I have 155000 miles and generally very happy with performance, reliability and dependability. However, this is the third time I have a problem with blower motor and controller. It costs anywhere from $800 to $1300 to fix it with only 30 days warranty. If any one else has similar problem please let me know what you have done to fix it.

This is a solid car. Only one previous owner and they took care of it. Smooth ride. For a '97 it has pretty advanced features (rain sensing wipers, memory seat settings, etc.) Not too bad on gas for a big car. 25 on highway if I set the cruise control for 60 and just leave it. Love the sun roof. Back seat leg room is huge. Quiet ride. Road trip heaven. And the best part ... it's a Benz!
