Mercedes 300SE Coupe - it starts off brilliantly, but one needs to read further. I think it's Sales Talk extraordinary of a model that, as a rule, can be simply magnificent. This one isn't, but I will let you be the judge.

I used to own the Sedan version - great family car, very reliable. I did find out that Air Bags have a life span of about five years. I had one blow in the carport of my home, and honestly I though that someone had tried to blow up the house. The air suspension worked brilliantly, but an original rear valve featuring a vulcanized rubber seal turned out to be unrepairable. Replacement cost of a new unit was about $6K. - for one valve. Food for thought. Regards Styria
