You took it to the dealer? Does that mean it started? If it did, I can't imagine how your starter motor is declared DOA. I would be suspicious. Is it a Benz dealer? Ask to see the part they replaced. Ask what part of the starter failed, the motor or the solenoid. Ask questions Michael..I could be wrong, but I don't think it's the starter. I need to shut up now..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
