    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.

  14. Sean Carritt says

    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.

  30. Baldwin Chiyamwaka says

    My fourth vehicle was a Mercedes Benz C200. That was the first time I drove the most comfortable, stable, well build strong bodied vehicle in my driving experience. By that time I had driven a variety of Toyota brands including Mark II, Gaia, Elmina Lucida, Hillux 4×4 DCabin etc. I later changed to Nissan Xtrail, a great car itself but missed the Mercedenz Benz so much. I therefore bought a C240. The first time my wife drove it she said “like driving on the carpet. I love Mercedenz Benz. If God Graciously keeps me alive for the next many years and sustains my income to own a car, obviously my first choice is a Mercedenz Benz. My current dream car is the GL 4matic.

  31. Davie says

    Keep it up cfj,never drove one,but at the fullness of time and the hardwork will own one some day….

  32. Shane says

    Mercedes Benz are one of the ultra rugged vehicles, they last long enough before reaching their capacity of replacement I mean the transmission will never break as long as it is well maintained unlike other brands that will never reach 200k or more miles without tearing ur breaking up parts by parts, Mercedes Benz are being marked as one of the toughest and ultra rugged vehicle around the world, relative names are Hispano Suiza, Daimler Benz and as mentioned by the article itself Karl Benz, those names are legends of its own, ask Mercedes Benz owners what makes them stick forever on that brand, why? What? And the best ?

    You’ll never regret owning one.

  33. Leonard says

    My all time dream car…….precious and comfortable .

  34. Steven Malamba says

I have owned four different models of merc since then. I now want either a g- or m-class by next year! O Lord help me!
