New Frustrated Owner
I've viewed this website several times because I recently obtained my mercedes. It's the first car that I bought on my own and I want to take care of it. I like my car because it fits me. But, after only a year I am frustrated because it's giving me problems. I joined this site in hopes of learning more about my car and to currently get help or advice.
While driving down the highway all of my warning lights came on. I got to the traffic light waiting for it to turn green, the warning lights turned off. Just before the light turned green I noticed that the car lost power. When I finally got the car back on it was making a noise . Every time I turn the car on it makes the noise. When I turned the air on the noise got louder. I'm scared to drive it b/c I don't want to make it worse. But, the car has been sitting for a month. So, today I thought I would drive it around the block, since it hasn't been driven.
When I put the car in reverse it felt like the car didn't want to go. I pulled into the street still thinking I could drive around the block. While pushing the gas to get moving, the car still felt like it didn't want to move. So, even though my mph was rising the car was not going any faster. I decided to pull back into my yard and am now lost, frustrated, and scared b/c I have a feeling I'm about to be out of money I don't have, b/c I'm not working.
I've seen many readings on the internet about this make/model having problems. If possible can anyone advise me on what it may be or what I need to do? I am a female and don't want to get taken advantage of when I take it to the shop. Any help is greatly appreciated. I apologize for not knowing what forum to post this in.
