I have had my Mercedes-Benz for around 2 years now and I must admit I love it. The acceleration is quite good once the engine has warmed up sufficiently but it can be a little sluggish for the first couple of miles.
One downside I found out recently was that it has poor performance when trying to get going in the snow. With it being an automatic car and rear wheel drive, there is no real traction for getting moving up a hill.
Economically, I find it quite good and usually get in the region of 500 miles out of a full tank.
As with many badged cars though, repairs are not overly cheap with tyres costing around £100 each and the services are not overly cheap either.
One point I would make though is the car has never let me down and starts first time every time. Overall, I would recommend this car to friends and family and might even replace my current model with a newer version in the future
