Best Mercedes ever built
Engine requires 5 seconds to start. Problem not fixed.
Broken sunroof rails at 125K, easy to fix, but hard to find used parts and very expensive at the dealer.
Over voltage protection relay changed recently, $US40.
New radiator changed recently, $100.
I bought this car when gas prices start to rise two years ago.
The car seemed well maintained; interior was almost flawless and engine running smooth. Despite the low gas mileage, this is a fantastic car from any angle: beautiful timeless design, built like a tank, very easy to work on for a do-it-yourself-er, reliable, and parts, no matter how small or insignificant, are available through the dealer, usually at affordable prices.
The car came with almost all comfort and security items available (ABS, airbag, sunroof, leather seats, electric seats with memory, A/C, etc.,), and is a wonderful day to day driving car, even for today standards.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
