Not inexpensive, but worth it so far.
Originally I had lost coolant and my independent mechanic charged the system and loaded it with the dye. I noticed that it wasnít cooling again, but the independent mechanic told me the pressure was OK and he couldnít find a leak. The fathers that started the shop are very good mechanics, but maybe their sons that are taking over the business are not quite as good. I donít know why they couldnít find the problem. They told me to bring it back again, but I just gave up with them and went to the dealer. It is cold for now and I am just hoping that I donít have additional problems in the near future. I love this car and I hope it doesnít turn into a money pit. Maybe it really does cost more to drive a Mercedes, but so far it seems worth it. :p
I just couldn't give up on my 1995 E320.
I think it might be like always going back to that same bad relationship with an ex girlfriend.
You feel you love them too much, or you are just too stupid to know any better.
