What Have I Done

Hi I.m Jon,
I joined Benzworld today after buying my fist Merc 2 weeks ago. I traded in my X Type XS LE for this B 200 Turbo. I have owned many vehicles over the years I'll list some of the more interesting ones VW Sirocco, Mk 1 Escort Mexico, Mini Cooper S, Ford Sierra XR4I, Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI, Land Rover Freelander GS and the Jag. To date this could go down as my worst purchase. Issues so far after 1 weeks motoring: - fuel pump failed, engine misfiring fuel injectors failed, rear parking sensors have just failed & today the horn packed in. Because I have spent nearly 40 years in the motor industry (Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover) I can normally spot a dodgy vehicle a mile away, I even plugged in my Autel 705 scan tool before purchase to see if anything was amiss with the B200. Anyhow I’ve had the fuel pump & injectors replaced under aftermarket warranty & dealers contribution the bill was £790.98. But that’s enough of my issues I’m going to stick with the Merc and work through the issues with the help of this forum. I hope my next post will be on a brighter note.
