The 180 we had was a CVT automatic which was quite pleasant for town driving.
I currently run a VW Passat 170 TDi as a company car. Nice car but my wife simply cannot cope with the electric handbrake.
A B200 would probably fit the bill for an everyday car when the time comes to change.
Regrettably, while I thought the B Class was excellent, this particular Mercedes dealer has been rubbish so far. The Smart's been to them twice now for rectification of a fault that sees the heater blower stop intermittently. I said I thought it was the switch.
The first time it went in (two separate days) they changed a relay. When I picked the car up the heater blower dodn't work. They clearly hadn't checked the job.
Car went in again on Monday. They ordered a heater switch on Monday, just collected the car today. Half way home, I discovered that the air distribution control was turning freely, i.e. not connecting with the mechanism. Result, heater only blows in your face. Again their quality control was lacking.
