My first MB.
1. Central air duct broken at delivery -
replaced at no cost (warranty).
2. Key receptor dead at 8000 miles -
replaced at no cost (warranty). Note:
Service arrived on the spot in < 10
minutes! Handled the case superbly.
Rides wonderfully. Seats are great
(lateral support + comfort). Steering
feel excellent. Brakes very good.
Stereo (BUT: NO CASSETTE NEEDED,
THANKS!) Very quiet, yet engaging.
Design, seats, build quality,
quietness, value, fun to drive with
manual transmission, gadgets
(integrated stereo-cell phone system,
programmable garage-door opener, seat
memories on front doors)
0. ADD 30 HP TO STANDARD ENGINE!
1. Tachometer very hard to see with

2. Right mirror view obstructed by

3. Cassette player obsolete! Replace
