1986 Mercedes-Benz S-Class SEL 420 from North America
One word: MAGNIFICENT!!!
The timing chain let go at 148,000 miles causing major engine failure. I had no idea this could happen. Up to this point the engine was perfect!
This is the most incredible Mercedes I have ever owned. I highly recommend it, if you can still find one in good condition. That is the reason I replaced the engine after the problem rather than replacing the car!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
