Mercedes S320 CDI - 2004
Added: 20th of July 2014
I purchased this vehicle from a dealer over the telephone and without seeing it before the day of purchase. I was lucky to choose a dealer who was honest about all aspects of the car and who carried out all those actions necessary to ensure that when I collected it everything was as it should be including new MOT and a 6 month warranty which helps to put one's mind at rest. The car was perfect in almost every way reasonably possible with - so far at least - only a couple of minor niggles to be aggravated about. A beautiful motor car that is quiet, smooth and very comfortable. It returns in excess of 45mpg on longer journeys and averages 39mpg overall since purchase. There is abundant room for all passengers and the boot seems cavernous. I have yet to fully master the vast options available via the convenience section of the enormous handbook that comes with the car, but it is good fun trying! It is only fair to say that I have not had the car very long to date and cannot comment on the reliability issue but hope it is as good as my last mercedes (C250) which gave virtually no proplem at all other than a new set of tyres.
