Review
I caught this bright red beauty a year ago at a local Ford dealer for an awesome price and have never regretted the choice. Even though it's "only" a 2.2 liter four, the performance is amazing. Fuel economy is 25 around town and I've hit as high as 35 on the highway and average 30 overall. The only mechanical gripe is the Check Engine light which has been on and off since I bought it. The local MB dealer charged a single $37.50 diagnostic fee and has had it on the computer several times (at no additional charge!) but still can't figure out what's causing it. He drove it and pronounced it healthy so I'll live with it until he figures it out.
Favorite Features
It's a Benz -- 'nuff said! Uses NO oil between 5000 mile changes! The MB dealer's labor rates are the lowest in town! Smooth interstate cruiser but handles the twisties like a sports car!
Suggested Improvements
That Check Engine light is annoying. The infra-red remote keyfob stinks -- and is grossly over-priced. MB should also lose the old cartridge oil filters; it's a pain to change and overpriced. There's no reason to not use a spin-on unit these days.
