Took the 300E to Norway. -Almost no problems..

So i drove the Benz from Denmark, all the way up through Sweden and into Norway to spend the weekend in a nice cabin by one of the 'fjords' up there. Beautiful trip!

The Benz behaved very nice all the way. No problems.
-Except that the insanely annoying stumbling idle/surging/8 mpg-problem resurfaced 30 mins after i started the trip.
-The sunroof got stuck in tilted-up position after a few hours.
-The cabin heating went absolutely balalaika -again! So at night there was no heat at all, and during the hot sunny day the heat blasted like crazy..
-The seatbelt decided to stop retracting at the second fuel stop..
-The 'low washer fluid' light came on, even though the tank was full. (very annyoing bright light!)
Oh.. and a stone cracked my brand new windshield on the way home..

All in one 900 mile trip!
I'm truly glad i have one of these sturdy over-engeneered cars. If it had been a car of lesser quality, the entire car would propably have disintegrated beneath me..

..End of rant.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!
