A case of the Benz
I am about to purchase a 1998 S420.
I am scared and thrilled. I am very concerned that I have bitten off more than I can pay for. But astounded by the luxury, ride, steering (who said you need rack and pinion?) seats. I must admit there is a tug towards the three pointed star on the hood. I can try to deny this but it would be foolish.
I am scared that the bills will be outlandish.
I don't want to start out spurting blasphemy but, I must ask,
And I buying a patently unreliable car?
I bought one of those used car warranties which I am affraid is not worth the paper it is written on.
The weird thing is that I have always had good luck with "unreliable" cars.
I have had numerous saabs with nothing but usual wear stuff. 9000, (2) 900 (2) currently for my wife a 1999 9-3 its been a truly great car.
I currently own 1994 BmW 530 wagon with a v8. 167k and runs like steam roller.
Folks what are you thoughts about this vehicle and its reliability? I can live with the gas mileage.
My best to you all and I look forward to your wisdom.
