I agree with the writer in Atanta - that "kick" in low gear up the slightest of incline drives me crazy ! My other issues are the lack of side sunshades, the back seats not being heated, and not enough back-up cameras. It is a great car and I love the smooth ride and the interior and exterior styling. I compare heavily to the BMW 750IL that I drove 10 years prior. I also got used to free service - my 20K MB service was over $500.oo ! Ouch
I love this car and am very happy I bought it BUT I am concerned. 1 - The clutch pads may have a problem (transmission "kicks" in low gear up a hill) and 2 - the exhaust seems loud. I have less that 1,000 miles on the car so I'll take some responsibility for learning how to drive this car but I am concerned. This is the most comfortable car I have ever owned and I love the creature features. Coming from a Lexus history (I hate the LS 460 so I changed to MB), that is hard to admit. I heard a lot of people complain about MBrace but it has been working like a dream for me (email my car directions from Google maps is so cool!).
