Scotty, I applaud your courage in pointing all this out for consumers’ benefit. However, I am always so sorry to hear the direction that Mercedes Benz has taken – it’s nothing short of tragic. I am now 75 and owned 6 older Mercedes in New Zealand between 1978 and 2010. The first was a 1963 220S which I bought as a one owner car in 1978 when it was 15 years old and I kept it for 10 years. They were all good and I wish I still owned them all.
Now I live in Colombia and sadly 3 years ago bought a 2007 B Class at 76,000 kms. But it has a CVT transmission and the upshot was that it was uneconomic to repair. We sold it at a heavily discounted price just to get rid of the problem. Now we have a 1993 W124 300E – it had done 99,000 miles when we purchased it for a price of 26 million Colombian Pesos (USD5,800). These indestructible NO COMPUTER cars are worth 3-4 times that price in the US as their reputation for reliable longevity is legendary and growing.
I never owned a 124 before, but I think it’s the pick of all the previous cars I owned and hopefully I’ll still own it when I finally cease driving. It is our daily driver and interestingly whenever we arrive back home we don’t want to get out of it because it fits like a glove and is so comfortable. We’ve had to do some work to it, but relatively minor and mainly just bringing it up to scratch with some delayed maintenance.
I always enjoy your Youtubes – long may they continue.
Yup my Silverado transmission blew a year ago. 5k to fix. Sold it got myself an old high mileage Titan which I know Scotty doesn’t approve of but 2k for 4×4 leather seats crew cab couldn’t pass it up. Been great to me so far no warning lights whatsoever on the dash.
