Ok my name is Tony, college student from L.A. I had my used CLK 430 for about 10 mos. This site is so helpful thank you ahead of time. I havent posted anything but learned a lot from reading the forums. My car has been great, until recently cause I am stuck in limp home mode. So far as preventive maintenance I have replaced myself DIY, spark plugs, air filters, motor and trans mounts, brakes, fuel filter, and steering damper. So if anybody has any questions, msg me if possible. Ok now gonna do my first post if I can find how and try to add an avatar.
