My Mercedes SAVED MY LIFE!
The car had trouble with the heater. It would only come on if I said a special prayer or whacked the dashboard.
It leaked oil like the Exxon Valdez.
I had to replace the motor mounts.
Okay, my Mercedes sounded like a truck and smelled like a semi, but I LOVED THIS CAR! My kids always joked that it was a piece of junk and they hated to drive it because it was so heavy.
What I learned is heavy metal is where it's at. October first, I was hit by a drunk in an SUV going 70mph. She hit my back and then she hit me again driver's side. My heavy metal ate up her front end. Although I have spinal injuries, had I been in any other car, I could have been dead.
When it was time to get a replacement vehicle everyone said get a Japanese car. I am the proud owner of a 1979 Mercedes 300 Diesel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
