Mike's Mercedes Page

I have to eat crow a little bit here, as I was bragging about my new Jag quite a bit before I took my new job. Well, I didn't get a new Jag. I could have, but 1) It wasn't really practical for us having dogs and 2) after driving one, I just didn't like it compared to the other cars I could choose from. I drove every new station wagon "estate" type car from Audi, Volvo, Saab, BMW, etc. and decided the Mercedes had the best characteristics overall for the money allocated by Electrolux. I ended up with a Mercedes C220 diesel wagon. The car is automatic, has leather seats and a navigation system. It is absolutely perfect for us driving on the wrong side of the road and not knowing where we are going most of the time! The turbo diesel engine is awesome. It has great power and gets an average of 40 miles per gallon. I can get 50 mpg on the highway! I really don't know why these new common rail turbo diesels are not more available in the states.
