I am a ex-Mercedes Benz Collision Repair Technician. Originally from Germany. Have owned multiple European Vehicles. Have tried American models and Show great disappointment in these Cars (Ford,Chevy,Dodge). I purchased my White 1994 Mercedes E420 used in 1998 with 30,000 miles. The odometer currently reads 238,879 miles. I try to keep the car maintained as much as possible and will attempt any repair as far as my knowledge allows. Most recent issues where the strip fuse holder melting and shorting out part of my A/C system. The Cabin Filters where clogged and the Blower motor was Seizing with age. The Transmission was replaced at 208,000 miles. Have replaced multiple other items from normal wear and tear (Door Check Strap,Control Arm Bushings...etc..). Hey, You know, Nothing Lasts forever. I Love My car and would like nothing better than to hit 1 Million miles with it. Not Crazy Have seen it with several other Mercedes. These cars are like the Energizer Bunny, They just keep going and going and going! Proper maintenance. P.S. I do drive the car like a German.....
