Need Input

I'm currently shopping around for a mercedes for my wife as a second vehicle. I've narrowed it down to the E Class 95- 00 or the S Class 94-99. Now I've never owned a mercedes before, so I'd appreciate as much information (pros & cons) of both classes. What do I need to be aware of, what is the longevity of these cars, things like that. I'm not afraid to work on a car, so what's the reliability?
I look forward to reading all the suggestions.

For either model, E or S, I recommend glacier white with tan interior. Such combination is the most gorgeous for MB, IMO.

Hello George,

Welcome to the forum. For specific reliability and problem areas, you should cruise over to those respective sub-forums.

In MB parlance, the E-Class you mentioned is a W210 and the S-Class is a W140. You'll find both of those under the sedans section. Since I own a W210 I'm somewhat familiar with what we offer. Check the sticky threads and you'll find one entitled "Common Issues" or something quite similar.
