30 minutes of ownership is all I got...
For the past few years I have been saving money to buy my father something he always wanted, a nice old Benz. I finally found one after the last 3 months of searching, a 1987 190E 2.3 16V, babied since new with 93k. I have never owned a Mercedes but I had to admit it was nice when I picked it up last night. 30 minutes after picking it up a tractor trailor clips my rear bumper, snow plows me down 95 North, I spin three times and hit a ditch and flip over 3 times to land on the roof. Miraculously, I didn't have a scratch on me. I walked away. Unfortunately, the car for my father my very well be ruined. I am thankful to be alive and I am a believer that MB makes a very very safe product. On the same note I spent a lot of hard earned money and I have no car...very disappointing. Everyone at the scene said I should have been dead. Thought I would share this with you guys, I have earned great respect for these cars.
