I first saw this car in the movie
jurassic park and said to myself: I
must have one. I finally got one a few
months back and today, I traded it in
for a jaguar because I am concerned
about the future reliability of the
car. the passenger driver door lock
needs replacement and I hear some
funny noises coming from the steering
mechanism. a plastic part in the back
just cracked for no reason and even
with the extended warranty I just
don't want the hassle. my business
parner has a 320 sedan and he is eager
to dump it because mercedes benz got
lost somewhere and their newer cars
are just overpriced not the legends of
peppy, nice handling and control.
roomy and comfortable. car-like riding.
cd changer in the front please! the
back sounds like cheap can when
closes. a bigger gas tank would be
nice because it is a pain to fill-up
twice a week!!
this is my first mercedes experience.
in the past 12 months i've had to
spend over $3500 replacing various
parts including fuel pump, steering
mechanism, and the battery. i've had
my vehicle stuck in my garage because
it wouldn't start on 3 occassions and
stuck 1,000 miles from home after my
fuel pump went bad with no warning.
perhaps i have/had high expectations
but i didn't and do not expect such
problems with a mercedes benz product
the exterior style and interior
comfort. driving performance and
handling are great when there are no
We bought this used with just 6,000
miles on it and a Starmark warranty
after owning two new Pathfinders. What
a difference. This is a great SUV.
Comfortable, fast and, I have to risk
saying reliable. We haven't been let
down once in 65,000 miles. I marked it
down a little on build quality because
we have had a couple of stupid switch
type problems but that's it. Our
average gas consumption of 18 is pretty
darn good for a V8 of this weight. We
just had the brakes replaced for the
first time and are on our first set of
replacement tires. Not bad for a
vehicle now at 71,000.
Comfort and performance are great. On
our 400 mile trek to skiing, we get
there fresh compared with when we drove
the Pathfinders. What a difference, we
never knew what what were missing.
Imporve, as I believe they have, the
stupid little switch issues.
