    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!

    I am presently 63 years old and I and my first car ( a Volkswagen Beetle) at age 23.
    Over the last 40 years I have lived by the Grace of God, I have to date been through 42 cars and currently own a Mercedes S320, a Volvo XC70, a Jeep Gand Cherokee, and a Nissan Xtrail. My Current Mercedes S320 is the 5th That I have owned through my life ( the others having been a Mercedes 300D Diesel – Estate, a Mercedes 300 D Turbo Diesel (Saloon), a Mercedes ML270 and a Mercedes C200 Compressor).
    Through This I have found greatest Ownership Satisfaction in drive Comfort, safety and everything considered in the Mercedes (followed by Volvo) and I do not foresee myself for the time I may be favored with on earth buying any other car than a Mercedes (Looking forward to a GL350 or 420!)

    Mercedes Benz has been my dream car, I currently own an E200 2000 model, its my sixth car and five of them have been E class having started with E230. This was a great car with amazing performance.. God willing I want to retire in a G class, any model and capacity will be good enough! I just can not explain how much I am in love with G Class. Every moment I spot one in my bumpy kampala streets, I turn round, my heart stops to beat for while until it has fully gone out of my sight., I love mercedes, the power and I do not think I will ever have enough of it,!! Just as the slogan goes, simply the best or none. Long live Mercedes Benz manaufacturer.
