I wanted somthing somewhat luxurious,
sporty, comfortable and partical. This
car fills the requirements almost
perfectly. My car is a gourgeous bright
red 6-spd with the stereo upgrade,
heated seats and handlamp washers as
the only options.
Even after owning the car for a year
and one-half, I get almost as many
looks as I did in the C3 Corvette I
sold to make room in the garage for the
I get 27 MPG highway and 19 MPG mixed,
My experience with this car has been
When my 17 year old every day use VW
GTI expires this car will replace it
and I am sure will last even longer.
I especially like the car's road feel,
engine sound and sound system. Running
up through the gears or downshifting a
couple or three gears to pass is very
satisfying to the senses.
This car should come standard with an
in-dash CD player. One of the
improvements Mercedes made for 2003 was
to improve gas mileage by decreasing
engine displacement to 1.8 litres.
Mercedes now has a V-6 option for the
car. I like 212 HP V-6 and the 31/23
MPG of the 4.
