If a car is no lemon, maintenance is sweet and driving a pleasure. An abstract of parts price is not representative of the cost per mile ridden. On the other hand, it is only natural that a more complex, better made car would be more involved to maintain and fix. For instance, you don't need multiple bobbins in a single bobbin starting system; or you don't need 9 quarts of oil in a small 4-cylinder engine.
So, we bought Mercedes... we all know it implies the acceptance of a snobbish extra cost for an artificially endowed status symbol, all bs created by the MB Madison Ave Agency. They gave it to us all the moment we signed on the car purchase so, enjoy and rejoice.
A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.
Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
