Re: £250 for a 2001 Renault Laguna 1.8 ...
Mercedes went through a decidedly 'dodgy patch' in the nineties, I completely agree.
And at that time I consciously decided against the 3-pointed star.
But since then, they have been improving, and one thing is true; M-B on their worst day, is still better than a French car at their best.
Buyers are not stupid, and there's a good reason why one brand depreciates like a stone, whilst another doesn't.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
