Starter Motor in A class

I bought a Mercedes thinking it was a "Quality" car. How wrong could I be. I have now seen the MB A Class described as "the worst small car ever built" and I am beginning to understand why. My car was just right for me to use travelling all over the country and I have done some Kilometres but niow at a cost. The starter had problems that were to be the starter and the ring gear.
Six week ago I gave up the car to be repaired. After two weeks I gave nearly AUS$5000.00 to the experts after they had replaced the starter and ring gear. I drove the car away and within 5 Kilometres it lost power and went into "Limp" mode!!!!!!

It has taken the MB experts four weeks to solve that problem and now I have my car back, I find they have lost the radio code and want to charge me some more money to recode the radio.

I am almost terrified to drive the car any distance now in case something else goes wrong and I have to take out a bank loan to get it fixed.

I thought that perhaps by joining Benzworld, I might find enough to convice me that the car is not so bad after all.
