Another niggle was the reliability of the engine.....I know a Merc indy and he has seen some horror stories regarding the V6 diesel.
Got a C Class 350 CDI Sport Saloon. Yes, great engine, but it rattles like hell on acceleration from rest. Wake the dead. The gearbox had an update to reduce its hesitation and was much improved. Still, not as good as a 330d IMO.
Build of the c class seem way below that of the e?!
