I have 3 cars which are not Mercedeses (although I wish they were ) )

In order of appearance:

Toyota Corolla DX;

Dodge Stealth;

Dodge Caravan.

I won't bother you with pictures.

One of my cousins has a Voyager, it's a PITA to work on. It took half an hour to figure out how to put the air filter in the damn thing.

It's got 160K, I took the engine out around 120K and replaced the heads. One bank was shot, it had a crack as big as the one on my ass.
After I "fixed" it it still gives me problems and the check engine light keeps comming back even after replacing the O2 sensor (That's what it was complaining about and that's what it is still complaining about).
I replaced the belt tensioner like every year. Water leaks into the cabin from the door handles on the sliding doors.
Today all electricals shut down while my wife was driving it.
The only good thing about it is its size and hauling capacity. I use it in lieu of a dump truck and whenever the dog wants to go for a ride. My wife uses it to drop and pick the kids from school. well not anymore until I find out what the electrical problem is whenever I have time and I am not annoying you on the forum.

120/160k is pretty good for a 6 banger.

It's in my sig.

We also have a Subaru Forester.

My little one tells me one day she will buy me a rainbow colored three-pointed star car because she knows I miss my Mercedes.

E63AMG Wagon would be both practical and fun. I shall leave the brochure by her bedside.
