Pros

An extremely reliable car with tank like safety and feel. Excellent
driving experience. Cool features. very comfortable. A real classic and
a head turner.

Cons

17-22 MPG coupled with a high compression engine that can only drink
91 Octane or higher. Expensive to fix, but it never breaks.

Mercedes Flagship Full Sized Luxury Sedan — From the Mercedes Benz 5.6 aluminum racing V8 to the power reclining rear seat, every thing about this car is truly remarkable. She may be 17 years old, but don't let that fool you. This car is very well equipped with hydronumatic self leveling suspension, all 4 seats are heated, power everything, sunnroof, and a beefy v8. Driving this car is an absolute joy. The ride is very smooth and controlled. Amazing agile from a car of its size. The interior is very quite and comfortable. The V8 is quiet and silky smooth until you drop the pedal. At your command drop the pedal and feel this beast roar to a rocketing take off. Built for autobahn cursing, 80 to 150 mph is where this car truly shines. You effortlessly watch the speedo rocket past 120 without a care in the world. 150 mph is just as relaxing an comfortable as 45mph.

Really Sexy, Powerful And Fast! — Expensive to fix and maintain, but built to outlast most other cars. Poor on gas, goes like a bat out of hell (!). Really sexy look, gets compliments all the time. Rides low, needs good winter tires for snow, but I've gone skiing no problems. Tons of room @ front, average @ back. Lots of neat options.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Sharp looks, luxurious interior, gobs of power.

Cons

Terrible fuel economy

My Autobahn Bomber — It's an older model, but she still drive like new. It will burn rubber if you want, but it also drinks gas at the same time. It's black with gray leather, and it still looks sharp. It's not really my car, per se, it's my mom's sunday driver, but she'll probably be trading up in a few months. She's had this one forever, and is about ready for something a little bit newer (not to mention, with better fuel economy). But, despite everything else, its still a Mercedes-Benz, and as such, "Engineered like no other car in the world".

This Car Will Definitely Go Up In Value Someday! — Last of the well built ones. This Mercedes really speaks of quality. It can go 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. If I had space and the money, i would definitely keep it. Now, it is sold to someone in NY.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Outstanding Machine, But You Have To Pay To Play. — the only main issue i can take with this car is that it ran hotter than hell no matter how much coolant was in it or how cold the temperature was. too much engine, in too little engine bay, with too little cooling = cooked a $23K engine sitting in construction traffic. other than that i couldn't have asked for a better car to storm empty roads with.
