This car was my first MB and due to the problems and quality most likely my last. At 100K the engine (in-line 6) began leaking oil at the head. I have also had electrical problems with the dash and rear tail-lights. I could live with these issues but the other day while driving down the road my front left spring fell out! The spring pearch had rusted off. If I was going faster someone could have been killed as my spring went bouncing down the road!
The drive is (was) great and the car looks awesome.
The spring pearch looked like it was off a Vega not an MB. It is a huge safety issue and MB refuses to fix it!
