1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 320 from North America
A hole in my wallet
Everything under the sun; you name, it seems like every month something goes bad, whether it's a turn signal, glove box latch or bulbs...
This is not the car for someone who does not like spending their life savings on maintaining it... You need really deep pockets to keep up with THIS baby... I guess hence the name Mercedes Benz...
Nice comfortable ride.
Transmission starting to go at 100k... everything else is great; the ride, the mileage on gas... only thing that sucks is the amount of money you have to shell out every time you fix the darn thing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I feel your pain. I once had an older E-class and it was a nightmare as well. My transmission only lasted around 100k miles also. People refuse to believe it's faulty engineering because IT'S A MERCEDES! Poo on Mercedes. Owners' words speak volumes about these cars.
If you're talking about a cheap Chevy that nickles and dimes you to death, that's one thing. But when you're talking about an expensive Mercedes that sucks your wallet dry when it needs ANYTHING, that's a whole other story.
