Getting ripped off for an oil change under the "B" Service BS for 320 Dollars. Nothing wrong with that either. ( See my other post). So at this point a Dodge or a Chrysler is not really that bad of a deal. Is it? . Come on guys this is just a car. Mercedes used to mean something may be 15 or 20 years ago. Now w/ every newbie driving one and the quality being poor, it has really lost its "Prestige". Before you flame me as to why I bought one then. It is because my wife thinks that her SLK 350 is "Cute". That's all. It keeps her happy and I can get my toys!!!
YOU BURN THAT MUCH?!?!?!? my 81 DIESEL! with 176,000 dosen't burn a drop between oil changes (every 3K).
Everyone with their electrical problems!. Well that wasnt meant to be offensive, but there is something very wrong with your car, has it had good care?
Oh, I forgot who, but someone mentioned that they get poor service when they go into a dealer with a older car. My mom had to deal with the Escondido dealer to get a new fuse box cover. The guy was an ass, acted like he knew everything and when the cover came in, it was one for a new benz. So the geek from the back came out and ordered the right one.
I dont mean to be offensive, but the ML isn't a SUV or a Benz, it isn't even made in Germany. The G class (the non-citified ones) were much superior vehicles, of course If I wanted an off road vehicle I'd get a UNIMOG.
