Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Reviews

This is a great car. Love its body style... presence but not over bearing Sleak stylish but elegant. Sophisticated but flamboyant. It has the "look".. no question... she is on the road... I am not a racer but I can get up and down the road. I have an issue coming up with the timing chain needing to be replaced... cost at the dealership is beyond the book value of the car.. after market foreign car tech will charge $800.00 installed with checking leakage and torgue and specs for that car.. hum!!! Sounds like I found the mechanic for this up coming repair.. OK nuff said... when working this is one of the best cars to drive for room and comfort.

This is a great car that is reliable, the main issue to this model are the standard high-mileage leaks from the valve cover gaskets. Some dealer parts are actually cheaper than aftermarket. In comparison to the 1994 BMW 740iL, it is cheaper to maintain and eventhough it has a 5.6 litre engine, burns less fuel.
