You folks at Mercedes need to do a better job of making these cars...100K for a 2002 when new now sells for under 10K in 2013!
So many problems and items needing to be fixed! This car company prides itself on making a quality vehicle but most second or third owners have nothing but headaches! I have maintained my SL according to recommendations put forth by Mercedes and yet..I still keep spending money! I will never recoup it and no one wants to buy my headaches.
