I bought it on October 1. Its been perfect. Got a great deal and was very pleased with the dealership. The car could have been detailed and cleaned inside better as all used cars should be when buying from a dealership direct. But other than that it was a great purchase.

Very Well Made Compact Car! — I like that it has tons of room! I don't like that seats are not same, I.e., power, leather. Only driver side is! Kinda weird but I guess the driver should be the most comfortable, eh? This car has help up remarkably well over the years. I bought it used (had 1 prior owner) and have not regretted this purchase.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: My commute is often by freeway, over 40 miles and with tons of traffic. When Im in my tank, it's my Private Idaho.

Cons: I don't have any -

It's Alright — high cost in fuel, so cheep to insure, drives like dream. can be slid round any corner, performes better than any hot hatch, the trim on the elegance is second to none, for a lrge car it can be raced.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: quality

Cons: got  footbrake not handbrake.

Mercedes Benz C 200 1997 — This car is one of a compact type of Mercedes Benz. Although smaller than E Class type it still a luxury Mercedes Benz. It has 2000CC 4 cylinder engine which I think is less powerful for its moderate heavy body. This car is very fun to drive, the size is compact, and of course high gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small, easy to drive, high gas mileage, still luxury body and suspension.

Cons: Small power of the engine.

Overall — Build Quality is some of the best that I have ever seen. Car now has 300k without ANY major repairs only maintainance. Drives like it is brand new. Accelleration is very good for a big 4cyl, cost of ownership is actually very low and. Its a very relaxing car to drive. I think if I were to throw the Kompressor kit on it I would get into a little more trouble with it hahaha.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best Reliability Available

Cons: needs more power

Just Fing Drive It — You don't realise how good those germans are at putting together a decent car until you have spent some quality time behid the wheel of a Merc... at 12 years old it should rattle and squeak but it's still tight as a drum !!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

Aside From The Body Roll And Being Automatic... Its A Decent Car. — Throttle lag sucks but can be fixed with a powerchip... I6 @ 190hp seems a little underpowered for any car, but the car feels like it pulls throughout the powerband... Had to replace engine wiring harness after about 60k miles. FILLSPACE.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The Car Feels Solid

Cons: Maintenance Costs...
