This Is Seriously The Best Car Ever Built. — yea, this car is responsible for the great reputation of Mercedes. and I'm telling you, I'd buy one again (I didn't really own one, friends bought one and we shared for a time). Just look at it! how more automobile can a car be? everything is in the place where you'd expect it, no gadgetry. just pureness. and it's a fantastic comfortable ride too.

Pros: Mercedes STILL PRODUCES SPARE PARTS! (but you ain't need them)

Cons: they don't build the car anymore.

Very Good Oldtimer Model — Good to start with oldtimers, fair maintenance price, a lot of original parts still available, looks good on the road, very enjoyable to drive (automatic), and the next logical step would be Jaguar XJ-6 (mid 70).

Pros: fair price, comfortable ride, big (and I mean BIG), high-class

Cons: BIG doesn't necessarily mean good ;)

Solid Classic — Great classic car with classic good looks. Almost everywhere I went in this car a stranger would strike up a conversation about it. The car was strong, solid, and reliable, but lacked seriously in the performance department. Not very fast, and not the best handling, but some of that could be due to its age. Regardless, I still enjoyed every minute of ownership, there's just something about driving an old Mercedes...

Pros: Classic looks, Mercedes Quality, Good Reliability

Cons: Slow Acceleration, Gas Guzzler

Great All-rounder By Syed

Well built and fun to drive, though feels a little under-powered at times which in-turn might be because of unusually tall gear ratios....I would say its a great car, only let down by reliability issu... Read More
