Great Luxury Vehicle, Drives Smooth
This vehicle drives very smoothly including during winter conditions. . It is an all-wheel drive vehicle. The car feels light and comfortable to drive. I have driven plenty of other vehicles, but this vehicle drives the smoothest for me. It accelerates and brakes very smoothly and you will not feel a 'jump' unlike other cars I have driven. Some good things about this vehicle is that it locks automatically, it has a sunroof, audio is clear, and has bright interior lights. At night, the headlights is also bright, making it easy to drive in darker roads. One disadvantage of it being an older car is the fact that it has no Bluetooth capability to play songs from your phone. It has the capability of receiving calls, but I have not been able to make it work. Every time I have tried, it cannot connect my phone. Maintenance can be expensive for this vehicle since Mercedes parts are on the high-end side. For example, to replace the front and rear brakes costs me $400 for parts and $200 for labor. I have had to change the brakes three times since 2011. With the car being 8 years old, I have come across only a few issues, but the costs of the parts and labor were expensive which is expected because of the luxury brand. I have had to change the front motor which costs $400 for a generic brand and $800 for Mercedes brand. I opted to use the generic brand and it worked fine.
