Never and i mean never ever ever buy a V12 benz, one with ABC or one with run flat tire technology advised my best friend who is a factory trained tech for MB and on the board of the mb club ...i am not saying you have a v12 but the old engineering axiom applies here: "Complexity is the enemy of reliability"

Best used cars that have no maintenance drama if you want to survive an accident: 210 chassis v6, 123 chassis diesel, 124 diesel or a 212 chassis without direct injection, or 211 diesel without bluetec or 211 6 cyl gas....

Sporty models to get include first gen CLKs and 129 non V12 cars. Also the 463 G wagons of mid 2000s have robust drive trains but they go through brake pads quickly with a lot of city driving. Indestructable tanks though....

My teenager's first car was a 1995 E300 diesel. 700 miles on a tank of gas, modest acceleration and the car saved his life last summer when a construction truck turned right in front of him. Other driver cited. The paramedic who called me to inform me of the accident said that if my kid was in anything else except maybe a volvo, we would be having a much different conversation....
