I must say this is the best car I have ever owned. These are the word from a customer that give the review for the MB4Y blog.
This car is undoubtedly expensive against its competitors. Particularly when highly specified, but each of us will make our own value judgement. In our case we place high value on comfort and refinement and, increasingly, on the available safety features. So from this viewpoint we think it is well worth the investment.
We are less concerned with outright performance or handling. The fact that these and other elements of driver engagement are often perceived as less dynamic than with BMW or Jaguar is not an issue – we are finding that the air suspension works well and the car feels stable and predictable under typical road conditions. Much has been reported concerning technology such as MercedesMe, which looks like being very useful, and the autonomous driving features. Some of these features work better than others. Some are more practical than others, but they do at least demonstrate a real commitment to improving safety.
How reliable do you find the car?
This a complex vehicle with the Premium Plus package and a number a additional options. From past experience over 40 years of motoring there is often a trade-off between the level of specification and reliability achieved. Over the first 1.178 miles there have been no issues and performance has been faultless.
Does the car do everything you expected it to do?
After extensive research on this car and a broad range of alternatives prior to the purchasing decision we had a clear expectation of the driver and passenger experience. The car has delivered against this very successfully and still feels exciting to get into every time we set off.
