    As a truck driver I’m baffled why you would go through Nashville to get back to Kansas from Atlanta.

    Your 3rd row seats were added in afterwards, and are missing parts. The seat back is supposed to lock into the 2nd row’s center headrest area with the pull handle. The seat bottom piano hinges should also be screwed down into the trunk area.

    Bring ot back to its glory with some modern upgrades like suspension and maybe some power upgrades to see if you can make it faster. Maybe an intercooler and bigger turbo.

    Yo Eliott have a 2014 V60, been thinking of poly bushing the entire car, drives perfect haven’t changed anything mechanical yet (fingers crossed) just thinking of preventative that they’ll last longer than OEM bushings, car has done 156k miles so far & drives like new.

    Restore and refresh it. It won't be long before these are considered classic, if they are not already. I love the front end on these, by far my favorite front end on a Mercedes second only to the 57 300SL which lets face it, is out of reach for 99.9999% of the world.

    I think you got the best of the 3 cartrek cars. This car was just about peak mercedes when it was introduced. It was way overbuilt. And by the look of it it can easily be turned into a bullitproof reliable classic car. Mercedessource channel would probably approve of your aquisition. About the vague steering, it has a recirculating ball steering box and those are probably adjustable. You can probably dial out most of the sloppyness. As for the engine. A good tune up like valve adjustment, pump timing check, boost check, new air + oil + fuel filters might improve performance a bit although it will never be like a modern car.

    So as a 120 mile round trip commute this is not the best option.. as I might get 40-44 or less mpg?! Also if getting a ugly ass Prius the reliability of the battery and replacement if needed what is that cost? I’ve heard you can get cheep China battery for 1500-4K but a Toyota one is 10kish.. so hmmmm

    Just picked up a 2018 Equinox LT AWD from Hertz as a rental. Look, I hate it too, because I like low-slung fast sports cars. But in its class, it’s a great little option which improved heavily on the last generation. This video is embarrassing.

    Oh Eliot, they are slow but that one is too slow, i bet someone put the fuel injection down due to emissions test, in the mechanical fuel pump there is a bolt that you can un-screw to have more fuel, and more power, you need to adjust it really really carefully small movement does a big diference, adjust it to have idle at +-950 rpm and rev it to see if not making too much smoke and you will see a big difference as this changes the turbo pressure too. Have fun
