48000 mile critique

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)
This is my second MB, and I leased it new. It was fairly bulletproof for 3yrs, but has had lots of problems in the last year. Most of the problems are associated with electronic systems, the key, one touch sunroof closure, etc. A great car in many ways, but beginning to be an aggravation, so I'm glad it's leased. Dealer service has been exceptional--always a loaner- and a great track record in dealing with problems beyond their control.
Rain sensitive wipers. Nice, quiet, smooth ride and handling.
Go back to the basics and return to the days when MBs were built like bank vaults.
