Great car for travel and family.

The Mercedes is a luxury car so you have to treat it like one. It's hard to steer and foot has to put a lot of pressure on the pedal. Its had many mechanical and electrical issues. The ride is smooth, you have pretty good technology inside for 2003 year and good gas mileage.

- Caleb F

The Mercedes is very efficient for travel and it gets excellent gas mileage.

The mechanics of the vehicle are great, it runs really well and floats like a boat, but the electronics on the car make it more work than it's worth. You cannot put any type of additional speakers or the basic functions; such as brakes and lights, of the car start to fail.

- Jay R

The car is expensive to operate especially if you need to replace parts.

I love the comfort and luxury of my car. I have owned it for 1 1/2 years now. I am so pleased. The only problem is of course having to purchase premium gas which is very expensive. Any parts needs for the car are of course very expensive being a foreign car.
