What a great purr that 4 cylinder has. Sounds like a little tiger who will soon growl on the highway, which it does! Good kick, great handling, interior is just classy enough without overdoing it. I drive it to work every morning and it brings a smile to my face, which is good for my employees ;) I've had it for a year now and I enjoy every minute of it. It has been reliable, except for the wiper motor that suddenly died on me. MB said it was due to ice being stuck...funny enough I park my car in the garage. A fun car to have for zipping in traffic or passing on the highway. I recommend the purchase.
Sound of the motor. Although car critics think it's annoying, I enjoy hearing it every time I start the car or push it on the highway. Simplicity of the interior, yet with a touch of class. Definitely a classy European. The Kompressor's ability to kick when you need it
The paint seems cheaper than previous MB models. Poor stereo (no CD!) had to put in a sub in the trunk for a "serious" sound. Get rid of the hubcap and put mags for a classier look
