The Mercedes 126 S-Class of 1978-91 remains the most successful premium class saloon in the company’s history and is considered by many to be one of the best cars in the world. More than quarter of a century after the last one left the factory, close to a quarter of all 126s remain registered throughout the world. This book will enable you to avoid the most common pitfalls and faults that otherwise can ruin the ownership of a ‘Sonderklasse’. Packed with the sort of advice only normally obtainable from years of experience, it will act as your own personal marque expert. Specifications and valuations are included along with a detailed guide to buying the best car at the right price, and finally, how to keep your 126 fresh and reliable.
