2005 C230K battery change; DIY or pay??
I had my car in for B-service today and was told that the battery failed the test and needed to be replaced. Naturally I declined assuming that I could find a good battery somewhere and do it myself but the more I read the more I question that idea.
Is it worth the savings (I was quoted $194 installed at MB, and I figure it will cost at least $110 for a good battery at autozone, etc.) to track one of these down and do it myself, or is it enough of a waste of time and hassle to just call roadside assistance? BTW, does roadside assistance a warranty thing or a MB ownership thing (I'm out of warranty).
