New Car

We took our 2002 Mercedes in for annual service on Tuesday. When we went to pick her up on Wednesday we ended up coming home with his beauty. I had the usual fight with want and need. I didn’t need this car, but I wanted this car. Then I realized that I’m not getting any younger, so why not have the car!

2017 Mercedes-Benz E 300

The standard features of the Mercedes-Benz E 300 Base include 2.0L I-4 241hp intercooled turbo engine, 9-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS), integrated navigation system, side seat mounted airbags, curtain 1st and 2nd row overhead airbags, driver knee airbag, airbag occupancy sensor, automatic air conditioning, 18″ aluminum wheels, cruise control, ABS and driveline traction control.
