Seller Comments

UPDATE: The engine CPU was left open to the weather and it is trashed. This is an expensive ($1,000+) fix.This has been a bad luck car for loss is your gain. I acquired it as forfeited collateral on a loan.

It wasn't running at first. My mechanic Jake got it running by wiggling some ignition wires under the dash. It ran good, but since he wasn't Mercedes certified, he could not work on the ignition.

Mistake 1: I took it to a mechanic unknown to me. He kept the car for over a year with every excuse in the book. Then his true intentions surfaced. He informed me that now I had abandoned the car and he was filing to acquire it. I took the police and a tow truck and got my car back.

Thinking I'd be better off,,, I towed the car to a Mercedes dealership...MISTAKE #2 ! Their source said the car didn't belong to me so they had it towed, without ever checking with me. I own the car free and clear. I chewed them out when I found out about it by a certified letter from a tow company for tow + storage. The dealer said they would try to get the vehicle back; that was June 2017. I never heard from them until one day in September. I had written the car off in my mind, after 1 3/4 years of aggravation. They flabbergasted me by asking what I wanted to do with the car - that they had had it since June. I went to them and explained about the loose wiring. They never checked that so again I towed the car an authorized repair shop.

New tires, battery, key, hood shocks, ornament, diverter valve, and GREAT BODY with a few minor blemishes.

So now it is towed and back in my yard. I will sell it as is or will consider parting it out. I know the engine is good, but can no longer prove it. I'd be glad to sell you the car and leave the funds in an escrow account until you can verify the engine's condition. I am also open to accepting trades for a motorcycle (1,000cc's +), another car or ????
