1995 S500

New member here. Just bought a 1995 S500 sedan with 52K verified miles on it. I have teenagers and want them to be driving a tank on the road, given their inexperience. Hope this car is reliable - I' ve had poor luck with MB's in the past. Had a 2002 C240 that was an absolute piece of junk - electrics blew out after 9K miles, parts were literally falling off the car at 50K miles. Have a ML430 that started burning lotsa oil at 35K miles. SE rep for MB informed me that it was MB's policy to not fix the problem unless the car was burning a quart every 200 miles during the warranty period.
