New to Site

Hello...
Just found this site while sitting at my dealer's waiting for service.
Great site so far...wish I had found it sooner.

I bought my first Mercedes from a family friend....a 1982 300TD...beautiful..anthrocite gray w/ black leather, that classic chrome grill... Other than normal issues with an older car...it was a good one. I drove it for
15 years...my brother-in-law still has it...190K+miles and still going. ( 'course, he rebuilds cars and can work on it himself). Back in 2003, I bought a 2003 C230 Kompressor..new! I like the car, but have had things go wrong in the first couple of years that shouldn't on a new car..esp. a mercedes. Now, I am having issues with it that seem to be a recurring problem with Mercedes. Guess I am getting to that "keep and repair or sell/trade" point.
I appreciate the reviews and input from others who are much more knowledgeable than I. I look forward to educating myself more.
