2 clutch retaining clips (internal in transmission)
3 sets of tires
window regulator cable disintigrated
those were teh major things, and oh yeah, it sucked in the snow and the ashtray broke often.
I love my Mercedes 240D now.
I used to be an automotive technician and I can assure you that it needs one. Hitting bumps/curbs, parts wearing out and ride hight all effect the alignment of a car. The rule is no different then changing your oil every 3/3. Most people don't bother getting there alignment checked unless the steering wheel is not strait or the car is pulling. Just because the car goes strait doesn't mean that everything is ok. And by the way my old boss had a new Mercedes and it was always in need of one.dreamliner77 said:Dubbin: My mercedes is on 3 years without an alignment. Still straight, but think It will be getting one soon.
