My Mercedes has 230.000 kms on it. Has been with me since November 2005.
Hello and welcome
Welcome to the forum and nice to hear of the long term ownership!
Hi and welcome to the forum. I assume you like your Mercedes!
Hi and welcome
Welcome Charlie, it's taken you a long time to find your way here.
Well he did have nearly 143,000 miles to drive to get here
Thanks to all for your welcome messages and humor .
Yes it was almost 14 years ago when I got the car. It was originally a leased company car that I have driven from day one until now. This is my classic car and I have performed all timely maintenance at MB dealerships.
It has served me very well until recently when the car started to suffer from cold-start stall issues. This has been well reported and documented in MBO until August 2010, but the problem went unsolved. I have started a new thread with info of what appears to be finally the identification of the root cause (722.6 box torque converter clutch) and a fix.
Most probably there are not too many 722.6 box equiped Mercedes around here by now but, if interested, you can find it at:
I have 2 myself!
