For those of us (count me as one) who agonized over choosing a IS-F over a C63 AMG with its throaty exhaust and push you in the seat torque, here is absolution. Looks like this happened a while back and MB is doing all they can to downplay it but there is a class action lawsuit against MB for faulty AMG V8 engines. Many owners of C63, E63 and SL63 experienced engine failure due to premature camshaft wear, and coolant leaking into the cylinders. MB owner forums said that some owners had up to 4 engine rebuilds but the same problems came back, and this is still seen in 2011 models which means MB knows the problems but has not done anything to remedy it. Very typical MB attitude.

A drama free motoring experience is what most Lexus owners value and looks like it remains a good reason to choose the IS-F!
