I'm the type of person who gets bored with cars easily. This is the first car that I still want to hang on to. It's fun to drive. This might sound like a cliche, but it feels like I don't sit in it, I wear it. Absolute confidence in handling. No, it's not very fast although in city driving it is more than sufficient. Taking off from a dead stop is great. Highway acceleration is just OK. Pretty good gas milage, overall city and highway is around 22-23 MPG. Reliabilty is very good, I've had nothing more than the heated seats go bad. This car makes me feel safe. A tree fell on it and the cabin top was still intact. Rear ended at 30+ MPH, 9k damage but cabin (and driver) completely fine. I wash this car frequently and carefully. At over 50k miles there are no swirls or defects to the paint. Still looks better than many new cars.
Very little on the downside. Poor visibility in the rear, need to be very careful in parking lots. People over 6' or very big might find it too tight. Also need to be careful with tires if your going to drive it on ice or snow. I bought what should have been excellent all season tires (Yokohama) but still handles poorly in winter. Might be the tires fault, because all of a sudden they went from having great reviews to poor reviews (for ice and snow). Being a Mercedes expect to pay alot for repairs, but I havent had any yet, Just expensive oil changes and brakes (although I got over 40k on the front and still have the original rear brakes). This car's resale value has dropped like a rock, but I think there is a good chance that it will become if not a true classic, at least a car much desired by some.
