Not All That and a Bag of Chips

1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Sedan
I've had this vehicle since April, 2006. The radio light went out and the seat memory and motors malfunctioned. I had the extended warranty but the dealer still charged me to fix the seat memory module. Dealer stated that the module did not need replacement and therefore was not covered. Irritating. The transmission is strange. Often times, in low gear, the transmission shifts abruptly as if the car was rear ended or bucks like a bronco. Also, the speed sensing radio is not at all accurate. On the positive side, the car is solid and vault-like. I feel safe in this car even though it is not as agile as my BMW. Torque is plentiful and gas mileage is admirable for a luxury car.
Vault-like solidity, good gas mileage, good engine performance.
Fix the transmission! Correct the speed sensing radio so the volume increases when car is accelerating and decreases upon deceleration.
