Talking thinking about buying

Hello all;
I'm thinking about treating myself to a new car. That new car will be used because I don't want to take the hit on depreciation that comes with a new car and I can afford much more car used than I can new.
So I'm thinking CL500 or similar.
my questions are;
What should I budget for annual maintenance?
Is maintenance much more for a MB than an American car?
Is the AMG package worth the price premium ? I am a leadfoot but performance per dollar does figure into the equation.
And also which models should a buyer stay away from?
Are the Daimler Chrysler models less reliable than the old Daimler Benz models?
Any other thoughts will be welcomed and cordially received.

Thanks in advance.
