Pros: Dashboard computer
Cons: The doors (swing too wide
Advice: The C2 package is usually sufficientHaving driven with 168 hp for a while, 215 hp is a marked difference especially on highway. It is slightly bigger than a BMW 3 series and smaller than a 5 series and perfect for a small family. The trunk size is impressive for small sedan. The AWD makes for great performance in winter in New York. There is no need for snowtires. The color scheme is great and the leather and stero qualities are fitting for a luxury sedan. C240 is underpowered and E320 is only sligtly bigger but with a substantial price increase. All in all, dollar for dollar, it is a great purchase.
Pros: Awsome look, great drive
Cons: back seat room
Advice: Get the premium package but forget the wheels.First of all its looks great. And its size is decieving. It drives like a sports car and handles beautifuly. the super charged engine is more than powerful enough considering its size and gas milage is well over 30 on the freeway. Back seat room is acceptable. Its not great but fine for any drive that isn't cross country. I'm 6'2' and fit just fine.
Cons: Automatic climate control fan is set too high
Advice: Get the leather, panorama sunroof and forget the wheel package, the car handles well without it and buying expensive soft tires will cost a lot.Check out European delivery; MB gives you a factory tour and two nights in a luxury hotel of your choice in many European locales for no more than the price you pay locally. Driving the car through Italy was great! Shipped over in about 3 weeks after drop-off, no hassles.
Pros: climate controlled storage.
Cons: Build Quality
Advice: Don't let your heart rule, stick with an Acura TLCar Looks Great, many annoying problems and trips to dealer. Groaning suspension, squeaky spongy seats. Pricey for a small car.
Pros: Retractable Hardtop
Cons: The doors are very long!
Advice: Buy it! In comparison with the competition it definitely gives the most car for the buck.This is an amazingly fun car to drive. Mercedes knew exactly what they were doing when they designed this car, it has all the right elements of a roadster (especially if you get the V6 or AMG). I have had many other roadsters, and this is by far the best one yet. And with the built-in hardtop you have both a coupe and covertible, all in one car. If you have ever owned a sports car this is something that you always had to decide between. This is a great car, I will be keeping this one for a while!
Pros: Instrument panel.
Advice: Symbol only. Not considered a performance machine as advertised.Car has several quirks which were not expected in this price class. The radio lacked a cd player but instead came with a casette player??? Also, the car has several blind spots to the rear causing the driver to become wary in traffic. Performance seemed similar to a much larger car with the suspension being very 'mushy' and cornering similar to a Town Car. Fit and finish were very good.
Pros: The 349hp engine..
Cons: The seats could use a lumbar support.
Advice: Get it if you can find it. They are rare.All you can say is awesome. This is the best perfomance sedan on the road for the money. After 9 months and 10k miles, it still puts a big smile on my face every time I drive it. Put your foot to the pedal and the 349 ponies quickly respond. Hold on tight because you will be going very fast very quickly. I only wish I had more roads to accomodate this truly magnificent machine.
