The number one thing is safety. I was in a head-on collision in 1990, effectively going 120 miles-per-hour when you add the speed of our two cars together, and I basically walked away unhurt. Both cars were totaled and all I needed was surgery on my little finger. Thank God, the other driver was okay, too. My son drives a Mercedes, and I feel so much better about it.
I also love the style, and even the history. Most people don’t know that Mercedes is the oldest car company in the world. That’s just kind of cool.
