I'm new here. My name is Al and I am in NYC. I currently don't own a MB, but I am considering the purchase of one. I am hoping the members here can help me decide if I should buy and what to look out for when I go shopping.
I currently own a 2007 Acura MDX. One of the main reasons we got the car was because it could seat 7. We don't often carry 7, about 4 times a year. Functionally the car works fine. But I don't like that the car is so tall and heavy. I want to replace it with something lower and lighter. What I really want is a larger station wagon. I did some shopping around and I found that station wagons are pretty much gone. I looked at the Volvo, but they screwed it up. They made it taller, heavier and got rid of the third row. I was also not impressed with the say it drove. The only vehicle left is the MB E class wagon.
I've looked at the E class and it looks like just what I need. While doing some research I saw that MB made a E63 wagon and that peaked my interest. I find power to be an important safety feature in a car. I'm can't afford a new one, so I wanted to know if the E63 wagons were reliable and what expect if I do get one.
