History
Original owner, southern California car with 167,000 miles; perfectly maintained and in virtual showroom condition -- mechanically and electrically, the car is a 10-out-of-10! Interior is about 8-out-of-10. I replaced the front tires with OEM 205/55ZR16 Michelin Pilot Sports (NO2 filled), replaced the front and rear brakes pads and rotors, did a 4-wheel alignment, replaced the brake light switch at 165,000 and replaced the windscreen washer fluid tank plug at the same time; where the headlamp washer jet pump is to be located, had my car been so equipped, there is a rubber plug, diameter of a quarter. It must've dried out and shrunk by just enough millimeters that it no longer sealed against the plastic tank; windex would just drain out the bottom of the tank within six hours of filling it. I went to W.I. Simonson in Santa Monica to buy a replacement plug, which I figured would be around $6-$10. Well, it turned out that although the computer said they had one in stock, it wasn't back there, so the parts counter guy went out into the shop area and bummed one off the PDI/Lot boy and just gave it to me. No charge. I walked out to the lot, popped my hood and put the new plug in, and presto! Problem solved. Other than that and replacing the windscreen wiper blade and the passenger side headlamp, this car has been a dream to own -- still running 100% perfect. June 2018 she is scheduled with Ken at Westside Mercedes-Benz Service to have the following items addressed, for preventative measures:

1. Drive belt, replace
2. Transmission filter, new and drain/re-fill
3. Fuel filters, replace (x2)
4. Engine Air filter, replace
5. Micron cabin air filter, replace
