First Time Benz Owner

Hi all. Recently purchased a 2005 Japanese Import A200 Elegance. We are the second NZ owner, and its only done about 75000k. I have owned many many (way more than 30 cars since I was 14), but this is my first Auto, and my first Merc. My dad always wanted to own a Merc, but died before he could achieve this, so I figure this one is for him.

My next vehicle will just have to be a ML 320 or 350. We need a long distance traveller, but only have a Ford Mondeo for that purpose at the moment.

The A200 is used as our get-into-town motorway cruiser. We live in Upper Hutt, but work in Wellington. She cruises really well with 3 of us in it, and I really enjoy the handling and general "feel" of the little car. Looking forward to keeping it for many years.

Welcome to the forums! Must be a different feeling driving an automatic after years of driving a stick shift. It felt wierd for me to adjust to auto after years of driving a manaul transmission.
