New to Mercedes Family

I have driven only American cars since 2006, they normally come with lots of bells and whistles, so it was funny to see an ash tray and CD player in the vehicle. I like the way the car handles. It is smooth to drive and comfortable. Not too big and not too small.

lemon-salesman said you wil research 1st next time

...repeatedly took to dealership for problems only to be told that was normal for that car, after all it was made by Nissan and "you will do your research next time" No repair or fix was offered after being taken for way too much for this car. I was a Mercedes only person till now.
