Consumer Rating

My model has destronix and parktronics
only owned it for 1 week, love my car, plan to keep it for many years, got extended warranty and pre paid maintenance
Love Thy Toy
Comfort, Reliability & Prestige of owning a MB
Handles better than our 2008 E550
Expensive, but superior ride, handling, quiet, and very responsive, faster and better MPG than our 08 E550! Many features, finding out more as we drive the car. We were blown away with the self setting clock, the previous Mercedes clocks, tedious when changing time. A truly superior automobile, although I do miss the bullet proof paint of old, the new paint being water based is not as durable.
