While on the way to the airport in Los Angeles yesterday, I saw this W245 from the van. Hydrogen fuel cell!

It's not a timing belt; it just drives the alternator, water pump and A/C compressor.

Mine is also a 2008 and it's the original at 215,000 km. I think I will get it changed this summer.

Sounds as thought it may be an electrical problem with the EPS motor. Look around this motor for wiring problems.

213,000 km here also a manual and it is a good car, with the manual. I would expect the clutch to last 400K km. Probably the B200 is not a good choice with the CVT, given the known issues.

Check the wheel bolt tightness first. A wheel bearing failure is generally slow to develop, not sudden.

Ever since I pulled the plug and punched the hole in the under tray, my spare tire well has been bone dry. This despite the torrential rain we have had the past while. It is so dry inside that I...

Drove up to Mt Washington for a day of skiing, did a short blast up to 200 in the 120 zone. Skied all day with one daughter then drove home, washed the mud and salt off the car and that's it.

That's extremely early for a clutch. Actually I have never worn one out, despite putting over 400,000 km on some cars.
