Traded my 2000 Green Jag 4.0 sedan for this little car. All for the wife. Even though I've heard the nightmares about MB quality not being what it used to be. I've had real no issues with the car. It gets really good gas mileage. Not bad for long drives. Great in the North Carolina mountain roads. Only bad thing. The wife spilled coffee into the triptronic shifter. $500 bucks to get that fixed. Odd place to have a cup holder in a car. MB replaced the rear tail light lense for both sides under a warranty recall. Put some Michelin Exalto tires on this car and it made all the difference in how it handled and felt on the road.
I've had no problems with my hard top. Put the top up and the road noise is pretty much gone. It has a lot of pep as well. You can get up to speed really quickly.
