AC/alarms/remote controls/climate controls,emission equipment/etc.)

Gas engines last over 300k miles, diesels last over 400k miles. P.
