Well....

I'd avoid the diamond in the rough, Shane
and if your fever was this high, you'd be heading to the ER
this many inches in a yard is no good
Stay away from this Palace / House of Parliament
Rhymes with PestSinister

I've had great work from Linden and Littleton, by the way.

forgive the riddles, as I have the stinkin' flu and a bit loopy.

Suggesting that one has to know you adversary's order of battle and carefully choose the terrain on which you wish to fight. IMHO, you are not on "good ground" and lack the resources, tactical & strategic advantages to win your case despite being on the side of the angels. It will be a battle of attrition. The 1000 pound gorilla almost always wins.....

Dennis references Jarndice at. al. & Dickens as a teaching point. Good reference but I'd say you may wish to consider the lessons of the Battle of the Greasy Grass or, maybe, Dien Bien Phu .....

Some days it is better to slink silently away and count one's blessings....

Well spoken.

Or the short version: Is this the hill you want to die on?

Such BS from these MB dealers, sometimes.
No, it's not BS.

The purpose of a warranty is not to immunize the owner against all possible adverse experiences in vehicle ownership.

The purpose of a warranty is to give the manufacturer the opportunity to correct manufacturing defects within a specified period.

If a failure is not a manufacturing defect, then it's not a warrantable concern, regardless of the miles or months.
