I've heard horror stories about fuel pumps failing at 80mph, but I
guess it could happen on any car. A couple more questions/opinions:
- I guess the bottom line is even a Benz can fail. With mine, I took
every possible precaution when I bought it, but I guess if it's God's
will, it can go, too :) Also, I've been driving a 1993 Chevy Cavalier
for 4 years, bought it from a nice old lady. I changed oil when I had
the money (not too often), replaced nothing, not even sparkplugs,
jumped off curbs, hit a deer, and my brother straightened the front end
with a 2x4 ... The thing has a rusted out bottom and sides, but it
- When you guys bought your Benzes, did you ever have to explain to
your family why you bought a Mercedes-Benz as opposed to a Ford Taurus?
I think some members of my family are ready to disown me. No
reasoning about MB's superior quality / dependability can persuade them
I DIDN'T 't drop $10k on this car ...
