ReviewLove drive and feel. Get 600 miles + per tank which really saves time at the pump (and cash). Car simply looks classy, even when dirty. Issues w/known quality problems with power window mechanism. Both rear windows became disconnected, the right side twice. Dealer says Mercedes knows, but they have not found fix. Car stalls when gas is pressed to far which is an issue for pulling into traffic. Fog lights have an inherent fault as does the A/C sensor on the outside. Bumber cover for winter heater plug and tow ring falls off and is expensive to replace. However, no other car beats its styling, so faults can be overlooked.
Best FeaturesRear seating is surprisingly comfortable for large adults w/plenty of leg room. Like the pop out cup holder. Deisel w/power is super.
Worst FeaturesWay too many quality problems. In addition to above, problems with seat controls and SRS are annoying. Took Dealer twice to get it right, but now the plastic cover between the seat & console keeps breaking (twice and is now rebroken). The dealer's techs perform like rookies, I leave w/problems.
