W210 10 year/150000 miles warranty

I just received the letter from MBUSA about the class action on the use of conventional oil vs syntheitc oil. MBUSA will provide 10 years/150000 miles warranty of any oil sludging or related engine damage in the car. The model year 1998 - 2001 are included in this settlement. Also 1998 and 1999 owners will receive a $35 dollars coupon for FSS A or B service.

I guess my engine is in good shape because I switched to Mobil 1 after the first 5000 miles. According to the terms of the warranty, I probably will never have a chance to claim it.

And even if you were to have engine problems prior to 150K-miles (which is unlikely given that you switched to Mobil 1) you'd have to prove to MB that it was sludge related, and this is probably impossible.

Sounds like MB will be paying $35 per owner, but I doubt that they will ever pay out a plug nickel on that warranty.
