Welcome. Almost any Benz is a good choice. They are great cars. Reliable and solid.

Forums such as this are a good place to start but just be aware of one thing; the main reason people post on this forum or one like it is to get help for a maintenance problem. One can get a false sense of unreliability or difficulty to repair by reading the postings. When the car is running well and with no problems, people seldom post. I think if you find a similar forum for Fords or Chevys you would get the same impression.

Parts are readily available for even the oldest Benz and the cost is reasonable particularly if you shop the internet instead of going straight to the dealer. The older cars are also surprisingly easy to work on if you want to DIY.

We presently have a 2008 E320 deisel and a 1988 560SL. Although the E320 is a wonderful car, my personal preference is older models. I drive the 560SL daily and my favorite Benz sedan of all time is my old 1984 W123 300D.

Hope you decide to buy and join us.
