Be careful buying one of these, I did, full history, 6 months out of warranty, 71000 miles and an auto gearbox problem that caused it to jerk violently forward or backwards when starting from cold. No problem said my Merc agent (Carlisle) Mercedes know about this problem, happened before, but will not help out even as a goodwill gesture (March 2007). Auto box cooling system in radiator has failed causing water to enter gearbox New rad, torque convertor and g/box needed (app £6000-00)
My car was reg.MF53FEV don't buy it! I traded it in instead, lost a fortune.
Buy a Mondeo instead.
