I love MBenz but do not have time to worry about one breaking down. Had a 1992 300TE 4matic and it was a fix it nightmare.
So I am looking again for a new one. I like these models 300CE, 300SDL, 300SEL, 400E, 420SEL and the 560SEC. I am looking on autotrader.com and have found several in each category but I just want to know this--of the above models what is the most reliable one and least expensive to work on. And if I am barking up the wrong tree what would be the best family car for someone who travels alot and wants something reliable and fix it affordable.
Thanks all

Anything late model can have more expensive problems than something 20 years old. Its the electronics thats the problem.
I know someone who used to run taxi's in Berlin over 20 years ago and he used to buy a new model every 1-2 years but now has gone back to a 1987 300D as he says the newer cars lack quality and reliability.

But if you have money to burn you buy what you want.
