"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."
"Its surprisingly fast for such a heavy vehicle and the exhaust note is awesome, drivetrain qaulity is excellent, interior quality is lacking though, some cheap plastic here and there and there are a few rattles, the ride is rather rough for a benz due to the performance handling from AMG, but it does handle well for a car this size. For the money I paid for it I think its not a bad deal but if I had paid it's original price when it was new I would be disapointed with the quality for that much money. The styling of the car isn't really my taste, the exterior is OK but the intereior is not what I like at all, its to curvey, I prefer straight lines."
