    Beautiful — Great car, lots of pros with little cons, fun to drive and great on gas mileage. Easy to handle and quick to accelerate. I love how it fits into any car stall anywhere. The 2003 model was ahead of it's time with lots of modern features that are just now being offered in newer model cars.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast and comfortable, easy to maneuver, low maintenance, great gas mileage

    Cons: Can get expensive if something breaks......very rare

    Classic/cool — I dont really like the small engine and its no good for winter snow in chicago. Its great in the summer and on gas. Easy to work on since its a I4 engine so everything is at your reach of hand.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas Saver

    Cons: Not Enough Power

    Entry Level Mb Wagon — Fit and finish of this car is remarkable, very well done. Driveline is capable and smooth. Not a lot of "extras" here, just a solid family commuter. Trouble free and reliable. Decent 24 MPG average from premium gas. Great value.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Car handles and drives fantastic. Remarkably low maintenance costs (coming from an Infiniti). Not a luxury or sports car but very predictable and reliable.

    Cons: More utilitarian than expected, backseat sucks for long trips (sorry kids!).

    Love This Car! — I have owned the car for a few years and overall, I would say it was a great relationship. The car is fun and looks great. The down side is I am unable to tow a boat because trailer hitches are expensive for this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A fun car to drive!  This is a great combination of high performance and fuel savings combined in one car.   

    Cons: There is not much room in the back seat and the cost of the car repairs can be expensive.

    Great Car — The Mercedes is hard to find a substitute for...Just a very reliable vehicle you would absolutely love. The maintenance can be high, but, you don't have to take it as regularly as you would a less expensive vehicle. You can keep them forever!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I absolutely loved this car!  It handles well on the road and get good miles to the gallon.

    Cons: The maintenance can be high if you're not used to it, but, if regularly maintained they will last forever!

    Get It, It's Worth It If You Get A Good Deal On It. — Great car, I miss it so much now. Then again, who didn't miss their first car? Would recommend to many people! A good Mercedes for a not so big price. Should be able to fit almost any budget looking for a nice car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Classy

    Cons: Something would go wrong every once in a while.

    If You Buy Make Sure You Become A Member Of A Forum Or You Will Spend Way Too Much Money — performanc is great for a 4 door sedan i love the car there is allot of tuning option i wanted a a nice quick car 800 dollars get you in the 400+ bhp without affecting comfort. I personaly have take this car to 177mph with no problem there are a few things that like that went out like the intercooler pump at 100k miles and the intercooler itself. those were pricy but beside that i love tihis car i have the rear folding seat and it helps allot when i have to pick up some things from home depot for the house i considered bying a trunck to haul litle stuff around but the i think about it i can do pretty much anything with my C32 amg 145000 miltes driven on this car and counting.

    Pros: best car for the money  All I have to say is  AMG

    Cons: nothing
