So, I'm thinking about buying a Mercedes. But I'm not a car nut. I don't know or care anything about high performance, horsepower, and all that cam-head nonsense. I just want a nice car, and have always liked the Mercedes. But I don't really know a lot about them currently.
I'd appreciate any information on the pros and cons, good and bad, etc... of the Mercedes line-up. Any models or model years that I should specifically avoid for any reason? The things I care most about are, in no particular order:
The ability to blow anybody away on the road or on the dyno is of no interest to me. As long as I have the power to pass slow pokes without throwing a rod, that's enough for me, so a six cylinder sounds ideal.
The C class looks like what I want. I don't have a family, so room isn't a huge deal. Although, I like the M class SUV too, and am looking at those also.
So, any opinions on any models, any engines, or any other recommendations or advice regarding Mercedes driving or ownership at all is truly appreciated!
