Interesting indeed. Never heard of any troubles with AMG's 6.2L V8 engine. Has any engine actually failed as a result?

It's interesting because I'm part of multiple forums and I haven't seen anyone complaining about them. The C63 is still an amazing vehicle. Needs some fine tuning so it can handle the power it has. Goes to show why that S65 keeps winning awards year after year.

Same. For reliability, I'd take the M156 over the N54 any day of the week (although that's not saying much). It's a damn solid motor and there's 2 in my family with a combined 140,000 miles to attest to that.

Why does that needs a lawsuit? Just replace defective engines or defective parts in a massive recall.
