Mercedes Concedes to Law Suit

It appears that Mercedes has agreed to extend the warranty on certain engines to 10 years and 150K miles as a result of a Class Action lawsuit alledging that Mercedes failed to tell owners they had to use synthetic oil with the FSS system prior to 2001.

Mercedes said they thought they could beat the suit but didn't want to go to the expense of fighting it.

As usual, the only ones that will gain from this suit are the lawyers ($7.5 million) since it will probably be a futile exercise trying to prove any engine damage resulted from using Dino oil.
