Review

The acceleration is incredible! Watching the top go down is almost as good as sex (almost)!!

Even with it being an 11 year old car - the interior is luxurious - black leather with the burled dark walnut is elegant. The exterior is beautiful (not as striking as my 1999 SC400 - but excellent). Everything work like it did the day it rolled off the showroom floor.

The only downside is that it isn't exactly top down weather - so I'm impatiently waiting for the weather to turn.

Of course - the only drawback is the lack of up-to-date electronics. Can't download my contacts from my phone. It handles "1-touch" dialing - but you have to manually enter your top 10 phone numbers, but the Bluetooth still works well with the phone. The navigation system is okay, but needs updating (need to go on-line and find an upgrade DVD. I updated it with a wireless back-up camera - tough to see behind you without it. I get about 22 mpg and it only had 83000 miles on it when I bought it!

Review

I purchased this vehicle used and sold my 1999 Mercedes SL 500. This car is a pleasure to drive in every sense. I wish that they would take out the back seat and place a self like Mercedes. Otherwise outstanding.


Best Features

Comfort and acceleration.


Worst Features

Back seat. Either remove or make a lay over to place packages on.

Review

I love the design, comfort and hardtop/convertibility ease. Plenty of power while not a race car.


Best Features

Push button hard top workings.


Worst Features

Harsh ride on rough roads might be solved by "ride adjustment" feature.
