I do not have a dog but he/she would not be allowed in the Benz if I did. I test drove an otherwise nice S500 in which it's former owner let her dog ride in the back seat. The leather was scratched, the thing had chewed some of the plastic panels, and there was dog hair everywhere. Needless to say, I passed on the car.

For my new $40,000 plus 1998 SLK230, my three male dogs did get a ride, a couple of times (one at a time). But for the used, less than $5,000 1992 190E 2.6 (which is by far a better car than the SLK was or will ever be), they CANNOT ride!! They are very unhappy with that condition, so the dogs retaliate by peeing on the chrome wheels!!! Until I did this:

That photo bestows a whole new meaning on "dog meat".

Ah Musikmann man I thought for sure if you owned a dog you would it riding in the finest car! I do think some dogs can ruin a car but my German Shepherds had their nails clipped and were groomed on a weekly basis and they were VERY well behaved in the car! U couldn't even tell a dog that large had been in the car once the dog hair was immediately cleaned after each car ride. No tears or scrathes, no chewing and in fact they were cleaner then small kids in my car It was nothing but the best for my two GS that were both of a very fine German line!
