1st Mercedes owned
Added: 26th of March 2016
I have now had to his car for 6 months, I selected the car for the badge initially as I have always wanted to own a Merc and so far I have been very pleased with my purchase, I owned. Saab 93 previously which I loved, but this time I needed a more practical car boot wise and also a car that was a little more family friendly for me two boys who are 13 and 11 to see out of. the space and visibility in the cabin is excellent there is plenty of room for a family of 4 and door space if you need to catty an extra person on the back. The quality of the materials is very good, not as good as a new c class but posh enough to feel you own something special that is also going to last, the Merc fake leather is also very good you wouldn't know it was man made and it's very easy to clean again great for the kids. Performance wise the car is fast enough and economical but a little bit sluggish in second gear at low revs, so you have to drop down into 1st gear and get the revs to get it moving but that is only my real gripe, the car is practical and also looks quite sporty for a mini mph and don't be put off by the sports model which I have as the alloys looks loads better it rides 15mm lower to the ground and therefore looks and handles very well as long as you don't mind a slightly harder ride on country lanes, so you can at least pretend you are in a much more sporty car than what it actually is, so in conclusion the car fits all the family needs, my wife likes it because she can get a loftly driving position and I can put the seat right down and feel like a racing driver!
