Put this car's specs up side by side
with the BMW 5 Series or the MB C
Class (or even the E Class) and you'll
find that it costs $10k less, has more
engine and horsepower, AND is bigger
inside and out than even the E Class.
Get in and drive it and you'll find an
excellent riding and handling car with
plenty of power. I am very happy with
my choice. However, the transmission
keeps this car from being a true
sports car. It doesn't have a
problem, it just isn't made for sporty
driving. Likewise with the V8. Lots
of power but no real ability to put it
on the ground all at once. All
around, this car beats anything on
wheels in value for your dollars.
V8, RWD, ability to load 6 CD's in the
dash. Heck, any car that can't muster
a V8 and run with the rear wheels
should should be banned from public
Gotta lay down more power (as it
appears the 2003 will do) and rethink
that tranny. The tail is perhaps one
of the worst looking on any car (also
fixed in the 2003).
