"Well built car with amazing comfort. I love driving this car but it is expensive to service. Brakes and tires, -kaa'ching. As with all Mercs, use only super unleaded fuel. Nearly 500 HP is intoxicating, did I mention the brakes and tires. This car is an engineering marvel."
"I'm fortunate enough to be able to buy a newer (2011) model for my wife who needs a back up camera and the additional safety items such as collision avoidance systems etc. that are not on her current car. I always buy MB 3-4 yrs. old, AMG. The performance is fantastic and the handling, comfort, reliability top notch. I purchase with MB warranty followed with aftermarket warranty. Parts and MX are as you would expect - expensive - but worth it."
