True. Here's the deal: When I got the car, the only thing that didn't work on it was the parking brake. You pulled on the release and it just slid right out of the dash. Pressing the pedal down applies the parking brake, but it doesn't latch. I removed the release handle and found that the

True. That could very well be the case, but without getting the whole assembly out or at least being able to access it, I can't tell. The release cable is buried in the pedal assembly somehow, and even requires a special tool to remove and install it. There are two bolts that hold the whole

Having spent time in both, I'd say the W211 is a much better car than the W210 in terms of quality of materials and general feel. I've logged a large number of miles of W211s over the years and always enjoyed them. Jaime On Sun, Jul 26, 2015 at 10:15 PM, clay via Mercedes mercedes@okiebenz.com

I've heard that before on this list, but I use it on locks and everything else since it first came on the market and have no problems. WD-40 contains a very light oil and probably leaves a little residue, but how many of the millions of people who use WD-40 have problems with that residue? If a

I can identify with this. While I like my S430, it’s completely soulless compared to earlier models. Other than the hood star there is nothing, and I mean nothing, that makes it stand out among other cars. As for crap I can’t say, as I haven’t had any issues with mine so far (knock on

If I were looking for a used MB diesel sedan, that is the most recent year / model I would buy. Terrifically low fuel consumption, powerful, quiet, reliable. I don't think they are quite as reliable as a 123, which is a relatively simple car, but for a modern car you can't do much better. --
