New Member Ova Here From New York

Hello all,

I am 16 and looking for my first car. With out any doubt Mercedes is my favorite car and not just because I think the cars are "sick" and "awesome," (what most 16 y/os like cars for), but because I really love the brand and its prestigious history. In fact, my most favorite model is the S-Class. I think that if I won the lotto, I would have a garage containing a car time line of the S models (300SEL 6.3, 450SEL 6.9, 560SEL, etc.). I just have a love for this brand I can't even explain.

From the image of driving one to the way they feel when driving them. Frankly I don't understand how people compare them to BMWs, other then the fact they are both German.

Moving on, as far as Mercs, my dad owns a 2008 S550 (Black/Savanna), and a 2007 SL55 (White/Red). I get to drive them and have a good feel for how wonderful and solid these cars feel.

But those two cars are not why I am here. I am 16, and soon turning 17 which means I will be getting my license. I am trying to find the best car for me.

It's gotta be an SUV(heavy winters, I plan on doing handyman work in college), and $15,000.

I would love the GLK350, but my father would never let me get such nice car as my first car.

So I have narrowed it to the ML55 or Cayenne. I have $5,000 of my own money to spend and my dad said he would pay a maximum of $10,000 extra, so I have $15,000. The ML55 seems nice for me. It would hopefully be a 2002 (after facelift).

I have a few questions about it though:

Is this car reliable? (I know the early MLs weren't, but were they by 2002)

Does anyone ever think that this style ML is a little Feminine?

Hope to engage is good convos,
