What can I say that has not already been said.
Very noisy dashboard,
pathetic acceleration.. Air conditioner decides to stop working after its been working fine all day,
power door locks not working, and the locks in the back are at the rear of the door, very tough to reach...
The need to always have the code reader in the car, just in case!!!
Very poorly design throttle-body.. gets dirty really easy causing most drive-ability problems..
MPG not good for a small 5 cylinder with 5 speed manual low-mid 20's..
my 99 e320 with a v6 and auto 27+ mpg...
On the plus sides.. The car is sized right,
It has pretty good handling.
the seats are ok with some adjustments.
back seats fold down..
there is room under the hood for most repairs..
maybe hire a japanese or korean company to design and build your computer, wiring, sensors..
and anything else made by Bosch...
