AMG? Yes, i think so.
Purchased a brand new C32 AMG in 02' and replaced the supercharger at 10k miles. Car was running on limp mode occasionally because intercooler pump was failing, AC vent servo went out twice at $600 per incident. Thrust bearings went out and the electric seats module was faulty and was draining the battery. Had the battery replaced twice and many days when the car just wouldn't start.
