new 2004 c230k coupe. drivers seat had slight rocking motion forward and back from the day of purchase. notified dealer - said was normal. rocking motion got worse and again notified dealer at 5000 miles on odometer. dealer said seat adjuster was coming loose from seat frame, apparently the bolts had "wallowed out" in the holes and the two pieces could have come apart from each other. my worry was that in the event of an accident it could have separated and a serious injury or death could have occured since the part i was sitting in was no longer attached to the frame of the car...seatbelts, airbags, etc would have been totally useless. dealer ordered new seat adjuster and attached it to seat frame.*mr

i own a 2003 clk320 coupe. yesterday, i took my car into fresno mercedes and was very disappointed with my treatment. the upper driver's seat is coming apart and the service manager said it was a defect. things changed when they realized the warranty had recently expired and the extended warranty did not cover the defect. it suddenly became a "gotcha" situation and unpleasant. i understand warranty expiration, but do not understand rude attitude. i was not even give the number of who mercedes uses to repair "defects" there are two mercedes in this household and bmw is looking better all of the time. *jb
