I work in IT and I have 3 MB so far. My first was a 97 C230 black. Drove that car for 150k than sold it. The second was an 2001 ML320 silver, the kids loved it but it was a money pit, everything imaginable was replaced on that vehicle and some twice, never again. The third and my present car is a 2003 C320 desert silver (gold really). So far it has been a reliable car but there are some quirks.
