Greetings from USA
I had a 1998 C230 - which was rear-ended and totaled in 2008. Maintenance work I had done on the car included; changing out the shocks, installed a new steering knuckle and front wheel bearing, transmission-fluid, rear-axle fluid, coolant change, rear emergency brake adjustment plus other small repairs. Hopefully I can answer some repair questions and offer helpful hints.
Also own a 2002 C240 - V-6, 5-spd automatic, do regular maintenance on it, so maybe I can offer some help on this car also.
Both of my Mercedes were purchased new. As these cars have gotten older the enjoyment of the cars has increased.
I believe Mercedes will be bringing the B-class to the USA at some time so I enjoy reading ownership stories on this model.
Anyway, as I have gotten older I wish I had chosen being an auto-mechanic Mercedes-trained as an occupation.
