Liability Insurance costs on Mercedes are actually lower than on lot of other brands.
I don't remember paying $3000 for none of my son, but than my zip gives me lower rates as well.
Having 2 sons getting cars in last decade I can vouch that unless they buy a car with their own earned money, they will not care about it. I have a gate that occasionally require backing up to drive thru, my oldest one driving given El Camino figured out that scratching the paint on the wooden gate is less time consuming than switching to reverse.
It wasn't till be bought sporty Mitsubishi with his own money when he ever open the hood to check the engine.
My youngest doesn't care about his drive and I had to call him to help me with brake jobs, but he is good student, so he is getting away with it.
