Alabama-factory battery finally gave up

The ML320 is driven by our son for last few years, since we downsized to sedans when he moved out.
The battery finely started acting and he needed a jump in the morning, so he decided to bite a bullet and buy new battery. This is the 4rd major expense on the truck in its life after tries, brakes and MAF.
We picked up the truck at local dealer in September of 98.
120k miles to date, battery made in Spain.

I congradate you, my 99 must have been built before a long week end. When I was in manufacturing all the employees talked about, what they were going to do, and when the returned what they did.
My warrany repair service records should have been bound, and almost cost me the trade in value, BMW offered me a fair trade and MB matched it, they did not put it on the lot.
Having said that my 01 E wagon still has origional brakes at 90K, a couple of window regulators, AC leak, directional, not bad for 10 years. They do all my service, trans ,cooling, etc, and probably brake flush when it needs pads soon. I belive in MB batteries especially the new ones.
