The 1990 Mercedes Benz 560 SEL is the best vehicle I've ever owned
I had to replace the exhaust system - $2800.00 for the entire system.
I replaced the awful factory radio with a JVC touch screen CD changer.
I replaced tie rods & brake pads/rotors all around.
I replaced the fuel system/pumps/strainers/filters.
I LOVE this vehicle!!! It is what luxury is all about. It drinks a lot of premium gas, but on the road, nothing I've ever driven compares. You don't buy a car like this to blow people off the line (that's impossible without the AMG mods) but this baby accelerates with the best from 55 mph and up.
I only paid $5300 for mine & I intend to hold onto it as long as I can. I've turned down offers to buy it on a regular basis.
The only things I didn't like were the headlight wipers - they worked every now & then. I removed them & placed a replacement panel in their place.
I am averaging about 11 mpg in the city & 16 mpg on the highway, so it's not a car to be driving to the corner store in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
