Fun car. Lots of power. Reliable. Purchased extednded warranty. I do think its needed and we have used it. Car is very comfortable & quiet. Excellent safety features abound. Very solid performer. Enjoy

Replacing passenger door electric
window motor has been frustrating.
Dealer service cut the leather then
they broke every speaker grill (3) at
the next three appointments. They
replaced damaged wood trim on door and
seat function panel. Always delivered
car with grease spots everywhere they
touched it and really did not care.
Finally the center console split in
half and needed replacement. Strange
vibrations from wheels in the mornings
that the dealer blames on low battery
charge? The paasenger door is still not
right but no body including MB cares.

M-B has sometime in the last few years
lost its commitment to quality control
and reliable design.
Problems in first 30 days: picked it
up on a Friday afternoon - returned it
immediately: the brake lights didn't
function. Picked it up on Tuesday:
returned it later the same day when it
exhibited a disturbing vibration at
highway speed. (poorly aligned drive
shaft)Next drive showed the car
handled extremely poorly. (M-B
dilivered the car with a cheap set of
tires not suitably rated) A few
mornings later (with only 150 miles on
the vehicle) the car was totally dead
in my garage. The dealer claims it
was "only" a bad battery.

The best car that I have ever owned.
The most fun car to drive. Excellent
styling. The seats are firm, but I
think that this is due to the comfort
control package which massages your
back. Vey smooth and powerful.
