I was very concerned on the maintenance cost for this car but it's really not as bad as you think if you are mentally prepared to expect slightly higher costs.
I did have a transmission issue that kept the car jumping into default mode (3rd gear).
I hear it is a common issue.. a $900 dollar issue.
Other than that (FYI the dealership treated me very well) I brought the car as a weekend car.
power and looks make it practically impossible to NOT drive it daily.
It pulls so smoothly from the light that it is not until you look in the mirror or down at the dash that you notice you are moving so quickly.
Only car i have driven just for fun like riding my motorcycle.
The power, the styling, looks stunning with the top up and breathtaking with the top down.
The sound of that AMG 5.5 with the top down on a summer evening!
no adjustment for electronic granny.
Either too much traction control or none.
