Summary:

Never again

Faults:

Rear window heater (defogger) blew after third usage, key shell broke after 1 1/2 year (70.000 km).

Contacted MB, their response and the way they handle complaints is just like talking to the wall - they don't even read the complaint.

Some bugs of audio system software (remembers RDS data of previous station on same frequency - poor refresh)

General Comments:

The dealer service is excellent!

Car is extremely comfortable and safety is unbeatable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Can't believe you say never again just because your key fob broke and the demist broke, these cars are lovely.

I bought a new 2004 Mercedes E270, my Spanish number plate is 2814CSD. I have many electrical problems. It is the worst car I've ever had.
