Don't loose faith in benz! These are some of the finest cars ever! Even my old car is rusting, and has had its share of problems! But I still wouldn't trade it for half of the new cars out there! Every car has problems, every company has its flawed products. Sometimes theres just a bad apple in the bunch!
Just because your fluid was gone and your transmission died doesn't mean it's a bad car! It is your fault for not filling it... anything will die if it doesn't have its required fluid!
You have a great car, I'd LOVE to have a big benz like that!
Compare old mercedes to more recent GM or chevy or ford.... The older mercedes run nicer, look better, are worth more, and they are just plain better cars. Well worth the price they were paid for! You have a fine car! Don't forget that, man!
