Purchased the 2000 model because the Exterior design is exceptional plus always wanted a Mercedes. I purchased a one owner vehicle from Florida with over 100,000 miles, crazy right?! However the car looks no more than four years old and I have no concern that it is going to break down. If you do the standard A/B service and take care of the car you should have no trouble.
The Mercedes logo at the front of the hood! Leather seats are OK, certainly love the adjustments.
How about cup holders? I love a cup of coffee in the AM drive to work, could not believe it when I couldn't find it.
