This is my fourth classic mercedes. It is a remarkable vehicle. A 280 hp V8 engine delivers seemingly endless power. Extremely quick from 40-100 mph. An excellent vehicle which is quickly becoming scarce. Build quality is typical MB of this era. Spare no expense teutonic quality. Buy one without ASR traction control if you can.
Purchased as a Mercedes Starmark car
almost 5 years ago with 50,000 miles.
I now have 110,000 trouble free miles.
This car is so fun to drive with the
V8. It is truly a wolf in sheep's
clothing. Other than routine
maintence, battery and set of tires,
this car has been perfect. I used to
own Cadillac's before I purchased the
Mercedes, but the Cadillac was
problamitic and the dealersips was
terrible. Mercedes Benz of Portland
has been great for service. I jjust
bought my wife an ML 420 and she loves
Great ride and power. Mercedes
reliablity and great service. Great
saftey and quAlity. Even the stereo
and multi disc CD player work great
the only thing I would of like to seen
is a cup holder--no big deal
One cannot possibly do better. Gas mileage identical to 320 except w/ferocious power! Some morons spend $20,000+ on Civic/ Accord, etc. Instead can have a monstrous fast, luxury liner built like a Mac for under $18,000. Extraordinarily reliable, incomparable in any fashion. 500,000+ SAME motor. A claim no other manufacturer can make. & they drive like new no matter miles. No squeaks, hesitation. Buying anything else is stupidity. Comparing them is like comparing a chalk board to a Pentium 4.
Power, quietness, reliability, image, safety, build quality is incomparable.
