The interior is superb, roomy, and comfortable. Except for a driveline noise that seems to be appearing, the interior is quiet and the ride is smooth. You can tell that the engine is a little small for this 5000lb beast, but the 7-speed makes do with what it's got to make it manageable. Fuel mileage is around 17.5 city and 22 highway. Not bad for a 7 passenger vehicle! The maintenance cost is high, so beware. An oil change (just oil, nothing else!) is $280. You can do the maintenance yourself, but I am expecting a challenge from MB on lease turn in time.
Roomy, quiet, and smooth. Great interior quality and fit and finish. Good mpg for its size and intention. Good stereo.
Why does a $50+k car need an additional item to make the bluetooth work? See other people's comments on that one! Can be expensive to maintain, but that's to be expected. I have had a couple of minor quality issues with the driveline (sensors, noise). No navigation and/or touch screen for $50k?
