After having bought the car and left it for a day on our garage ramp, it would not start next day (b/c battery drain). I traced it to a faulty passenger seat module. This seems like a common issue on all MB with automatic seats adjustments. When driving at low speeds and the road is not completely flat (worn pavement, bumps...) you can hear clunks coming front the front. It turns out to be the sway bar end links are worn out. This is another know issue on all these cars.

Windshield washer resevoir was damaged during head gasket repair. Lots of arguing, they paid to replace broken component - filler neck and grommets to secure the neck.

Alternator needed to be replaced. Light 'visit workshop - alternator/battery repair' lit up. Went to dealer. Oil leak. Determined supercharger is leaking. Declined repair. I feel this is related to alt change. Driving home after alt changed, burning oil smell. Never happened until alt was changed. Suspicious coincidence. Shop says no.

OIL, not antifreeze dripping. Told me I need a new water pump. Also want $1800 to fix various hoses/leaks, 'none major' or in imminent failure! Car smelled so bad it was going back yesterday, but ultimately didn't. My son will look at it. Was told in August that my super-charger was leaking and needed to be replaced at $2300. Car in for oil and brakes 12/31/13, super-charger 'fine, no leaks or problems'!!! Miraculous recovery I guess
