An older Mercedes is a reliable, luxurious, beautiful vehicle, and contrary to rumors, NOT at all expensive to maintain.

It's the first Mercedes i've ever owned and probably my favorite vehicle i've ever had in over 30 years of owning cars. It's incredibly reliable even with its' high mileage, comfortable and just wonderful. I've had some junk cars in my day, and some decent ones too! but this is by far my favorite. I've had it 4 years and still every day when i get in it it puts a smile on my face.

Great acceleration and braking.

165k miles, only stopped running when my gf wrecked it. Repaired and has run great for years. Like the power, stability, brakes, a/c controls, maneuverability. Paint has faded over time outdoors. Door handles inside have snapped off. Steering column adjust is broken. Center console hinges not working right. Center console cup holder is broken. Windshield wiper fluid pump broken.

Learn about the car you plan on buying.

My car, for some reason don't know why I have to press the brake in order to start it don't know if it is a malfunction of some sort of weird feature. I also caught two flats one at different times each time the bolts were hard as hell to get off even with lubricant but other than that the car is dependable and power everything I don't like that my audio port is in my glove box.
