It's about time I joined.

I've been lucky enough to have your site to reference for my problems on my dad's ML430. So many threads have saved me from expensive repairs with DIY diagnosis and service suggestions.

I loved the ML430, and was the primary driver. So when it came time to start commuting to college, I looked to another mercedes for a lower cost of ownership. I found a private seller with a 240D with 87,000 miles. Snapped it up for $1900. Mechanically, it's like new, with the exception of a rear control arm that broke in the first week(damned rust belt). Electrically, it has some gremlins to be worked out, but it isn't bad. Once I get those worked out, it will be a solid car.
