1984 300SD .... Problems and I need help.
[:(] Sadly, Buttercup (yes I named my car) seems to have a list of never ending problems. Currently, my biggest problem is the beading in the tires and the over wearing of tires which were in the front but have been rotated to the rear.
Also, my seat- is posessed. It moves on its own and despite the grand efforts (multiple visits) the mechanics cannot seem to figure it out. So, the solution appears to be disconnecting the seat.
Now, the thing is, I'm a student, I'm a girl, and I cannot express to my father that I really wanted soemthing that wasn't going to break down on the roadside leaving me stranded. Yes, it's a great car, yes, it's wonderful on the highways and such, but, I drive in town. Where my "tank" is less than agile and rather frustrating as it shakes at stoplights and other odd behaviors.
The real question: is it worth it? There seem to be endless repairs needing to be made and I know that the moment I'm left to pay for the car- I will never be able to afford it! How can I approach this with my family? Because I brought it up, but I don't think anyone sees how much it may be to make this car run! We've already delt with many issues- and after a while, I'm not so sure....
