I leased this car in February, replacing an '04 Mercedes E3204matic with 90k+ miles. This vehicle is very well priced; about $10k less than similiarly equipped Mercedes or BMWs. Performs as advertised (0-60 at 5.8 seconds), with better than advertised highway mileage (approx 29 mpg at 69 mph on PA, MD and VA highways). Run flat tires are a mixed blessing: they have peace of mind with better than expected winter performance (experienced a major blizzard in PA with 18 wheelers jackknifing around me), but they are noisy and harder on bumps. Everybody who sees the car likes its appearance and color (Opaline Pearl), and the interior holds four people adequately (headroom could be improved).
Value. Highway gas mileage/performance. Navigation system/blue tooth. front/rear sensors and back up camera. Keyless entry and start. Run-Flat tires (peace of mind). Interior storage is good.
Runflat tires (noise and hard). Seat cushion support. Side view mirrors do not angle down far enough when backing up by a curb. Rain sensing windshield wipers are temperamental. Improve trunk access/room. Increase headroom. Add adaptive cruise control. City mpg only fair(15mpg). Delete seatbelt chime.
