Pros: "drives n rides smooth like its brand new!"

Cons: "no ac, cant figure it out"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"me, personally, thinks it is a pretty good real reliable luxery kinda car! for the the year n how old it is n the mileage that is on it, have to say it runs pretty freakin good n if u seen it with ur own eyes n drove it yourself i may think n believe that u would agree with me n think the same thing as i do! not too much rust or anything with the paint, has some real nice shiny crome wheels n real good tires, moon roof, electric everything, real big trunk space, its got pretty much everything for stock wise that is, spacious, clean, smooth, its alright on gas kinda, good heat, the only thing that we dont have or we just cant figure it out is the AC...it says n has an option for air conditioning but it doesnt really work n it rides so smooth on the highway too!! just like a bird in the wind n just sailing or flying through the air!! overall, all im trying to say is that i was not expecting to see the car in such good condition as it is in or how it drives n rides once u get behind the wheel, especially for the mileage thats on it for it being a 97', almost 20 yrs old already n its still runs n treats u good like it was a brand new mercedes!! dont have any pics online right now but if u in the area u have to look in person to believe me when i tell u that its a real good car for it being an older mercedes!! u will be suprised to see what it looks like n see what im telling u just like i was when i first seen it so come check it out n see for yourself!!"

"In 30 years of driving and 20 cars owned, this is the best car I have ever owned. The ride is comfortable, the handling is great for a sedan. It is powerful and agile yet still fuel efficient. V8 power with 28mpg. The Harmon Kardon/Bose sound system coupled with an interior void of road noise is unparalleled. I will definitely buy another Benz."

"Bought new in July 1996. Our daily driver and long-distance traveler until wee started traveling in our Porsche Cayman. It has been a great car. Start decision to get. Glad we got the big V-8 engine. Get reasonable mpg, but it does take premium fuel."

Shines like the star it is.

"I've had this car for a year. At 121000 miles it's like it's just breaking in. No major problems at all and actually rates 22 city and 27 hiway on gas mileage. 24 combo. Great handling, easy to work on, and classy. I still turn heads with it. If you want one, just make sure it was maintained properly or you could run into some costly replairs."
