Make a note we dont have lexus dealers in venezuela, but who needs it.
Of the americans i do like the Ford F-150 very nice truck
I do like the felling of a mercedes, but i hate the felling when it leaves me on the side of the road, it only gets worst after a couple of weeks at the dealer.
I am considering a good used 560sec 1991. After that i dont think a mercedes is worth the problems.
