The car has been very fun to drive and
reliable! It is a second car, so I do
not drive it in the New England winters
due to road salt, ice, etc. If you want
ultimate reliability, get a Toyota. My
previous car was a 1995 C-220 that was
slow. This 2000 Kompressor Sport
Special Edition (two-tone leather
seats) model is a rocket, with lots of
torque to climb hills or pass. Even at
partial throttle it goes like a scalded
cat! It also has MB's reputation,
class, and styling to boot.
Hope you are fortunate enought to find
a good deal on one of these.
Power (both torque and horsepower),
bank vault solid ride, sporty look and
feel yet 4-doors for soon-to-be wife
and eventual kids.
Not possible as the car is no longer
produced, but temperature settings on
the manual air conditioning thumbwheels
(65-75-85) would have been a nice
touch. I saw this in a MB A160 I drove
in the UK (mini-minivan).
Also adding an automatic fan speed
function would have been nice.
