My brother got the first production year 1991 500SEL and he hasn't had any major problems other than normal wear and tear on his. My guess is it's all pretty much depending on your luck much like picking the right watermelon that taste good. My brother uses his car mostly on the highway to the golf court, otherwise, he uses his BMW M3 most of the time.

I have an early 500sel, and every problem ever posted on this forum has appeared. I have gone tru the A/C rebuild, the BOSE amp, the closing pump twice, and MB spent all kinds of time on the vibration issue while under warranty. My wife loves the car, every time I want to get rid of it I get objections. It costs me $1500 a year on the average on maintenance it now has 72,000 miles and it is going in for lower bushings, I consider the suspension item (spheres) normal, plugs and caps, and belts and tensioners normal. It has gone thru window regulators, and some hoses.. make your own call.
