Worst car ever

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)

I bought this car with only one previous owner with only 57k miles cash for 7k. Worst mistake ever. As soon as I got the car things started breaking down, transmission, electrical etc. If you are looking for a luxury vehicle STAY AWAY!

Computer replacement

Vehicle: 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

I had to replace the main computer board in their c320? Took my car in to carmax after the coolant light came on. First they said it was the fan and replaced it. I was told the tech broke off the sensor and now all I know is this simple repair has ballooned into a nightmare.
