I have the same car, except with the 4-speed. I can keep up with traffic OK, although it's very doggy going up a steep hill. It's fine on the LA freeways, although pretty noisy. Keeps up at 70 mph fine, as long as you don't mind the NOISE. Good fuel mileage, although not as good as my 300SD. I love my 220d because it's so simple and reliable.

I've only had mine for about 1-1/2 years. Paid $1000. It came with a completely new cooling system (radiator, water pump, new hoses and belts); and, five new Michelin tires.

Go for it!!
