I have owned my wagon for exactly 13 months. I bought it with 104,000 miles, and I have put over 50,000 miles in that time. Most reliable car that I've ever had. Changed the oil every 7,000 mi (synthetic). Changed the brake pads once (routine maintenance). No expenditures at all. Still looks new. Will eventually put money into it and restore it completely (perhaps in a couple of years or so). Never want to get rid of it. Will be my son's first car. Just Love it !!!!
I have owned this car since 2000 and I am very happy with the experience. I purchased it as a two year old lease return. I have garaged it since purchase and maintained it annually. I also have it detailed after each winter inside and out. Feeding the leather annually has kept the leather supple and like new. I live in a non-snow/road salt area so there's no rust. At 16 years old the car still looks new. That said my only gripe is with the transmission and rear window regulators. I've had the transmission replaced once, after owning the car ten years, with an updated version and the rear window regulators replaced three times. The rear regulators are poorly designed in my opinion. I've gotten very good wear, and non of the dust problems, with ceramic brake pads. And have only replaced the rotors once. Prior to the switch I was taking the car in for brakes almost on an annual basis. The engine is bullet proof in my opinion and at 136,000 miles it still feels peppy and strong. Using Mobil-1 synthetic motor oil it's entire life has protected the engine and kept it running very smooth and quiet. I feel very safe in this car. The body feels like a tank. Overall I will buy this model again if I find that Daimler has kept up the quality control on this model.
Absolutely love this care. It's quick, great fuel mileage and fun to drive.
*Note Canadian location (Zip codes will not stick on RepairPal for Canadian users). Purchased 2nd hand in 2002 from know owner with 80K. Good engine, replaced balljoints, struts, 2 tie rods, 2 brake jobs, 4 window lifts, blower motor, blower regulator and housing, 15 headlamp bulbs, 2 drive belts, 1 door hinge. FM radio does not work below 12 Celcius, Major rust problem on entire car, shock mount just broke off the mount assembly rendering it a financial write off. Car is rarely winter driven - located in non salt winter region. Profoundly dissapointed considering the car has been very well maintained and driven with care.
