I have to warn anyone who might view this that I'm a terrible speller, so sorry in advance.
I have owned my sl320 (1996/uk version) for quite a few years, previously owned by my old boss. He put about 35K on the clock, I've accounted for the difference up to the current 91K. Its been fairly well looked after although when I've been skint I've done servicing through a local garage. It's list of current faults (the first two of which I've been living with for for some years), are:
A/C doesnt 'do' cold./seat belt warning bleep goes off intermittently and always when you set off./
More importantly: need a new driver side rear spring (currently broken).
If and when you really stick your foot down, the car splutters/refuses to change gear and generally protests. Ive been living with this for some time now but recently its got more frequent and does it a low revs/going slow as well. Usually stopping and turning off/removing key and re-starting, does the trick.
Anyway, thats chiefly why I'm here as this really needs to be sorted and the local Merc dealer seems as perplexed as me.
Thanks for your time
