I bought this wagon for the room and MB
solid reputation. My husband (2001
Audi driver) is amazed at how well
my wagon handles. The engine is smooth
and it drives like a new car. Leather
seats, carpet and paint job look like
new (and I have children who eat in the
car). While I have had some annoying
repairs (A/C evaporator, engine wiring
harness) it still amazes me that
the "gadgets" still work (auto seats,
windows, locks, lights) after 9 years
on the road. Plus, no squeaks or
rattles. Find an MB 'enthusiast'
mechanic-often know more and are less
expensive than a dealer. Would keep it
over a new MB-and will pass down when
my son turns 16.
Great visibility, handling, built like
a tank, lots of room, holds up to wear
and tear. Love the (easy) fold down
seats for cargo and third seat when
MB needs to go back to making this
quality-Reminds me of my mother's old
300 TD-ran forever. Could use better
distribution of A/C, needs cupholders.
Window controls in middle-
counterintuitive. Passenger glovebox.
