currently drive the 83 300SD
Why are you flipping all these cars? They perform much better when they're on all fours (tires that is). Just kidding, hope everyone is okay.
Electrical problems were Mercedes biggest flaw that started mostly in 2003 and were mostly straightened out by 05-06. MBs reliability and image was hugely tarnished by this. Hopefully they recover, either way I'll still be driving my 25 year old MB diesels long after all these new cars are gone

to easy to total in a minor accident because of how safe they are (crumple zone destroys engine and chasi)

You and your friend needs to reconsider your driving style. Cracked head is not a good thing to have.

Thats why I love MB. I know I'm pretty safe inside. Of course at some of the speeds I go I'm not so sure.

I dislike how expensive everything is to fix. Oh well.

Ok, it’s been ten years since this issue was raised. Has MB improved, how did they do it? This is my first Mercedes. I’ve had some minor electrical issues, but, I am happy with looks and ride.
