1985 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 560SEL from North America
I would never buy another one, but heck, it had it charms and I miss it
Bruned and leaked more oil then I thought possible.
Electrical problems too numerous to list.
My father bought the car for himself, but upon realizing the extant of the problems and the extreme costs of a gray market car, he gave it to me. This was while I was in 11th grade and the car did serve as a daily driver. However it had so many electrical problems that I had to buy fuses in bulk (I'm not joking) because once a night it would blow the fuel pump fuse and simply stall out.
3 of the 4 windows stopped working, but the sunroof and reclining back seat never gave me a problem.
It burned a quart of oil a day, and upon accelerating would emit a plume of smoke so bad that it could not be seen through. I called it my James Bond car, Oil Slick and a Smoke Screen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
