Looking out for interchangeable components that can be sourced at lower costs, simply because some shops would charge more for the same part if it's meant to be used in a Merc than in a Chevette or some Volkswagen from the '80s, is also a good way to decrease the maintenance cost. OTOH at least in my country, most Mercedes owners are not so inclined to DIY.

Funny you mention there Colt, my dad bought a Plymouth Arrow new in '77. Mitsubishi engine, 4 speed RWD. Hard to find these days. Dad put close to 170k before he parked it. Too rusty to drive anymore. Lots of memories in it.
