- Excellent handling, appearance and style is superb!
- Front air dam is too low. Easily scraped on curbs when parking, especially by valets.
Car is an excellent vehicle overall, but I've had the front air dam painted three times due to scraping on curbs while parking, usually a problem with valets. Paint not only scraps, but chips too due to the rather flimsy plastic that makes up the dam.
Transmission is real clunky, especially when going up hills. Not a deal breaker - more of a disappointment for a car this price range. MB needs to address this in future models.
Navigation system/clock/radio is rather confusing to operate. Some of the controls are buttons on the steering wheel, some controls are on the navigation unit itself. Changing the time alone confused the dealership personel. Took me a hour or so to figure it out when I got home.
Other than these issues, the car has been a dream. Great styling, engine performs well, real head turner. Just don't let anyone look under the front end to see your scraped up air dam (it WILL be scaped up, believe me!).
