The mechanic will have it more than you will
Where do I begin? Let's see... The A/C never blew really cold, even after it was repaired. Thank God it didn't need a complete overhaul, that would have been over $2,000.
What really killed this car was gaskets. They just dry rot.
Engine mounts $300.
Oil seal $400.
Transmission seal $500.
Head gasket $500.
Water pump $500.
That was one expensive car to keep up!
Gas mileage wasn't very good either. 18 MPG around town, and requires premium. My Toyota Avalon gives 25 around town and uses regular.
I would not buy another one, but I hear MB diesels are great cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
