It's kind of a couch on wheels
Just some small problems I could solve with a screwdriver. e.g. the back lights didn't work properly.
Once I've had a strange noise that just disappeared a few days later. It came from the belt in front of the engine, so I didn't care much about it.
The car isn't very strong. Just around 75PS out of 2.0l diesel. That could be better, but when you're not in a hurry, it is enough. I went 170 km/h, specified value for maximum speed is 160.
It's very economic, when I go 120 on the highway, I need less than 6l on 100km.
And this car is incredibly comfortable. The seats are great, even after 17 years, the handling is smooth, but nevertheless feels safe.
Just a 5th gear would be nice, so I could go faster without wasting fuel.
After all, I think my next car will be a Mercedes again, I hope the newer models also feel that good and comfortable and smooth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
