Legendary mercedes-benz quality and reliability for a reasonable price.

It is an amazing vehicle. Legendary mercedes-benz quality and reliability. Supercharged 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine. Great gas mileage plus the automatic transmission makes driving easier in stop-and-go traffic and on hilly roads. Awesome ride and comfort with the rear wheel drive. Sport suspension makes the car handle like a dream. Leather interior. Power seats. Navigation system. Great sound system. All in all, a quality vehicle for a reasonable price.

Great car mechanically. Goodbye

Cars now has 127000. It runs very good for being a 14 year old car. The finish work on interior and anything plastic on the car has dry rotten and broken. From the armrest to the door handles in the inside of car. This might be due to living in South Florida with no tints on the car. I purchased the car about year ago with 120000 miles. It has been a joy to drive as this car pulls from the rear.

This year does not have Bluetooth capability for audio or aux jacks.

Electronic ignition module went out and cost 1800 to repair at Mercedes. sunroof motor is iffy sometimes works sometimes not. As long as routine maintenance is done car runs like a champion. Maintenance is fairly costly due to being foreign luxury. Leather really holds up in this Arizona heat and the windshields are very durable as well.
