I have never owned a MB but I am looking at a mid 1980s SL for weeked use weather permitting. Looking at what is available they seem awfully inexpensive whether it is 380, 450 or 560. I'm looking at these because I want a convertable, classic looks, quality product and reasonable mileage.
Just started getting educated on MB and was surprised at the prices.
Thanks

Beside being over 30 years old?
Go to the model section that you are trying to review and they usually have common problems already covered.
Time travel or age reversing not included.

They're just at the bottom of their worth right now because they're not quite classics(to others), none of them could really be considered fuel efficient, the economy is piss poor, and there were large numbers of them made. The best condition ones still fetch a pretty good buck.

'80s era Mercedes are better than the mid-90s and up through the mid-2000s. Avoid the ones manufactured during the Chrysler era.
