That is a lot of car for $8k. I have not heard any bad things about that V6. Try to find a Mercedes mechanic close by and take it there for inspection if the dealer will let you. If he gives his blessing then go for it. I don't see why not.

The W220 was sold for one year with the v6 - 2006. It was also the regular wheelbase rather than the extended version sold throughout that generation run of 2000-2006.

My 3k 2005 civic was recently hit by a truck, and the truck driver's insurance company accepted that he was was entirely at fault.

The insurance company sent out an appraiser and they're offering $3300 to total my car. They sent a valuation report with comps (pic related), but they're adjusted everything down by a lot to come up with their (((Adjusted Comparable Value))).
The only differences I can think of is my car has 153,000 miles, and has a manual transmission, while these have automatics.

How do I avoid being jewed by the insurance companies?

You had a 3k civic, tie offering you 3k for it. That is the best deal you could ever get. If you had sold your car, you would not have gotten 3k for it.

You need to find a significantly more powerful Jew to send into the Jew arena (court) to fight for you in a trial of Jew combat (word games). Also you neck probably hurts really bad, doesn't it?
>>
>>21654665
3300 is all your car is worth dude. You aren't gonna get anymore than that, your car isn't more valuable because its a manual. Your car was valued based on its condition, mileage and current market value based on that.

You aren't entitled to a newer car you're entitled to a car that was of equal value to your current one.

Did you ask them what the buy back is? Or tell them that you demand it to be fixed to the same condition as before the truck side sipped you.

What are some tips for buying battery? Numbers and specs should be looking for?

So my battery is nearing the end of its life expectancy then. Does it make sense to pre-purchase a replacement and keep it in stock or even preemptively replace it? Is there a way to tell when they're about to go or is it just sudden?

Any other battery replacing tips one should know about? Scotty Kilmer says that if you don't supply a supplemental power source through the OBD2 port all the electronics will be inadvertently reset:

>>21655186
Dont purchase a battery until you need it. Batteries degrade from the moment they are manufactured.

Have your battery tested by auto zone or walmart and they can tell you if it needs replacing or not.

Batteries tend to crap themselves during the summer or winter time
>>
>>21654669
not same anon, but yeah there are real weight and longevity benefits to a lithium battery. figure out what CCA your car needs and check out a battery from braille or similar for what you need
>>
>>21654198
Find the size that fits your car, go to Walmart, buy whatever battery fits your budget. FL heat and driving with the AC kills batteries pretty quick, whichever battery you get will last like 3mos past the warranty, whether you buy Duralast from AutoZone, EverStart from Walmart, or whatever brand Advance and the others carry.

I suggest Walmart because their prices are the best. Walmart’s Gold and AutoZone’s Gold are going to be literally the exact same thing, but Walmart tends to be like $50 cheaper because Vatozone makes all their profit on stuff like that.

For numbers, they all have a size and CCA and capacity. The deep cycle and extended capacity are if you plan on running music and shit for extended time without the car running.
>>
Since your in FL it doesnt matter because you dont need high CCA.
So just get the manufacturers specs or higher.
I would try to get non mexican and chinese batteries. Try to get american ones because the mexican ones die fast.
AGM for start/stop, or if you don't drive the car a lot.
I replaced my 8 year old Lead Acid battery in my BMW about a month ago.
And get a good warranty. Interstate got sold to johnston controls so their batteries are now made in Mexico.
Unless you dont care about going for the battery replacement, but the AAA dude told almost all the batteries he replaced were made in mexico ones.
Lead acid abused should give 4 years. Agm is pricier but will last longer if you dont drive much.

>that they never get pulled over for driving like assholes because cops are terrified of lifted trucks. (The high ride height means they can't see what's going on inside the truck when they walk up to it and there's a perception that lifted truck owners are likely to be the kinds of people who'll shoot a cop in a traffic stop
I think a lot of people have a hard time wrapping their head around the fact that if you get stopped by a cop, the cop is more afraid of you than you might realize, especially if you look like you might be dangerous. After all, there have been too many tragedies like the Vietnam vet back in the 90s that gunned a cop down at a routine stop. Plus the little service pistols they carry are no match for people who may potentially be packing big/powerful/illegal firearms.

I would turbo it but it's really a question of having the time to do it, the space to do it, and it's currently my only car so I don't wanna try to boost it, break something important and be left stranded with no way to work. If I had a second car I would do it in a heart beat, but I don't have the space to park a second car.

Check airfilter

Check and make sure you are using the correct octane of fuel

And if both are good run some fuel injection cleaner, either techron concentrate or gum out.

Not buying a 2.8 litre V6 if you’re after fuel economy might be a good start.

GM's lawsuit alleges that FCA's former CEO Sergio Marchionne authorized bribes of more than $1.5 million paid to UAW officials. Marchionne died in 2018.

It also alleges that Marchionne hoped to force higher labor costs onto GM in hopes of furthering a plan to induce the company to merge with FCA.
