May buy my first MB- Any issues I should look for?

I am looking at purchasing my first MB- likely in the 1995 to 2000 year range, sedan, probably C class (but any will do)

I know from owner Landrovers and Volvos, they have their own quirks and things to look-out for.

Are there any standout issues with MB that I should keep my eye out for while searching.

Also, repair costs. I am able to do many of my own repairs to keep the costs down on my Volvo and Landrover. Are costs similar?

Thanks for your input!
