Why the big change in type of vehicle? You just got into farming?
Hi all who have replied,
the huge change in car is due to me not feeling safe and being really uneasy in normal cars when driving, hence the move to a 4x4.
Im looking at paying between 14-16k
ive just put a deposit down on a 2006 320 cdi sport with 42k miles on the clock. it has all the toys and extras on it, air suspension, cornering lights, xenon lights etc. havent seen it in the flesh yet though! but its from a mercedes dealership.
Well done! It will look miles better than the new version, saw a silver one this morning outside school and was a little bit sick!
This brings me to thinking about a two year old ML 350 Eco with bells and whistles. Yes I know it won't be as good off road but long distance touring across France and towing are my main criteria and off course RELIABILITY.
Let's be honest, the Merc is no where near as nice as the RRS for touring, and is it that much more reliable?
Have you got a V6 or the V8 RRS?
I agree that Mobilo will only take you to a Merc dealer - who will charge an arm and leg for works....
I have GEM Recovery reclaim - top cover - £100 per year for all the family (6 cars, 1 Motorhome + 4 drivers)
Only catch is you have to pay the recovery driver, then you claim it back - upside is you get your cheque within 48hrs of posting the receipt.
I get EU breakdown cover with my Bank Account, you can also take it out with one of the main companies for £15 a month.
Last time I had it they insisted on taking me to Mercedes, they wanted to do replace a turbo, I pulled the car out and got it to an indi who replaced a £12 hose, who also said that he was surprised they had not worked that out on the side of the road.
I'm no longer sold on Mobilo.
If you just fancy a new car though?
Take the ML out and see what you think, I was looking at MLs and after trying the RRS I stopped looking at the ML.
