Review

this was my 3rd turbo diesel... i researched it hard and even called my MBZ mechanic about this model before purchase. he neglected to tell me about the head issue common on these models! blew the head gasket on the way back from picking it up. car had only 42K miles on it. cost me many thousand of dollars to repair... needless to say, i sold it shortly there after.

Review

My father-in-law bought the car new and treated it like his baby. He became ill and gave me the car a few years ago. After 6 months of getting the car acclimated to the road again, I have had zero problems. It starts easily in all weather and is an absolute pleasure to drive. On the highway, it cruises effortlessly. I concur with the cup holder comment. The headlights could also be brighter. However, that being said, I love the car and expect it to last for many, many years.

Review

Only had the the car for a year but virtually no problems mechanically speaking. Gets amazing mileage for a brick on wheels (low to mid 30's normally), driving in snow and ice with so much torque in the rear end takes some getting used to but its for your own good. Honestly when they say they don't build them like they used to this is the perfect example.

Review

I hear a lot of people complaining about this car. Personally I love the thing, it's great on gas, and is very smooth. But, it is also supposedly the worst diesel ever made by Mercedes because of the weaker connecting rods in the engine. Apparently they bend and the car starts to burn oil. I would rev the car up very slowly and watch for plumes of smoke coming out of the exhaust at certain rpm's. If they are there, that would mean that the rods are bent and the engine is going to go real soon. Buyer beware.

Have had the car for years - now 256K miles and have not had any problems to speak of since other than normal maintenance. It still rides like it did when it was 1 year old.

My Mercedes is about to turn 200,000 miles, and I have had very, very few mechanical problems with it - other than scheduled maintenance. I was told Mercedes quit building a diesel (until just this year) because they simply last too long. If mine is any indication, I believe it.

Review

For pure comfort, stability, quality of construction, economy and reliability - - and residual value -- there may not have been a better car manufactured with a sticker price of under $100,000. Okay, so it's a diesel and slow getting away at the light, but tenacious in snow and ice -- and safe. Bought it new; expect it to outlive me.
