As usual, everything was great! Because the ML 230 is going on 17 years old, I authorized repairs up to $3,000 without the need to call. The bill came out to be $703.00. With other repair shops, the bill would likely have come out to be near $3,000. I trust you guys! Paulie (Polly?) is always calm and reassuring. She has excellent stress-coping skills! Alan
