New from Texas

Greaat Forum! Have never owned a Benz but have decided to hunt down a CL63 for the DD. Know nothing about the car but like what I see. All suggestions and comments welcome.

First question - As to a used car, any year to avoid?

Question 2 - Car will see many HWY miles. Any special feature to look for?

My car history has been vettes and Ford GT. Looking forward to the 63.

Thanks for any help.

You would have to be a little more specific as their are a lot of Models in the Benz range and the year you are seeking is also important.

My problem is I dont know the MB models.

Car will be DD for long vacant Texas road trips. The bigger car the better.

Coupe or sedan - probably go with coupe. 63 I think? That is the big coupe correct?

Change wheels/tires - I would explore the options.

Would consider 2009,10,11 or 12.

I apologize for the vagueness but my learning curve is vertical!
