Hello From Scott, a new Member
I just joined. I have a 2005 C240, silver. It has been very reliable except for a few electronic ignition issues that the dealer fixed in warranty. It just went out of warranty, but I bought an extended warranty to 125K. I joined because I wanted to see how difficult it was to change the oil (I probably won't do it myself anyway), to change the headlamp (found that fine) and to find aftermarket items etc. I searched for changing the oil and found a lot of posts that said that there were a lot of posts about how to do it, but after an hour of searching, I couldn't find one that actually showed how to do it on that car, they just said don't ask, search, but the search seemed to mainly find the ones that said to search and not ask, or a few on totally other models, so it is probably buried deep in one of the archives, but I finally gave up. It seems to be a question asked more than answered. So, that first experience was not so positive. It would be nice if people point to one the posts about which that say are there, rather than just say, "find it stupid," as it is not always so easy to find some items with the search provided.
Nevertheless in all other ways it seems to be a really great site with lots of great information. It seems that information with more unique keywords if far easier to find if it is here.
I plan to visit often. I'm glad this resource exists.
Thanks to the moderators and the active members.
