Review

I owned a Mazda Miata prior to this Mercedes and worried about the reliability of this vehicle. However, the car has been great and I now have almost 50,000 miles on it and it is a pleasure to drive and fun when top is down on a nice day. I love the fact that the roof is solid and that I don't have to worry about the snow causing any damage to the interior. The car is also great in snow with the snow tires that I purchased only a few months after I fist got the car. All in all, I would say that I love this car and that it has served me quite well.


Favorite Features

Hard top but still a drop top!

Review

I find this to be a wonderful car to drive. Handling and performance top notch. I am a single woman and the safety features in this car are exceptional. It is fun to drive and seeing people's expressions when I drive by. Exceptional automobile.


Suggested Improvements

Variable speed wipers more selection. Placement of cup holder

Review

I leased this car brand new in 2002. The second month I had it I had to take it back to the dealer to get the driver door replaced due to a faulty seal, which did not allow the door to close properly. At 40,000 miles, the motor mounts collapsed and one of the cams had to be replaced. Had to replace at least 6 brake lamps. Twice the convertible top got stuck when trying to let it down. Was told this happens when you use it for the first time after winter. Cupholders broke soon after I got it. The check engine sensor had to be replaced at least 3 times. Warranty is running out, so I am turning it in at the end of the lease.


Favorite Features

Convertible top. Brushed aluminum finish around control panels. Tip- tronic automatic transmission. Easy manuevering through traffic. Sleek style.


Suggested Improvements

More reliable cupholders and placed differently. Condensation always dripped from cups onto the stereo. Stereo controls on steering wheel. More comfortable seats not good for long trips to the beach. More head room for taller people. More buttons and less knobs. Both side mirrors should dim.
