Cool Newbee Member


I am new member here at mercedez benz forum. I have a 2005 C240 4Matic. Bought it in 2008. I am surprised to know that my car in less than 4 years has depriciated that much. Is that common with benzes? I just changed my water pump at a local shop for $570 - is that a good deal? They also told me to do a brake fluid flush (recommended every 2 years) and spark plugs (every 5 years) and fuel filter (due by time). Is this a sales call to get this done or do you actually need to perform these maintenance repairs.

Appreciate any input..
