This is my point. I have friends that have really old cars like fords and toyotas. What they do is truly maintenance ie oil change etc and rarely have a part break.. When it does its very inexpensive to fix. They're spending alot more time on the road than I am. Even when my car IS running, I dont hold my head up high, cause Im waiting for the other shoe to fall. I actually feel mostly embarrased by the car, cause I never know when or where its going to leave me. What should be bringing me great joy, I find just constantly has me on edge. As one MB mechanic told me.." I can maintain this car for you everyday of the week, but you still better not drive too far in this car in case it breaks.. That should have told me all I needed to know about the quality of this car, 23 year old parts or not
