    Corrosion is the issue

    Good to know - thanks. I nearly went to look at one in a dealer a few weeks ago, but left it sit to see if it'd still be there after Christmas. I'm in no rush.
    Not one buying guide I read mentioned that on the 212! And I read 4-5 buyer's guides online. I suppose owners forums are ultimately the font of knowledge required, but they can often be plagued with an over abundance of bad news and horror stories which skew things.

    This is the second E-class I've had this year. Both have had the rear subframe replaced.

    I have a towbar so the impact was transmitted directly to the chassis.

    Let's see how it goes?

    I've decided to go through my Insurance broker. The incident will be properly recorded and properly processed.

    Now they certainly can. Very good times over there at present, as with any country sitting on hydrocarbons.

    But not so good for the consumers.
