best car every had
Pros: shifting auto trans manually
Cons: no std leather seats on 58k auto!This is the 6th new Mercedes I've had. By far the best one yet.
Pros: Style & comfort
Cons: Cost or repairs & issues.Cost of Regular Maintenance was $2900 for the 1st 78000km plus too many Warranty repairs. No way I would keep the car without bumper to bumper warranty.
What's up with the Mercedes C320
Pros: safety features, body style, and the weight of the car
Cons: The way the car jerks sometimes, when excelleratingI have owned my mercedes C320 for three years and going into the third year, I began to experience a jerking (transmission/timing) type of problem. Took the car in for service and to this day, the problem still exists. The dealership service department claim they checked the transmission and cleaned the transmission, the fluid level was fine. But when I had to take it in for service six months later, they claimed that I needed a transmission flush. Now I just want out of this car all together.

E550 Convertible (382hp)
Pros: drivability in 'sport' mode
Cons: doors open too wide & there's no 1/2 way detent to stop full swingWith roof closed, car is very quiet at highway speeds. Good performer. Good trunk size for this segment. Roof operation could be quicker & backseat wind deflector should disappear when roof closed. It obstructs rearward vision.
