I would suggest looking at the "" website.

They have a significant amount of Cost of Ownership information on many different types of cars.

I am a serious car collector and enthusiast. Consequently, some of my best friends are auto designers. No matter which automaker they work for, all of them have agreed, again and again, that Mercedes is the best engineered car in the world.

I can tell you from personal experience that this is accurate. I have an '89 420SEL that I use for my everyday driving. I have followed the maintenance schedule since '89. I have put over 174,000 miles on it and it still runs and looks like new - original engine, original transmission, original interior, original paint - you get the idea!
