newbie looking at a benz

hello everyone.

this is my first post here. im not a benz owner yet but id like to get one. ive always wondered what it would be like.

im looking at a 190 as a starter. can anyone give the good and bad on this car? ive always had japanese cars so imn coming from a gas, park and drive day in day out kind of car. how is maintenance with this car and what are the things that i should look for when purchasing this particular model?

i dont really know anything about german cars. im sure in some way they are taken cared for in a different manner than the japanese cars. are they as bullet proof as the japanese cars?

any info would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

happy new year to all.

Yeah cruise the various departments. I'm a diesel head, have not had any experience with the 190's tho.
Happy hunting.

Mercedes is a great car to drive, but don't expect it to have Toyota reliability. Best of luck though!
