Although we bought this car used, it has only been fun to drive for the first 4000 miles, then major things started breaking down in this car. Computer Module at 90k, $1000 repair. Then, cracked radiator at 92k, $900 repair. Then, 110k, tension belt and pulley blow out, $550 repair. Also, these repair are being done by mechanic, which is way less than what the dealer would charge. Normal wear and tear items like tires, brakes,
and oil changes are very costly. It's a nice car, but it is becoming really difficult maintaining this vehicle. Also, the interior trim was made with cheap plastic, and is breaking. We expected better from a Mercedes-Benz product, and will not buy another.
The strong engine pickup and performance. Great acceleration, leather seats, seat warmers, and navigation system.
Improve the overall reliabilty and build quality of the car. For such an expensive car, use parts that dont break early. Mercedes-Benz is cutting corners with cheap part and materials, but still charging the customer the same price. car, parts should last longer.
