    I believe in Mercedes even though I’ve not owned one yet. Back in the day, my father had a 240E followed by a 280SE. These cars were more enjoyable to drive than all cars that I’ve owned. Both their red/maroon leather seats were so luxurious. No squeak or rattle as fact 9 states. These cars were driven off-road sometimes, in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa were I grew up.

    My parents had an accident in a 1979 model Mercedes 230.6. They slid off an oil slick on the highway fell 60ft into thr Rift Valley escarpment in Kenya. The car landed 9n its wheels with the main cabin and engine intact. They continued their journey covered 600km and returned home in one piece. Those cars were well built solid reliable tanks. I am a Mercedes fan for life.

    Always useful information on this site. Just for curiosity sake, any differences (compromises) on the Mercedes A160. It seem to be giving a lot of problems compared to other models. I own one from Japan.

    I’ve driven a 300D 95model I think then later I got to drive a E320. Both cars were amazingly spacious and very comfortable. Felt like a boat in calm water. Despite the age difference between the two cars. Both very luxurious. And amazing power from the engine with a stock sound system that puts most custom sound systems to shame. Such an amazing car. Even on rough roads they a pleasure to drive. Only maintenance bills are pricey at the Mercedes agents therefore I don’t own one.

    Looking at any of the Mercedes-Benz models from the front you will notice that car gives an impresion of a smile. Quite welcoming. Anytime you see a Mercedes-Benz car, you will know it even before you notice/see its logo – you can never cofuse it with any other car.Finally I have never come across a Mercedes-Benz car whose engine rattles!
