Of all the roadsters out there under $50k, this one is the easiest to live with every day without giving up the fun. The retractable hard-top means you have a coupe with the top up. The trunk is 9 cubic ft, better than any other roadster. Power is great from a dead stop, but it does hesistate a little when accelerating at speed. Reliability has been great.
1. Retractable hardtop. The next least expensive convertible that has this is the Lexus SC430, which costs $20,000 more.
2. Great power from the supercharged 4.
3. Big trunk for a roadster.
4. Dealer service is top-notch. But no loaner cars.
Has some interior trim fitting problems that would probably horrify a regular Mercedes customer.
