I love my Mercedes, the fact that you can go from hard top to soft top in a few easy minutes. There is room for a couple of bags in the back "seat", unlike other sports cars where you don't even have room for a purse. The ride is like sitting home in your livingroom. The gas mileage on mine is 30-32 mpg on a trip. It's an all around beautiful car. I am not an engineer, but I see no improving on perfection here. I have driven them all, I wanted to before I made an educated purchase and this was the only one standing at the end of the tests, all things considered, gas mileage, comfort, style, class.
The back "seat" area. All the others, Audi TT, BMW Z3 or Z4,Porsche, etc, no room for anything else. This car leaves nothing to want. Still more room in the amazing trunk, I can take everything I need for a week or more.
Amazing car all around...perfect mix of performance, comfort, convenience and luxury. Drives like no other car, with endless smooth V12 power on tap right under your right foot. Truly an amazing thoroughbred.
Mostly that wonderful V12...but also the hardtop/convertible idea
Gas mileage is truly miserable...getting about 10 MPG so far. Also, limited interior storage.
I have admired the Mercedes Roadster
since it was a 190SL. Finally decided
this was the time. I am not a sportscar
person. This car is a luxury car that
happens to look sporty. Perfect! Plenty
of power to spare and love the handling
on corners. Mercedes service has been
German solid engineering at its best.
This model superseeded in 1990 the
classic 106, which only lacked the
My car is 'Sport' version, It seems
bulky, in spite of its modest
dimensions. It is more of a luxury
convertible 2 seater limousine then a
nimble sports car.
Seats are better then most American
cars. Everything works with monotonous
regularity - it is not an exciting car
to drive, but to be seen in!
Impressive looks and reliability- an
old pair of good shoes.
Plastic rear window a disaster ! The
model has been replaced by an
overpriced, a little more lithe,
inconspiquous looking technologically
This is the car! this in my mind was
the best car ever made by mercedez!
its sporty, its luxury and well its
gorgeous! the car drives great! the
suspention is perfectly regulated for
higway driving and city traffic!
Balance between a sport and luxury!
drives unbelievably!!!! and i mean it!
