repairs so far - differential whine -
replaced p Gears; rear seals leaked -
replaced; 4 new shocks; OE Micehelin
sports dead after 9000 miles; replaced
computer; replaced CD; replaced
cupholder. Interior squeaks and
rattles will drive you nuts. Engine is
crudely loud and exhaust note is
tinny. Gear shift is notchy. However -
handles very well, has good power and
gets great gas mileage. My first and
likely last MB.
Handling, power, mileage, warranty.
refinements to engine, improve overall
build quality, retune exhaust, stop
using Michelin tires, go to Japan and
learn how to build a shift linkage.
