Fun but Expensive to Maintain
By JeffreySharp on
1996 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S420 4dr Sedan
This is a beautiful car both interior and exterior and the perfect size for a family of 6-plus footers. It is powerful and drives wonderfully particularly on the highway. Be sure to get a warranty though because lots of things tend to go wrong and when they do they are expensive to fix. The engineering seems to be more complicated than necessary which makes any repairs expensive. Next car will probably be Japanese. Had an Acura before this and it went 9 years and besides regular maintenance it never went to the shop.
Interior space and appointments.
Reengineer for reliability. Dont make things so complicated to repair.
