Check Engine light came on my Merecedes. My car ran just fine when I took it in. Took to the dealer. Diagnosed as needing two spark plugs and four spark plug wires. They wanted $800+. Told them I can not afford it would like to take it some where else. My wife picks up the car and goes several miles and the car dies on the side of the road (my wife said as soon as she turned the engine at the dealer, she could tell the engine was not working properly). Mercedes denies they did anything wrong. They told me that the car was old (1999) and had too many miles (134,000). Told them that the age and mileage had nothing to do with the performance of the car when we brought the car and left with it. Towed the car to another refutable place and they diagnosed it totally different. The car runs beautifully. Asked the mechanic if the car was tempered with and he was very hesitant to say yes or no. If you want a refutable mechanic, go east of Lancaster.
