1991 Mercedes-Benz 560-Class 560SEL 4dr Sedan


This car was given to me when I got my license a few months ago. It doesn't dent, and it would survive any collisions. I'm at 84k miles and I've had a lot of problems, and it costs an arm and a leg to repair. The A/C compressor is broken and the dealer wants $2k for it. I feel really safe in it, but I get an awful 10 mpg and it's extremely difficult to park and maneuver. It takes a lot of strength to turn the wheel. This car isn't for short people - the hood is gigantic.

Best Features

The powerful V8 engine. It's fast. ABS, SRS and hydropneumatic level control coming standard is new for '91.

Worst Features

Keyless entry. For as much as the car was worth when it came out it should have a glove compartment and gloveholders. I have to drive friends around a lot, and they complain about the backseat being extremely bouncy but they like that it reclines and has heaters.
