What does this car say about you?
Practical, perhaps a little too flashy.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They don't like the rust either.

Would you buy this car again and why?
NOPE...Mercedes sadly seem to have moved a long way from quality that their reputation was built on. The ads should say ''I am Merecedes...pity me ..I am rusting away!".

What are you likely to buy next?
A Ford, SKoda, Kia. BMW, Volve..something that is going to last a long time.

Good internal space for compact vehicle.
