Mercedes Luxury at a Bargain Price!

by
Jul 22, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: It's a Mercedes!!
Cons: No heat when stopped. No heat when temp is between 30 and 50 F.
The Bottom Line: The Mercedes is the epitome of luxury. However, the only way to purchase these used is to bring a KNOWLEDGEABLE mechanic. Know your seller!!

I bought this car one year ago used from a Chevy dealer. There were several minor things wrong with the car when I bought it: Fan (serpentine) belt needed replacement; right headlight lens was cracked (replaced from wrecked 300E) ; the cruise control was ... read more

Jun 19, 2004 - Updated Aug 12, 2008 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Build like a Tiger tank, tons of cachet, absolutely gorgeous to look at.
Cons: MB dealers are total snobs, makes you want to invade neighbouring countries.
The Bottom Line: True luxury and craftsmanship of the old school. Just be careful when you buy one and MAINTAIN IT!

In my review of my Cutlass Ciera, I mentioned that the high rollers in my company had all bought BMWs. I too decided on some "new" wheels and went looking for my dream car, a 1990 Merceedes Benz 560SEL. If you are buying a Merc, you have to obey a ... read more

My First Car

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Quality, Reliability, Comfort, ITS A MERCEDES BENZ!!!
Cons: Gas milage is ok but could be better.
The Bottom Line: This is a great car and at an exceptional price too good to pass up!

I was 15 when I bought this car from my boss who I worked for during the summer and on weekends. These cars depriciate in value so much over the years that even I could afford to buy one. All of my classmates envy it which is cool. When people see a kid ... read more

A San Diego Tested Benz

by
Aug 15, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Lots of room, Looks great, well designed, and well built.
Cons: Like any car, if you don't maintain them be prepared to Invest some money.
The Bottom Line: I would buy many more of these, but Mercedes-Benz have other cars that are just as good such as the 1984 300CD Turbo Diesel.

I got a deal when I bought this car. When you first see this car your mind gets blown away by it's elegant style. This car to this day is still used in many countries by kings and dictators. I look forward to driving this car every time I wake up or ... read more

Best way to spend $10k

by
Aug 3, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Still better than any new Japanese or American "Luxury" car. Fast, quiet, reliable
Cons: IF it isn't maintained, it'll cost u an arm and a leg to fix it.
The Bottom Line: There is NO better way to spend $10k. Reliable, fast, quiet, roomy, and it's a Mercedes. Could you possibly ask for more?

My experience is limited to the 560SEL that I have been driving with my learner's permit, and which will probably be my first car here in the next few weeks. This is one of the last cars that Mercedes made before they had to compete with the ... read more

Best ride on the road

by
Nov 24, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Size, quality, ride
Cons: repair cost

To make such a statement would open one up to the ridicule of all those heavily invested in the latest crop of Lexus, BMW, or even today Mercedes offerings. But the fact remain, borne out by any knowledgeable mechanic, that these cars remain a driving ... read more

Just keeps on going and going...

Jul 16, 2000 - Updated Aug 1, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Solid, great gas mileage, cheap to keep.
Cons: Radio is a bit basic. Nothing else at all.

I bought my 300E in September 1990 - the car market was depressed and I could get a pretty good deal on the car as a result. It was the first Mercedes I had owned; my Dad had had a few in his time and they had proved comfortable and reliable vehicles, ... read more

"Classic", not "Used"

Oct 27, 1999 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Solid as a tank, supreme long distance driver, bulletproof reliability
Cons: Transmission, climate controls, land yacht dynamics

The 1980-1991 S-Class sedans defined the image for what most people probably think of when they hear the word "Mercedes". This generation of S-Class made its merits on bank vault-like solidity (a popular showroom demonstration was to slam the ... read more

Best Mercedes Built

Nov 21, 2005 (Show)
Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Powerful engine, safe as a tank, reliable, fast
Cons: Repairs are too costly
I bought this car back in 1990 brand new. They don't make cars like this anymore, even the new S-Class. You really get what you pay for, and the base price of $62000 was worth it! I have had only about two problems with it; one is the radiator broke ... read more
