    My used E250 W212 has done only 14,000 miles and I have had it less than a month. When going over large road calming humps at only 5mph there is a load squishing noise from the front suspension. This happens as the car comes down the other side and is most disconcerting.

    Is this normal?

    I do not think that we have many of these cars on the forum, have you asked MB about it

    All the time...or just after hedgehog has passed in front of you?;)

    What suspension does this car have, springs or air?

    I wouldn't be overly concerned about this, many cars do it.

    Probably the front shocks, as the oil passes through their valves on rebound it does make some noise, my 124 does it slightly, audible with the window open. Squishing is a nice fitting description.
