Hello from Vancouver, BC

Hi there

I'm new to this forum. Unlike many of you, I don't know much about cars. I went for SLK purely because of its look

I have always gone back to MB dealer for service and repair in the past six years. Unfortunately, as the company grows bigger, I've only become more and more disappointed with its service. Therefore, I've finally decided that it's time to learn more about cars so as a girl going into dealer, I won't be seen as $$$$... I apologize in advance that I am unable to provide much knowledge but at least I can share my experience with you all

Cheers

Christine

Hi, Christine! Welcome from Hillsboro, Oregon. You've already found Mr. Antwerp and there are several other Vancouver/south mainland BC members who ought to be along shortly and some on the Island as well. You may find the resources here to encourage you to do some work on your car, but you will certainly find the information which will allow you to speak to the dealer service writer in a manner which will tell them that you have an understanding of what your car needs and what it doesn't. Check the Canada Region club section, since there is a group show & shine happening in Vancouver at the end of this month.
