I do not go car searching I go soul searching. A car represents who I am, it is a piece of me. Through the late 60's and early 80's Mercedes made some fine machines. Built like a tank, and so much character. Just my humble opinion Mercedes don't make em like they used to. The older Mercedes were much more reliable, much more than just the badge. The badge stood for quality, you felt it inside and out. Recently Mercedes has been making cars that are impossible to work on yourself and extremely expensive to fix. With there new computer systems so many things can and will go wrong making the newer Mercedes very unreliable. I can see why you would own one. Shouldn't just bash on Mercedes though because most American and Euro cars have gone down hill. Sure there fine cars until something goes wrong. Mercedes in the present has definitely turned into a symbol for the wealthy to flash, theres no denying it. El Cid I'm not defending your point you are simply an example.
