Angry OMG!! I Bought A Lemon!

Hello! I'm a new kid on the block. Just pruchased a 2000 ML 320 in
Jan.2010; had the car fax pulled and put the vehicle on a machine to see if there was anything wrong. The coolant light was on but I was told "It's an EASY fix". Took it to Bennette's Motor world here in Birmngham, AL, by they way terrible mechanics, they replaced the water pump and still the coolant was leaking. Well to make a long story short I pulled the vehicle and took it to The Mercedes doctor and he tells me he's familiar with the car because he's worked on it before and knows the owner very well....... Says the owner got rid of it because it needs HEAD GASKETS!!!! OMG That's where the coolant is going. HELP ME PLEASE! I'm stuck with a lemon.... Is ther a way around this?

Sorry about your luck. You could try to sell it on craigslist...

Next time have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic for 60 bucks or whatever it costs, especially a used Mercedes..
