I bought this car at least 3 years ago with 50,000.
Yes, 50,000 from a lady in Encino who passed away.
It has not given me ONE PROBLEM other than scheduled issues.
My Mom drives it and has put on at least 30 to 40k.
I cannot express to you enough how well built these cars are.
I bought this car used a couple of years ago
and I love the versatility and the solid build of
the car. I used to drive a Volvo and after
driving a Honda and a Ford previously, I
thought the Volvo was a pretty solid car; until I
got the Mercedes. I feel totally safe in the car.
It is pretty quiet as far as engine noise in the
passenger compartment. However, there is
some noise when going over rough road
probably due to the echoing within the cabin
(rather than being confined within a trunk like
a sedan). My wife and I love the cavernous
interior which allows us to do all sorts of
shopping when needed. It is also a great car
for road trips.
After a few weeks of driving my new
car, I thought, I hope I will always
own a Mercedes. Talking to another '95
Mercedes owner that owned a number of
cars including a new Lexus LS4xx, he
brought up that same feeling about his
Mercedes. At 60,000 the car was
running better than other cars I've
owned with less mileage. It was more
reliable, with very tight body. I was
begining to think trade-in, when I
brought it in for the 60,000 mile check-
up. As I drove it away from the dealer,
I was amazed that it drove as well as
it did the day I bought it. At 75,00
there is still no reason to trade it
in. It has been a great automobile,
much better than I expected.
