95 E320 Wagon: A little growl in reverse ....

Today I noticed a little growl in reverse gear backing out of the drive.

Do all the 94-95 E320s do this?

When mine did that, the muffler fell off 3 weeks later. Check your muffler.

My wagon niether hisses nor growels. You may be looking at aggressivenes, in which case obedience school may be worth a look.

When I first got my wagon it jumped out of reverse backing up my driveway,,, about 50 yards. I quit doing that for about 3 months and started backing up in small increments going farther each time. Now it works fine. The obedience school may not be too bad an idea.

I would very much like to send it to obedience school, maybe the Teutonic Mechanical Institute for Misbehaving Automobiles.

... but does this sound indicate a problem? The 300E never has done this. Is it common with the later 124s?
