Greetings all, and Eric thanks for the new member's "Must Read" sticky; great Info.

Ok, My name is Rodney J., (RJ or Rod) is ok. Live in Oregon
Sad to say, my 1st benz a 2000 E55, was totaled oct. 2010, from a rear ender; had her for only four years. So now, I'm on a search, but with more caution, of another benz. I did enjoy the E55, however, for my driving style, and needs the "beast" was a bit over the top and AMG exclusivity, is not a party for everyone.
However, I will admit, I only had 2 "breakdown" issues, for a total of only $750 in the 4yrs. The rest was scheduled/suggested maintenance. about $2700 in all. So the dependability was far better than my '99 540ia (11mo ownership).

I will conclude by saying I am excited of the next Benz I hope to acquire and I'm leaning toward Coupes 1992 - 1999, S500 or Cl and E320's including Drop-tops. So if there are threads I should consider reading, just direct me.

Again Thanks
