W221 S320 Cdi Engine

Hii everyone !

I bought a used S320 Cdi W221 (a 2008 cost me around USD $ 1,00,000 3 months ago from a independant here in Delhi, India. The car had driven around 50,000 had two owners, was serviced by the local M-B a few months before at 46K Kms.

delivery, driving at 80-90 for around 100 kms from Delhi, th engine just cut. No light, no error codes, no overheating, no coolant/oil loss..Nothing.

Checked engine comp, find anything visually Got th car put on a flatbed took it to th authorized M-B (Patel Auto) in Gurgaon. was engine seizure! Gave me a of around USD $30-35,000 to repair. the M-B dealers here a rip-off par excellance, I decide to got to a friend’s nearbym get th car repaired.

Since had seized, got th block removed, th crank, put in new sleeves pistons,con main end bearings, oil pump,filters, new oil. the works..all original M-B from Germany.

Started kept the car on Idle for hours, checked all sys, no leakages, or error codes. to drive to my family home 1300 kms away for a weekend

Completed around 1300 kms ,car ran fine, only 2 in th car, no a/c used,no luggage/towing , around 100 km/hr only.

day, we go into town, 15 mins or so, at 110 km/hr. Kaput. dies. exactly th same way as it did Unbelievable. Same engine first time in Delhi the wud crank/turn. this time it seems seized solid..we are th engine here again, kno in a day or so what exactly has happened

For a reputed 125 year old co like M-B to a vehicle like th S320 which costs upwards of US$ here in India, n have a luxury car which has been only 50,000 kms have engine failures at such a low short notice, is frankly on M-B’s reputation beyond my ken to

I have owned a Mercedes 1986 ( a W124) thereafter W203, one W210, two W211, all th 124 gave me recurring costly inspite of all th horror stories Merc’s quality the problems I had earlier, I finally saved to buy what I thought was one of the best in th world..

Now kinda at my wits end here, 3 of getting th car ready, financially it is crippling (as I am sure many M-B owners have painfully to be saddled with such cost ( $135,000 down n ) for vehicle that u shud never have repair!

If can help, in giving their as to what might be going I would truly much it..

Thank you.
