great entry level MB-- just dont get
into a hurry merging into traffic.

Also, be aware of the shrinking cabin
area. After some time, I am convinced
that something causes the vehicle to
slowly but surely decrease its interior
space, thus severely cramping all
occupants. Perhaps it is the "new"
wearing off.

And, if you're a large cup purchaser at
the convenience store-- get ready to
change your drinking habits, or wear
your beverage. Still no real cup

All in all, sophisticated and
comfortable, just don't plan on taking
the kids and spouse on a road trip in
this one-- opt for the larger E class!

Best Features

fuel economy, and the shining star on the hood. Great safety, quiet, and seats two comfortably with the seats in the rearmost positions.

Worst Features

MB has already axed this body and engine. New ones are hotter than ever. To bad for the Vault-like body style though, it always appealed to me.
