We outfitted ours with a power lift seat and used it for transporting a limited mobility person on long trips. Nice, big, heavy American iron. We looked at Mercedes, but they were surprisingly low power and speed limited, expensive to buy and maintain, and have limited dealer support. Mileage seemed to stay about the same, cruising down I75 at 85 or two lane 55 driving. Very solid ride and handling. It feels big, but not like a bus or big RV. Atlanta traffic is not a problem, you sit pretty high and feel safe. Punch it and you can run with all but the fastest. You can sleep on the back bench that folds down, but its not a comfy regular bed without adding a top mattress. Good blinds. Lots of ambient lights, good stereo and TV. Game consoles plug right in, too. Captains chairs are nice, the dealer suggested not getting power rear seats as they can be a maintenance issue. Kids, spinning chairs, wiring getting yanked and twisted, so we kept those manual. Worked well. To get real comfy, if you have fewer passengers, pop out the rear seats as needed. We have driven in fierce weather and it handles better than expected. We have gotten lost on dirt roads, and despite the aerodynamic package, it does go surprisingly well. And yes, I would buy another one.
