I own this car, and in my opinion its absolutely fantastic. If you can afford the running costs (which are pretty high) then it shouldn't be a problem. It has never broken down, the quality is excellent, its got a gorgeous V6 and above all its a Mercedes. The customer satisfaction from the dealers is also very good... This car has a heart .... it makes you feel really happy... :) I love it!
THis is my third merc and my last. I loan this car to my daughter to travel to college and home late at night. The absurdly complicated "security" system put my daughter at risk when the key failed. I was told by an authorised dealer that the electonic key can "break" if it is knocked or even put in the same pocket as a mobile phone (magnetic field). At nearly £150 to replace and no manual alternative this is NOT a security system - it is a threat.
I have always liked big cars with big engines, and this Mercedes satifies all my needs.
Fantastic engine with outstanding overtaking skills. Road handling is very good, with excellent grip and control. A really delightful drive with no major flaws.
