We bought our 2000 Mercedes in 2006 because we got it for only $14,000, but this thing is horrible in reliability. The catalytic conveters went, and we could not drive it for three months. Also the car is very expensive to maintain, $80 for oil change, $600 brake changes, $30-$60 for gas. The car is a nice drive, and the interior has a nav whitch is an asset. It also has a third row seat whitch is useful. I would not recommend this car if you don't have a lot of money, but if you do, good luck.
Nav is nice. The 3.2 V6 engine is very peppy. The leather is comfortable. The Bose sound system is nice
Build quality and reliability need to be greatly improved. Drink holders are in a bad place.
