Mercedes and luxury go hand in hand with each other. The brand has made a name for itself, over the years, as one of the world’s leading premium car manufacturers. Such a feat wasn’t easy to achieve as the German marque fought against the likes of Rolls Royce and Bentley to hold such a high station.
Mercedes-Benz never found it hard to be successful. The brand came into existence in 1926 and immediately made its way into the headlines. The instant spotlight was due to the marque’s rich history. It was Karl Benz, the founder, who made the first internal combustion in the late 1800s that propelled Mercedes’s fame to extreme heights. So, it is natural that people trust Mercedes-Benz and their products.
The luxury German auto manufacturer is known not only for its premium vehicles like the S-class and the E-class but also for its reliability. The fact is, many manufacturers make cars, but not all of them produce reliable automobiles. Moreover, Mercedes is the pinnacle of German engineering, so you always get top-class performance from their vehicles.
Therefore, the Mercedes-Benz line-up is highly diverse with vehicles like the G-wagon SUV, the S-Class sedan, and the SLS sports car among the fan favorites. Other than these, you have the high-performance AMG variants, ultra-luxury Mercedes-Maybach models, and the delectable cabriolet trims. All of these Mercedes cars not only last a lifetime, but they provide the most delightful experience to the driver and the passengers.
Earlier, the German marque restricted themselves to sedans and cabriolets, but as the trend picked up, they shifted their focus to other avenues. Currently, Mercedes makes sports cars, executive cars, and off-road capable SUVs. What’s not to like about them?
For the avid enthusiast, Mercedes-Benz makes the AMG-GT. The car is built for the kill in every sense. It is mean-looking, but more than that, it is a performance machine that delivers in any situation. The AMG GT competes against some of the best super cars in the world but its position is cemented in place thanks to the AMG badge and the performance that goes with it.
The durable G-wagon is another people’s favorite. The SUV defines Mercedes’s commitment to producing the best and nothing else. The G63, for example, is a great contender in the luxury SUV market. The vehicle looks incredibly beautiful, it houses a relentless V8 bi-turbo engine under its hood, and it can conquer almost any terrain imaginable. It doesn’t matter if you are driving on the road, in gravel, or the mud, the G-wagon will not disappoint.
Up-next and perhaps the most well-known vehicle by Mercedes is the S-Class sedan. The up-class car has everything you would imagine in a luxury vehicle. The exterior design is as beautiful as they come, the interior one of the most luxurious and the performance out-class. The S-class sedan represents Mercedes’ soul and their philosophy of giving only the best to their customers.
If you are looking for something even better, Mercedes-Maybach’s re-do of the S-Class is a must-buy. Mercedes leaves no stone unturned when it comes to producing their vehicles. But their luxury subsidiary believes something more can always be added to the car to make it more appealing. The Maybach variant is ridiculously well-built and filled to the brim with high-performance and luxury features.
Have you ever heard of a Mercedes breaking down? We don’t know about you, but that sounds almost alien to us. It’s because a Mercedes-made vehicle hardly requires repairs. Their automobiles are reliable, dependable, and long-lasting. But ultimately a car is a machine and machines need regular maintenance to function properly. You can’t expect your vehicle to run forever without you taking care of it. Therefore, you must either perform routine inspections or take your Mercedes vehicle to the nearest mechanic for a complete service.
Common Issues with Mercedes Vehicles
Mercedes-Benz vehicles are so long-lasting that one of the first issues that arises is related to rust. You will find ancient Mercedes cars on the roads, running like their new, with rust on the floor, doors, and the trunk. You might experience this a lot if you live in a country where it rains profusely. If you keep your car under shade, protect it against the elements, and inspect the bodywork regularly, such a problem might never materialize.
Moreover, some Mercedes vehicles have oil-filled engine mounts. The oil is put in place to minimize engine vibrations. Naturally, this system fails after 100,000 to 150,000 miles, and you have to get it checked before the vibrations become uncontrollable.
Suspension failure is also pretty common among Mercedes vehicles, but the issue is not that pronounced until later in the car’s life. You can prevent any problems by choosing the right mechanic for your vehicle.
