I kind of stumbled on my first Benz while looking for a 3 or 5-series BMW. It was my first car I'd purchased from a dealer and my Dad was feeling generous to help, so I cashed in.
The car, a '99 c-class, was great until it was struck side-on by another vehicle-- totalling it and in any other vehicle, killing me. I used the proceeds to purchase my '01 c that I have now. I figured the first had saved my life and that I'd get a lot of milage out of the second on top of the safety benefits.
Aside from the crazy electrical gremlins and numerous repairs the car is decent. It's caused quite a deal of stress too. I don't think I would buy into the new c-class (don't like the look, way too muscular, no finesse,) but will probably go for a W-211 instead when my financial situation picks up.
Eventually I'd like to make it to the S-class, but def. not for a while.
