Post Hello from PA

Hello All-

I just discovered BenzWorld and after a long hiatus in Toyotas, Hondas & Acuras, I'm back in a German Diesel. Albeit it's a 2011 VW JSW TDI - but it's close.

My family has had five Benzes. an '81 300SD, an '82 300SD, an '86 560SL, an '87 300TD, and an '02 C320.

All great machines - the diesels ran into the 200,000's of miles. The TD Wagon was a tank. After a stupid accident (rear-ending a ford windstar which sustained $100 damage, the $8k repair bill on the TD forced us out for 6 years until we got the C320.

We're considering a GLK - but more on that later. I'm just happy to be on the forum and to learn from all of your expertise & experience. Glad to be here!
