2006 Mercedes-Benz E500 Reviews

I have a E350 Mercedes Benz wagon and I have always taken it to Auto bahn motors in Belmont to fix any problems on my car. I also bought my car there and three other cars there in the past. I am being charged $1250.00 for a new fuel pump, but not the whole fuel pump system. I sometimes feel that because I always take my car there to be fix that they tend to charge me too much. My question is-Is $1250.00 for just the fuel pump too much? Am I being overcharged for this and has there been problems with the fuel pump system with many other people with this same car?

this is my second ``E``class .Still have my 300E 1989.Also a BMW 535i E28 1988. Mercedes are the top-notch.Had-and
been- there...I`ve owened 6 volvo`s,2 bmw`s,2vw`s and
1 ford. When and if (God permitting) I buy my next newer car?
It will be
Aye Mercedes Benz............4MATIC
