Low Quality Car
Got the Car in October of 2001
-Had to replace brake pads in Jan 2003 and again in Jan 2004.
-Power steering blew and left us stranded a few miles away from LAX airport.
-Trip computer keeps resetting to GER or ENG instead of USA and resetting the date (took to dealer and they said it was fixed) but it keeps happening.
-Rear windows got stuck in down position and had to be fixed TWICE before the entire power window board was replaced.
-Front head lamp went out and had to be replaced.
-Rear Light went out and had to be replaced.
-Rear inside lamp case fell out completely and had to be replaced.
-Rear head rest got stuck and needed to be fixed by dealer.
-Front glove compartment door came loose and required repairs.
-"Visit TeleAid Workshop" error message caused four visits to dealer before it was finally fixed.
-Fluttering noise from driver side of the engine was cause for another trip to dealer.
-Interior is made of cheap materials and is not durable.
This car is the worst thing that MB USA has made. My family has driven other MB models and have NEVER had this many problems. I'm sooo glad I leased this car because after my lease is up, I'm washing my hands of this nightmare. I have a 12 year old Lexus that gives me less problems than this "luxury" SUV.
The turning radius is good and I like the color of the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
