Very questionable engine build quality.

Single chain driving cam and crankshaft which are prone to stretching, camshaft sprocket are prone to stripping their teeth, cam lobes are known to fail, supercharger are known to give up, oil leaks. Once the chain snaps, its a good bye kiss to that engine.

Hello people,

Please why is 4matic usually discouraged?

Also, what nice suv can a 4/5m budget procure? Could be a clean registered one.

Thanks all.

The moment you call ndubisi benz spare parts seller..

Oga.... Hello ndubisi..

Ndubisi... Hello oga ,I am fine sir..

Oga... You get control arm for w204...

Ndubisi. E de sir... na 4matic or ordinary..
4matic na N50,000, ordinary na N30,000 sir.

It was at this moment oga will start having little regrets on why he bought 4matic grin

Whichever way you look at it,if you have a deep pocket,4matic is a good choice. Especially with the annoying screeching sound RWD makes when climbing a rough hill. With 4matic (AWD) its like iron to magnet.

Omo! I hear say engine alone na 800k
From personal experience I noticed every Benz mechanic workshop I visited the mechanic is always busy changing Benz engine. It got me thinking 800k no be small money o especially if you are a salary earner.
Well my advise is If you get the money for the pricey repairs and fixes you can go for it otherwise run four forty. A better option is 2010 Lexus rx350 though more expensive

Apart from the 2.0T and M271, Mercedes engines are every bit as solid as Toyota engines.
