I have now owned this car for 2 1/2 years and thought an update would be appropriate. I purchased this car in Honolulu but have since moved to the mainland. This car has been from Louisiana to California twice and to Chicago and back once. All three of these trips averaged around 29 MPG, with an average speed nearing 75 MPH! Not bad. The last trip was a 1705 mile trip over two days; I had no back pain with very few stops. This car does have more creaks and rattles than I would like, is very small, and doesn't handle much luggage, but for a work day runner and with the cost of gas today, I still made a fantastic choice.
Gas mileage, sunroof, nimble feel on the road, no worries due to maintenance plan.
Several improvements are necessary. The sound system quality in this car is pathetic and I admit, I listen to it very little due to this. The tires placed on the car new only got 21,000 miles before they were bald. Too many rattles for a Mercedes Benz. Would I buy it again? Maybe?
