A magnificent cruiser with real pedigree
There is a noise from the rear suspension when a wheel hits a sharp bump in the road.
The dash had a couple of cracks extending from where the speaker covers are situated.
It uses a bit of oil.
I love this car. I have looked at buying a W126 or W123 for about the past 10 years, and finally found myself an example that is in fabulous condition.
The service history is perfect, and I have carried on the getting serviced at my local dealership. While the labour isn't cheap, I know the car is worth the extra cost.
This car is lovely on the open road. It's so quiet for a 21 year old car, and doesn't use too much fuel. Once up to speed, the performance is more than acceptable.
I get plenty of positive comments about the car. I can see myself still driving this car in 20 years. I got the dash cracks fixed before I purchased the car, and have fitted an after market stereo head unit. I love it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
