- Good power, smooth ride.
- If you are a working Joe, better know how to DIY on oil and plugs.
Purchased As Used
I had mine for about a year, one owner always serviced on time. The only problem was the antenna which I had fixed about $80. The check engine light goes on and off, I was told it may be the cam sensor or because I need brakes. I had them estimate the brake job, front and rear $880, yes almost $900 for brakes at the Benz shop in our town. Of course I will be doing it myself, I asked if they were dipped in gold. If you are a working guy like me and just want a decent ride you better know how to change the oil, plugs, filter, flush the system and other minor maintenace because they will get you. Never take your car to Zeke the corner gas pumper to work on it if it does need work. And know the cars maintenance history before you buy if possible. Change the fluids on time and any car should last, my old girlfriend had me do her car when we first met, I asked when it was done last and she said never. Five years with no oil change or plugs. The old plugs had nothing left from gap to threads, don't know how she drove it so long like that. But check your service history B4 you buy!!! If you find a Benz like I did that was well maintained it will last, but so should any car.
