  1. Tom,
    Many thanks for your review in the NYT of the MB C Class Coupe. I am an 82 years old man, not tech intuitive. I was interested in the C Class Sedan, but what you said about its tech and info package (.i.e. vexing) is troubling for me. Does the new Audi 4 strike you as vexing also?

    Deeply appreciative of a response from you.
