8yrs of driving blissful
Added: 21st of January 2014
I bought this car in 2005 just as the model first appeared. The first time I saw the shape I was sure it would be the most expensive Merc available, it was like an E class price wise. Ordered new and collected from the factory and drove home. The car was superb, it still is, no major faults or issues, and it still turns heads. Good fuel economy with long runs 46mpg and round town 30mpg. It does go through tyres every 10-12k which is a lot. Mostly due to torque to rear wheels. Drives like a petrol car, this was my first diesel and apart from early start, it was better. Getting in and out of the rear is more difficult due to the slope shape, but once in lots of room. Boot is good too. Would recommend to anyone, changing for a Merc E cabriolet this time, mid life crisis!
