A beautiful,well engineered car that can give much pleasure and reliable service
Rear suspension needed replacing.
Sun roof seal failed and leaked water.
My W116 is very nimble for a big car and is very manoeuverable, with a small turning circle.
Handles very well and is safe and easy to drive.
Is very comfortable, quiet and they always look very classy. Shop around and be prepared to pay extra for one that is in top condition, it will save you money in the long run as parts and dealer service can be quite expensive. If maintained well they represent good safe motoring value. If you are going to buy one, my advice is to spend the money to get a dealer to check it out before you purchase as they know what to look for and how much a fault will cost to fix. Get a good one with no rust, manual windows with low kms, they are around.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
