What a shame! Great concept - horrible car to drive. I have 5 drivers in my house and after the initial novelty period passed, no one wants to take this car. It drives so poorly. I won't drive it anymore as it's jerky ride makes me wish I has an air sickness bag in the car. Gas mileage is disappointing, car is woefully underpowered and the silly transmission should cause me to get my money back under the lemon law, the dealer keeps saying that it is supposed to work the way it works. Shame on Mercedes. I feel bad that a company like them has to be affiliated with such a joke of an overpriced car. I can't wait to sell it to some hyped up fool who falls for this scam of a car!
That there is enough hype for me to sell it to some other sucker who falls for cuteness and the high gas mileage hype.
Repair the transmission and bring the 70 MPG version of the car that Europe enjoys.
