Mercedes N00b

Just purchased my first Benz, a 2006 E320 CDI with 75K on the dial. So far, I love the car; as someone said, it pulls like a freight train. I plan on using this car as a daily driver. Milage so far is impressive, 27 city 37 highway, only my 06 Jetta TDI does better (+5 mpg average). Not bad for a car that weighs some 3800+ lbs!

Went to the MB dealer and had my first experience with MB parts--9 quarts of Mobil 1 M 0-W40, oil filter, fuel filter, and two clamps $180. Ouch.

Been doing lots of reading on this forum which has led me to a thorough education on the MB maintenance system and why my car does not have an oil dipstick.

The car itself was a previous victim of hail (repaired) which turned into a good deal for me. Mechanically, the car is sound but has cheap tires that will need replaced soon along with an alignment.
