I bought this car to use to commute to my job since my '04 Nissan Titan was robbing my wallet. I paid $5K for it and spent $500.00 on some CLK wheels and new tyres. It is totally awesome on fuel economy and rides very nice. I won a changer on Ebay and that's a nice option for sound options and just love it. I am so impressed with M-Benz that I am buying the ML430 as my SUV of choice.
The single windshield blade was way ahead of its time and sure keeps your vision clear. Love the blue shaded wing mirrors. Lots of truck space, and it's a great posh ride.
Rear suspension is a bit spongy and the wood dash by the stick cracks over age. Sunroof gets stuck on occasion, but hey it's 12 years old, I am not complaining.
