This is my 5th MB and it has been a pleasant surprise. It is a superbly designed, extremely safe, highly functional multi-purpose vehicle. At 28 - 30 mpg on the freeways at 70+ mph, who could complain. Any comparison with the Pacifica is dillusional at best. Recommendation to mfr: make memory seating standard, especially at this price!
Air suspension ride and superb sound proofing coupled with an awesome stereo sound system. Remarkable mileage on highways.
At this price, memory seats should be standard as well as navigation system.
