Long-time Mercedes driver
I'm new to this forum, but certainly not new to Mercedes! Took my California drivers license test in 1976 in my parents 1971 Mercedes 220. After I totalled that car (long story), my folks bought a 1973 280. They traded that in on a 1986 300E. Each car I got to drive.
I bought myself a 1978 350SE (grey market), and my wife owned a 1976 450SEL when I met her.
Amazing cars! Every one an engineering marvel.
Today, I own a 2000 ML430. Not quite the same level of quality as my previous cars, but solid as a rock!
Despite its reputation, I find Mercedes to be one of the easiest cars to work on! I do as much of my own work as time, and tools, allow. Getting information on how to do things isn't always easy though. Which is one reason why I'm here.
