Review
I'd have to say that overall I am not that happy with this MB product. It is my first and probably last. The cost cutting features become obvious after the cache of driving a Mercedes wears off. Too many typical MB luxury features were cut out of the "special edition" which would have been more aptly named the "lower class" edition. More enjoyable to own and drive that the comparable ford explorer, but I have also experienced the quick wear of dunlop oem tires and the 25k mile brake job. Should not have to replace ball joint and drive train bearings/valve in under 50k miles. Reliability very disappointing for a $40K plus vehicle. Handling better than expected for a virtual road tank!
Favorite Features
Overall package, exterior aesthetics, handling and ride comfort
Suggested Improvements
Driver's seat lacks lumbar support leading to driver fatigue and back pain after about an hour in the drivers seat, so more supportive and comfortable seats. Reliability, reliability, reliability. It doesn't much matter if covered under warranty, still inconvenient and warranties expire eventually!
