58-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

An excellent car with outstanding interior space, the heating is superb, on a cold morning the heater warms up almost instantly which is very unusual for a diesel engine. Performance is more than adequate and fuel economy is good. Build quality is the B class's forte, it's as well built as any car I have ever owned (and that's a lot), boot space is excellent along with rear leg room which would match a much bigger car, all in all an excellent mini MPV with many admirable qualities. My only gripe is the brakes which are spongy, Mercedes have replaced the brake fluid and bled the system but to no avail.
