Maybe I made a mistake
I bought a slightly used E300. It has a lot of extra features. I bought it because it was on the lot, low miles and I thought a good price. After I got the car, I noticed a dent in the center of the steering wheel. Where you would beep the horn. I asked the dealer if they would replace it and they said yes. When I brought the car back, I asked if they could fix some things under warranty. There was a big list. Turns out the part came in wrong so, I had to go back. They fixed about half of the requested items and told me that I didn't know how to work the car for the rest. At the time, it could have been true.
About 2 or 3 weeks later, I brought the car back. Now I do know how to work the car. Same list. They replaced cables and I don't know what else. When I picked up the car, everything was fixed. The next day a bunch was broken again.
Now I'm wondering if the problems will ever go away. Mostly electrical. I get parking warning all the time and warnings that I'm going to hit someone. I have a rattle in the dash. The windshield wipers shutter. In the morning when I get in the car, settings are changed. Sometimes the easy entry doesn't go back to the driving position. Sometimes the auto high beams don't work and then they'll start again.
I think there is a bare wire or water got in or maybe just a loose cable.
I traded in a perfectly good paid off E 350 which I should have kept or maybe a BMW?
