Yep, that’s ok, all cars have their demons.
Outside of annual servicing, after eight years I see every nine months the Merc will need £200 spent on it - could be normal consumable stuff that you spend on any car, like tyres, exhaust, brake pads - or 190 specific stuff, like ball joints or the something or other sensor (outboard relay switch?) whose name escapes me now.
As the car costs me zilch from months on end, I’d be used to another car that costs nothing then springs a bill on me : - )
