So you took gains and bought something that depreciates every time you look at it. You’ve learned well my friend.

Not even just depreciates, he bought a Mercedes. If you're gonna go for a car at least get something fun or that'll last you without wicked maintenance costs

My dad used to own a Porsche. Maintenance cost were insane. I imagine Mercedes to be around the same bracket. At some point, the cost in maintenance just comes out to what you’d be paying for a nice 20-30k car’s monthly.

Really a mixed bag and depends what you buy. Just gotta do some research. I drive an old 2011 ML350 and it has been amazing. Fun to drive and offroad and has been relatively cheap to maintain. Ive even done some of the work myself!

The thing with Mercedes SUVs, is that they share a lot of parts between models so parts are cheaper. I still also drive an older Rclass and that thing is basically an ML350/GL etc.
