Size is perfect. Plenty of cabin room for 4 adults. Lots of head room. Only car close is the Bentley GTC for $130K more. I'll take the E350A.
I bought this car in early 2013 with only 39k miles on it. When I looked at it, it appeared to be a cream puff. Perfect example of not judging a book by it's cover. In this short time, well, I can't even remember the list of engine components that the dealership had to replace within the first two months. In July, the transmission dropped. As far as looks and performance, the car is awesome...when it works.
I love this car. Mine is silver colored, inside is dark grey leather and the dashboard has wooden panelling. It's sheer elegance. The driving comfort is superb, the automatic gear is superb, even in the mountains it reacts fast. There are two downsides: it has rear wheel drive, which is not ideal in snowy Switzerland, even with winter tires it skids on slush. And it does have its little issues from time to time - something I had not expected from Mercedez-Benz.
Pros: exterior&interior styling
Cons: nav system , confusing at timesGreat price on a certified vehicle with 7500 miles ..love the look of the 2-door coupe & 4 bucket seats .. plenty of room for front and rear passengers .. exterior & interior are almost flawless in constuction ..
overall beautiful car
Pros: the interior
Cons: nav system , confusing at timesenjoyable car for the money ..attractive inside and out..
Owned longer than another
Pros: Reliability and tremendous good looks
Cons: That I am trading it in for an SUVA tremendous car. Only one small repair in eight years (to the a/c controller). Amazing ride and quiteness - especially for a convertible. Have received more compliments on this car than any other I have owned in fifty years.
2007 Mercedes-Benz SLK 350
Pros: the style
Cons: the cruise control set up - I often hit the cruise control instead of my turn signal.I love my car! I bought it new in 2007, and I have put 20,000 miles on it. I love the way it drives, I enjoy the ease of the convertible hard top operation, and I especially like the gas mileage. It gets about 20 miles per gallon in town and 30 on the highway (cruising at about 60 -65 miles per hour). It is also relatively simple to operate. So far, I have had no mechanical issues. We'll see what happens when the warranty runs out.
