1997 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S320 W140 SWB 3.2L inline 6 cylinder from North America
Last of the best!
Transmission electrical plate (twice).
Head gasket leaks.
Mass airflow sensor (three times - now carry a spare).
A/C condenser leak requiring major dash removal.
Nitrogen-filled cells for self-leveling system.
On its fourth set of front shocks and second set of rear hydraulic booster-shocks, but no complaints!
Going for the "Special Interest" license plates. Nothing newer has caused me to regret this purchase. Fortunately I have been able to do most repairs myself, so not paying outlandish $140/hour dealer prices.
Perhaps one of very few original owners of this model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
