There are some things about this car that are exceptional. Engine, drive train, performance, handling and styling are all terrific. MB has also done a really nice job with the electronics. I could figure out how to use all of the controls without the manual. The less good news. Stereo sound should be better. XM radio doesn't work well if you have many trees in your area. Dashboard dials look worse than my old E class. Materials on interior aren't noticably better than on my old E class. The biggest beef I have with the car is that it has some squeaks and rattles in the dash and doors. This is unaccepatble in a car of this price/class.
Performance, styling, operation of electronics.
Front seats could be more comfortable. Stereo, dashboard, build quality all need attention.
