My 2011 Ford Fusion SEL is overdue for an oil change RIGHT NOW. Within walking distance (across 8 lanes of traffic in every direction) there's a Wendy's, a Macaroni Grill, an IHOP, and a Red Lobster. So many choices!

Actually, I'll drop it off, get a ride to work, eat a sack lunch, get a ride back and pick up my car later, but I'm not an independently wealthy non-worker leisureperson with no obligations.

My car is french built but is owned by germans and the writing inside is german which is pretty neat.

Also it is a mercedes in my book because the mercedes logo is on a bunch of pieces

I've had German cars all my life and they are great up until the warranty expires and then literally every random bit and part you can think of breaks apart because they for some reason use lovely plastic connectors on EVERYTHING that turn brittle and crack apart.

Ditched the Audi after the coolant just all leaked out one day while driving normally on the freeway because whatever pipe/hose just finally gave out resulting in a bricked engine block. The Audi before that just randomly had the catcon explode, along with various other issues.

My dad's Mercedes had some fancy rear view mirror thing you adjusted via an electronic knob (cuz moving it by hand is not DEUTSCHE OVERENGINEERING) and when that broke they wanted $1200 to fix it. They're all expensive as gently caress to fix for no good reason bc as far as I can tell they use shithouse internal parts anyway.

German cars used to be good maybe but now they're just nice to lease for a couple years at best. They're always in the shop on some bullshit after that initial 1-2 years of being a good new car.

there's nothing wrong with owning a nice car if you want a nice car and can afford one. this isnt like a bugatti or something actually obscene. its just the s550 itself is pretty pleb

Pretty much. Google 'BMW Cooling Problems' for an even more ludicrous example of German cars using lovely plastics for everything.

An S550 is a loaded, fast, comfortable beast that costs $100k. They are not "pleb".

That being said, I sell cars for a living and I would only ever lease one; the maintenance and depreciation on them is loving bonkers. I wish Mercedes still made the tanks they used to, but the market for long-term luxury vehicles has dried up.
