This is a high quality automobile. It is a rocket of a sedan and a lot of fun to drive. It runs dead silent and so smooth and quiet I am constantly checking the tach at stoplights, to see if engine is running.
Very comfortable and driver friendly for long trips or dailey driver.
The car has issues with the ABS suspension and I am of the opinion the Factory should volunteer a complete recall with R&R on these cars. Manfacturer design id FLAWED. It works, but is overly fragile. HOWEVER, it is worth overlooking for the rest of this cars positive features.
If you want to $urvive this car financially, stay AWAY from the dealers. Most all of the issues have become known, and "remanufacturers" have stepped in with quality rebuilds and 30% - 50% of list. Used parts are OK in my book as well, if they are pre-tested. USE ONLY TOP PREMIUM FUEL and ALL SYNTHETIC OILS and FLUIDS. Change all often. DO NOT "horse" the transmission or rearend with burnouts. The car WILL self destruct in minutes... do not buy a used one from a "younger person" for this reason... If it doesn't have factory wheel on it... PASS.
its a piece of junk
MB should be ashame or robbing people without a gun, this car has been the worse of the worse, two coil packs, and then a engine, and then alternator, and the abc system is down know which was recall i do not have any more money to put in this lemon i am retired i have to live also all new plugs and new computer and new starter, fuel pump i could go on and on this is the worse benz i ever own i hhave a 1983 500 sel not a problem at all what the hect is wrong with these i wish i had never bought this cancer i will start a campaign to discredit allthese cars not quality made as the older ones i will see if i can get some help on this abc system and wii get rid of it wright away, and just drive my 1983. it is so sad they rob you when you buy and the dealers continue to blood suck you as long as you let them, i would love to tell the world about this car only buy to burn or you will be broke if you are rich, burn the car and keep your cash i paid for my lesson and you can not get any help at all from the car maker its a damn shame blood suckers i am very disapointed whith this car like the whole economy do not buy this junk they are putting out i will buy american, not a benz thanks for letting me tell you like it is
This car was great until the warranty ran out! We only have 51k on our 02, and it has cost me 10k in the past few months. For the money we spent on this car we are disgusted with the repair cost. The dome light is $1,100, the coil packs, and module just cost $5,200!!!

I think Mercedes should give us a SERIOUS credit for trade in on a Benz that isn't a complete JOKE!! They built a car with their brand name that is a failure. If it didn't say Benz none of us suckers would have spent well over $100k. They really need to do something for the original purchasers.
Absolutely stunning vehicle! I do have empathy for those who abuse or fail to properly maintain such an amazing vehicle but the only problem i've ever had with her is the Wiring Harnesses. All of which have been replaced recently at an expense of almost 10k. Once they work out that problem the car will be absolutely amazing!
This car has a serious problem with their electronic systems. I am having a continuous problems with sensors. Serious problem with cars suspension and automatic balance system. I spent close to $30,000 for the repair cost and still have the problems.
