I bought Mercedes Benz E220d 2016 on 2018 from Mercedes dealer, now I discovered that Two of the alloys are cracked. Can I claim the repair or replacement cost from the dealer?

Hello and welcome,

If you've just bought it you can ask the dealer and see what they say.

I'll take a stab in the dark and say you have 18" wheels with low profile tyres, and have speed hump cushions to travel over along with some badly maintained roads.

Straddling speed humps puts enormous pressure on the unsupported inside edge of the wheels which causes them to crack. Huge alloys have unfortunately no place on the roads we "enjoy" in this country :(
