Advice: Buyer Beware of this small unstable vehicleBuyer Beware of The performance The saftety features are not what they say they are in the front end
Cons: Slow off the line
Advice: Test drive it, and take it out on the freewayI love this car! It is a little slow off the line, but everything else about it is fantastic! The styling is goregous, the seats are comfortable, and the stereo is great--I can't think of anything bad about it!
Pros: The styling and performance.
Cons: No dip stick to check engine oil, I'm just 'old school'. The computer takes care of everything.
Advice: Buy this car, for the same price as a common asian luxury car you can have a Mecerdes-Benz.Purchased for my wife, her first M/B. She loves it, with the tight suspension it really feels like a sport car. Supercharged 4 cyl engine has plenty of low end torque and the 5 speed auto with manual select option is great. Car has options like leather, sun roof, 6 disc cd changer power driver/pass seats, mirrors settings and other items programed in the driver's 'key'. There were no defects upon delivery and at 7500 miles it is still free of any problems.
Pros: seats are very comfortable
Cons: no real spare tire-donut spare which is worthless
Advice: think about what you will do if you blow a tire in the middle of nowhereCar is quick and comfortable and safe but the tires are different sizes. Hence the only spare is a donut. It's good for a few miles but worthless on a long trip. A replacement tire is extremely difficult to obtain; you have to get it directly from Mercedes-Benz and getting Mercedes to honor the tire warrantly is VERY difficult. In other words, this is not a touring car. If you have a blowout you are in real trouble.
