I moved this from the Class B category to Class C since I think it gets more "traffic" and the models I'm looking at fit in both Classes. Here is the message..........
I know there is an additive on the newer (2008+) 3.0L Mercedes diesels but I'm getting conflicting info on how much that really costs. While looking at a 2012 model the dealer tells me the added cost is minimal but based on an average driver of 15,000 miles it adds only about $14/year. However I found a nice clean 2006 (2.7L) unit at another dealer and he tells me that having the 2.7L and not having to add the additive would save me "hundreds" of $/year.
What's the real facts?.....and thanks, I'm getting closer to decisions here.
