Been looking for a car. My friend has been selling me on the idea of getting a used Mercedes. I've been hunting around for a "baby Benz". The models I've looking at range from 1986 to 1993. The price range is between $3000 to $12000. I'm shooting for the $4000 to $8000 range (this is all Canadian$). From what I've read and heard is that they are very reliable and luxurious. I've seen ads for cars with over 300,000km (~180,000 miles). Stuff doesn't break often but when it does, it comes at a high cost. Any horror stories? Any good stories? Anything that I should be aware of when shopping?
