1979 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 350SE V8 gas from North America
Brake have gone bad.
Bad on gas - 13 to the mile.
Will not start when it is below 0.
Muffler fell off.
Not the best in the snow.
This car is big - it sits up high and I feel like a king when I drive it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The 350 has never sold in the US as a brand new: only the 280, 450, 450 6.9 and 300 diesel turbo. Did you buy it from Europe or another country? If yes, probably the car was not correctly serviced: this is my thought, keeping in particular the low mileage (13 MPG) and the difficulties to start at low temperature. You should verify the engine compression ratio, too.
