No, not normal...pretty bad IMO. This is two recalls for me...and nearly had the infamous piston wrist pin issues that some have had...they have to remove the engine to replace them. I love my van, but I'm not impressed with MB quality.I just checked my VIN and it looks like I will also be getting this recall. Interesting...this is the 3rd major recall in 2 years for my 2017 Metris Worker. First was seat belts, then Transmission and now gas leaking hose. Is this considered normal and acceptable? Its my first new car
I don't have the details anymore, it primarily affected things are the car side. But they received some undersized wrist pins. They were replacing them as needed. I ran my engine serial numbers and it was outside the group.Not familiar with this. Could you expound a bit?
There was a recall About two years ago for a gasoline connection that failed. Mine failed during a really cold morning. The liner that is under the whole bottom got soaked so it took a while to get a replacement.We first noticed a gasoline smell in the middle of the night when camping in British Columbia last summer.
A month later we noticed the smell again.
Now it happens once or twice a week. Sometimes shortly after we turn off the engine. Sometimes 12-18 hours after we turned off the engine. Mostly we smell it outside the van, near the gas tank filler or near the front of the van, though sometimes we smell it inside the van.
The dealer can't figure it out. They find no evidence of a leak. No message on the computer. They say it would smell all the time if we had managed to get gas into the charcoal ventilation canister.
