New Member Here - How many miles should I expect to realistically get

Hello! I was given a 1997 S320 by my parents when they decided to buy a newer Mercedes. It has roughly 169,000 miles on it and my parents were religious about routine maintenance. I have heard that Mercedes will go forever but I was wondering if there is any truth in that. I assume that maintenance has a lot to do with it, but was wondering what I could realistically expect as in terms of life of the vehicle. Thanks so much!!

Welcome!

To answer your question......the key is regular and preventive maintanance! Look around here, each car has its own unique issues (head gasket on your's).
