    1998 DeVille D'Elegance

    I purchased this vehicle from a local Mercedes/BMW Dealer after many weeks of searching newspaper ads and the internet I had narrowed the list to just 4 cars, 2 Eldorado's and 2 DeVille's. I paid around $9500 for the car about a month ago with just under 60,000 miles on it. I now have just under 61,000 miles on it. So far I have repaired:

    4 Wheel Alignment
    Rotate / Ballance all 4 tires
    Oil Change - Mobil 1 10w30
    New rear brake pads

    Body is in 98% new condition few minor scratches and a small scrape on the front bumper all from the previous owner.

    Interior looks new except for some wear on the front seats, I'd say the drivers seat is 90% and the passengers is 92%.

    Pros: Awesome power for a large car, very good fuel economy (26-28 on the highway doing 80+), very comfortable, great sounding stereo for factory (11 speaker system with CD/Cassette & RDS), very predictable durring cornering.

    Cons: Takes premium fuel, expensive oil changes (7 1/2 quarts), parts & repairs can be expensive, looses value quickly.

    Overall: Great car for the money, seems very responsive when you step on it, virtually no delay from pedal press to speeding ticket

    Would I do it again after knowing what I've learned on this site? Absolutley!

    Thanks for sharing the info, 98D. You've got the "wrinkles" ironed out and now you can totally enjoy it! A very nice little touch for the leather can be obtained via: Leatherique.com They have been in the business since 1968 and I ordered and used a small amount of the two main products after trying all kinds of other leather products. Check their site and read their info.-it is second to none. Are those important Florida vehicles still "yellow and black'?
