Yes, bought them (both were 5 yrs old when purchased) used and they do hold up quite well. Though, like any other vehicle care and maintenance is key.

That's good to know. My wife is strictly a Honda person, but I would love to buy her an MB someday.

The first one I nearly T-boned, because I was that close when she pulled out in front of me. And I'm not one to speed. In fact, I go 5 over and that's usually about as fast as I'm willing to go.
The guy I saw swerving all over the road was driving a standard looking small pick-up truck. I see cars of all types driving like idiots.

Yeah people who drive like idiots don't tend to drive one particular type of car. You just never know what they'll be driving.

I'm tired of people taking up two parking spaces or parking on the line.

I'm always tempted to key cars that are parked across two spaces. It's frustrating when it's clearly accidental, but infuriating when it's obviously intentional.

Yeah and usually when its done on purpose, its someone that takes up two spaces for their fancy car.

When I used to drive my old Nissan Sentra and would see these silly people trying to take up two parking places with their expensive luxury cars, I would make it a point to squeeze my car into the second parking space as close to them as possible, lol! As long as my car wasn't actually touching their's, there wasn't a thing they could do about it.

When I had my hot rod a few years ago, I would make it a point to park toward the end of the parking lot where people hate to park, and walk. I'm not about to be the jerk who thinks he needs to take up two parking places toward the front of the parking lot.

Ha ha I do the same thing. I drive a beat up 15 year old Honda and if they open the door and bash it I don't really care. It is worth it to me for them to be inconvenienced and have to squeeze into their car.

Do you know that there is someone at WSPD that does not like a 911 call. In April this year I received a threat that there might be something going on in my apartment. I'm really sorry, but I don't carry the phone book with me in my car; so I called 911 to ask for a police escort. The result was the operator cussing me out because it was not an emergency, and that I needed to call the regular number. I kept hanging up on her because she was abusive. She kept calling me back to complain for the next 15 minutes. When the police arrived, I told them about her, and they told me not to worry about the operator that was harassing. I sometimes wonder if the police want to be bothered. So when someone illegally passed me on the right on a 2-lane road with a double yellow line, I didn't bother to call. I just hoped that the old Chevy pickup truck that blew me off the road would soon have a terrible accident.
