Got it instead of a loaded Passat.
Fell in love with the handling, the
pick up, and how quiet it is. Now that
I have had it for almost 6 months, the
true mass market to America is
rearing its ugly head. Mercedes cannot
seem to get the rattles fixed, the A/C
is spazzing out, the sunroof shade
sticks and sounds like a shotgun going
off when the spring pulls it away, and
the cupholder is already jamming up.
This is a great car performance wise
(quick, great cornering, and quiet),
but not worth the 31k that I spent. I
am probably going to sell it now
before the 2003's come out,so I can
get the best bang for my buck.
quickness, quiet (minus rattles),
fix the rattles (c'mon this is
mercedes) my 83' 300D had less
rattling in it, a/c st-st-st-stutters,
better sunshade engineering, front
load cd, get rid of the cheap
cupholder and put in one that actually
lasts longer than 5 months,
