1993 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class 500E 4dr Sedan


Review

I love the car but it sucks the money right out of my wallet. Be prepared to spend big bucks on maintenance. My tranny just went out and cost me $4500, not to mention around 5k in other miscellaneous repairs. And this is only with in a year. Granted my car has 159,000 miles...but still. A beautiful car and I love driving it, but it is not cheap.


Favorite Features

Exterior, flared fenders, backseat wood console, speed, handling, brakes.


Suggested Improvements

No cup holders! Starts in second gear (though a first gear start can be purchased).

1993 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class 500SL 2dr Convertible


Review

My vehicle was in staorage for a period of time. It was in great shape when I purchased it. What I did not know was the hydraulic air pistons that operated the roof system were dried out and brittle causing them to leak. The replacemnet cost was close to $4000


Favorite Features

I like the style and looks of my SL500. It is a weekend driver for me. I enjoy driving up to the counrty club and getting compliments on my car from friends. My friends compliment me on my car.

Review

I bought this car last year with 58,000 miles and the day I brought it home, the transmission went! Then the shocks, and the rear suspension, and the A/C evaporator, and the front armrest, and then the doors stopped being "sucked" shut. I still think it is the best looking car on the road, not to mention it's awesome acceleration 60 to 120 MPH!! The power and heated seats are unmatched by any other car, and the use of space is also very impressive. No matter how awesome this car is, you need to have deep pockets to own one. Between $70 oil changes and $500 brakes, make sure you can afford one before you buy!!


Favorite Features

Rear seat leg room, Power rear and heated seats, power door sealers, 315 hp engine, great styling, driver comfort, turning radius, and quiet ride


Suggested Improvements

A decent cup holder in the front, cheaper parts and service!
