A great car, perfect in every detail


The 4Matic (4-wheel-drive) is beginning to cause some troubles (leaking).

General Comments:

By far the best and most reliable car I have ever owned. Even smoother and more comfortable than my former Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Series III. Looks almost new after 270'000 km.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
