Solid vehicle, runs like a charm. Had to replace the back window motor (very common according to Benz mechanics) If you're handy, go to a junkyard and save a ton of dough. I am the 3rd owner, and all maintanance is kept up. Only drawback is finding oil/lube places to carry an oil filter, call ahead and problem solved. Make sure you have the correct tire iron also, not all Benz tire irons will fit the 190e. We use it as our everyday car and love it!
Solid feel. Thump of doors makes the car sound solid also. Stylish design never looks outdated. Most Benz owners take care of their vehicles.
Too late to complain about the power window motors, apparently Mercedes Benz has resolved that problem. Nothing to complain about a $35K luxury car that you can own nowadays for about $3K in great condition.
