However, they are not hard to work on. Regular maintenance items are easy to do and parts are not too expensive through internet vendors like Fastlane.
You will find, MB shops/dealerships will charge from around $50 to over $100 per hour. If you DIY guess who is making that money? Sometimes you have NO choice.
Regular maintenance can be done by DIY'ers on a MB just like any other car but, KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS!
If you going to keep your car for a while, I suggest you buy the MB CD manuals.
