Just got the car back from an independent shop. After a night in the shop and $119, the C280 is on the road again. The car is a 94 with about 64K miles on the clock. I worried if it's an accessory stocked that caused the belt to break however it's not the case. The charge breaks down into $80 labor and $36 belt plus tax if that matters. Thanks.
