The W126 may be the best car ever built by any manufacturer
Gas tank seam leak.
Minor coolant leak (cheap repair).
Heated seat relay. $25 for a used part on eBay that works perfectly.
Rear windshield delamination caused the rear defroster to not work on the top half. New windshield replaced for about $200.
Chrome insert from front bumper rusted; replaced with NOS.
Rear power window motor replaced with a used part.
Hood insulation replaced.
Fuel pump relay, $110 total parts and labor.
Fuel pressure regulator replaced due to a small gas leak. New OEM part was $280 parts and labor.
Front and rear suspension repairs, totaling under $1000.
The best car I have ever owned; I love it.
Cruises down the highway at 85 like a locomotive; great car for a long road trip.
Repairs have been very reasonable using an independent Mercedes mechanic.
Transmission, engine, braking, and steering are all flawless; hard to believe it's a 25 year old car with 150,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
