Mileage? What are you up to?
I am new here, but not new to Mercedes. I married into a family of loyal Mercedes buyers from 1940 on. Still in our fleet; a 1963 with 97,600 miles; a 1972 with 163,900 miles (and Ice Cold Air Conditioning!) a 1989 SEL 600 with 285,000 miles, formerly a 1994 S280 which had 265,000 prior to the wreck, an 04 S 430 with 116,000 miles, and we soon will own a 1999 S 500 with 107,300 miles. All are gasoline engines.
Prior to owning Mercedes, I would consider a car with more than 60,000 miles as 'High Mileage' and, probably best to look into a new one!
But I am certain, had the S 280 not been wrecked, it would have made 300,000 miles without hesitation. Our 1989 SEL is the car we pull out of the garage when we are having trouble getting something else to run! (excessive cold, ect!) She's our Old reliable.
So, what is your 'old reliable' and how many miles does she have on her?
I look forward to getting to know all of you!
