Want to be a Mercedes owner again. Need some advice
I used to own a 89 190E 2.6 when I was in the US about 11 years ago. I sold that one before moving to canada and got a 2001 C240. I sold that one also after keeping it for about 4 years and then went a completely different route. Now I want to get back into owning a Merc again. I want it as a summer weekend car and not a DD. I initially started looking into 190E's as I owned one before ,but am unable to find one in a fairly good condition. I guess its very hard to find one in reasonable condition as the last model was manufactured 23 years ago.
So I decided to look into E320 since it was one of my favorite benz back then and still is. But it seems like their market value is higher than other models and a few of them available here in Canada are out of my range. Than my brother told me about 95 or 96 S class and spoke really highly of it. According to him its one of the best benz ever built and are not very expensive either. I have looked up a few online near my area and want to go look at them in person this coming weekend. at the same time, I am a little scared also to get something that turns out to be a total money pit.
I am just wondering if 1stly there are any for sale on this site in Canada as the cars sold here are mostly owned by enthusiasts and are in better condition. Secondly i'll appreciate any input/suggestions from other members about the S class in terms of experience of owning one and its problems.
Thanks in advance everyone.
