I love this car
The car is still beautiful, my friends would have thought it was brand new if Mercedes hadn't done a redesign.
This was my first car, and like my parents I was pretty excited to be a Mercedes owner. I do realize the badge is a huge selling factor of the car.
But, the styling looks really nice for an old generation, and it looks just as sporty and modern if not more so than my friend's new cars.
The performance is solid, a 2.5L V6 isn't a speed demon, but the car won't "drag" along.
That being said, the mileage is ridiculously poor, I get around 19-21mpg.
Inside, the seats are very comfortable, I got a car with genuine leather seats, not MB-TEX.
The interior does feel a bit dated, as this model doesn't have an LCD screen like newer cars, but it looks nice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
