This is a great car to drive! For around town driving, it has the right compromise between comfort and performance. It's soft enough so that it is comfortable on the bump and pot hole ridden streets around where I live. However, when on twisty roads in the country, it performs wonderfully at any speed you would drive on public roads. The 300 HP 3.5L V6 gives this car impressive straight line performance. It's definitely not a Porsche, but it's not supposed to be... The retractable hard top is wonderful considering the amount of rain we get. Build quality is excellent - no squeaks or rattles to speak of and no other problems / issues after 1 year of ownership.
Retractable hard top, air scarf, and heated seats makes this a great all-season convertible. Powerful engine, comfortable ride, interior quality, styling.
COMAND directional arrows and number pad hard to reach. Headlamp controls and a few COMAND buttons not fully backlit. For a $63k car, surprised that Keyless Go is unavailable. Fuel economy is poor in stop-and-go traffic.
