Again, thanks everyone for such a complete discussion...I'm dropping my car off tomorrow...as I now reveal my complete ignorance:
What specifically do I ask the shop to do, without openning myself up to an enormous "search and destroy" bill?
Again, the car is an '87 560SL with 101,000 miles...and is there a relatively easy diagnosis for the cruise control? Or should I save that one for when the budget is a little less vulnerable?
A tip of the cap to all you professionals who contribute here....
