Superlative car but real mileage is poor

ReviewThe CLK500 cabrio is a fantastic car. No compromises with this car--it doesn't even really need four doors because you can drop to top with the keyfob so backseat passengers can comfortably enter standing up. I use it to get my kids and their carseats in more easily than seating them in our SUV. Performance is fantastic. 0-60 in under 6. I've done 135 in it and there's litterally no difference in handling between that and 65. Braking is astonishingly short. Great car for family guys who want a sports car or tall people--drivers up to 6'7". One warning though: The real mileage you'll get in this car is about 16.5 mpg.
Best FeaturesThe automatic top can be opened or closed with the keyfob, which makes it far more useful than a regular convertible. You'll drive with the top down a lot more often.
Worst FeaturesThere's nothing to improve about this car except the gas mileage, which is probably impossible considering its performance.
