Well, my first road trip in the 300SD went well. I now know for sure that this is an amazing vehicle. The 5 1/2 hour drive to Lexington, KY was a breeze. I drove there Friday and came home Saturday. I liked it so much I drove down again Monday and came home last night! I had to go back down for oral boards for the police dept. I didn't mind though because it really was a great ride. Not a single problem. My girlfriend went with me the second time and I think she likes the car a little more now. Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know how it went. I am looking forward to doing it again. We will probably drive back down May 1st.
