Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
High purchase price but low depreciation after first 2 years. Not an investment - more an enthusiast's car.
Cheaper to service than BMW/Mercedes rivals, also much simpler for DIY servicing (if experienced).
On the road
Handling good, engine and gearbox good, but ride bad.
Good in general but poor at low rpm. Engine is smooth at high rpm.
Living with it
100% - up to 22,000 miles.
Can"t mistake it for anything else!
Surprisingly good over long distances, but back seats are cramped.
Security and Service
Poor preparation of car by dealer.
Problems and Ownership
Drinks approx. 300ml oil per 1,000 miles - not a "drive and forget" engine.
Door locks prone to jam - WD40 helps!
