This car was purchased with 23K
miles in 97. I initially was shocked
with some of the repairs i.e., motor
mounts relaced again after 5K.
Electrical flaw in the hatch $600. The
radiator neck broke twice along with
the fan and polybelt. Then at 76K the
4matic went out which was the
biggest hit of $2300. Other than
those items the car is a workhorse. I
plan to keep it for another four years
then sell it and buy a 2000CL500.
I should be able to afford one by
I use a wheelchair and the cargo
space is great for carrying items.
When you are sitting in the drivers
seat it feels like any other sedan and
not a soccer mom.
