Summary:

Excellent car

Faults:

Nothing, except some "clicking" sound coming from back seat. Will ask dealer to fix it during the regular maintenance check.

General Comments:

All my previous cars were petrol, so I was a little bit afraid that diesel will be slow and noisy. This car is extremely quiet and has better acceleration than my previously owned Opel Omega V6 2.5L. Average fuel consumption is 8,6 liters per 100km, and I drive only within the city, with it's traffic jams.

Car is very comfortable, it's Avantgarde version equipped with everything needed to make driving a car a real joy. Seats are comfortable, my first car of more than 10 I owned, where I can drive for hours, and get out of the car without any back pain, as it was with my cars before. Factory sound system has very good sound, and quite good performance - if you are not a hi-Tech sound maniac it will be more than enough.

So far, looks like this is true, that MB made a lot of work with improving their cars quality - nothing went wrong with this car. It gives everything you can expect from this class MB - excellent value for money, and comfortable and quiet ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
