Great design, but poorly assembled / executed
Nothing too major, just numerous trivial things which have necessitated a visit to the dealer - and I'm not that fussy about squeaks and rattles, which is just as well... It's just that I expect the remote entry keys to work - I don't like having to open the doors manually and set off the alarm. Likewise I like to be able to put the drivers window up once I've sent it down. I'd like the fuel gauge to be more accurate, but the thing which really got me was the battery failing without warning which left me stranded. There were a couple of other things like trim pieces falling off and an O2 sensor which needed replacing. All in all not too good for a new low mileage 'quality' SUV.
I'd hoped that by now MB would have gotten the bugs out of what otherwise would be a great SUV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
