Review

After waiting over twenty years to buy
my first Benz - finally getting one
was an underwhelming exercise in
futility. This is a TERRIBLE car,
built like any other Pinto, Gremlin or
Vega - HONESTLY. Bad build quality,
rattles, squeaks, LOUD when driving
it, alignment that can't be fixed, a
transmission that can't be diagnosed,
and a Corporate Office that refuses to
deal with customers on ANY level
whatsoever. I was told their Director
of Customer Assistance does NOT read,
or answer his mail, nor will he
contact any customers. THIS is
Mercedes Benz? THINK TWICE IF YOU ARE
IN THE MARKET FOR A BENZ.....

Best Features

Supercharged Engine, that displays its prowess when IT wants to, not when you want it to. Sometimes a sugar rush of power - other times, nothing...

Worst Features

Corporate Customer Assistance Department should ACTUALLY ASSIST THEIR CUSTOMERS. The transmission on this car is garbage. Bad build quality - should not have RATTLES AND SQUEAKS at 2500 - 3000 miles. I've bought and owned 13 cars over 28 years - THIS is the worst.
