In the shop every month since I bought it.
Too many electronic features I guess,
because something is ALWAYS breaking.
And speaking of brakes, be ready to replace
them within the first year. And its not
covered. And the ride is not sporty, its more
The look is flawless.
Have it drive more like a sportscar. It feels
like you are driving a bilg clunky American
car. Not nearly as much fun as a BMW!!
reliability's very disappointing.
on a monthly basis there is some small
problem, which so far the excellent
service dept. of this dealership was
able to correct. but then there are
some problems they cannot handle since
it relates to the mechanical design of
this car. we all know the low profile
tires allow the rims to get nicked very
easily ( there is a pending classaction
suit ) the body flexes and there are
noises from the roof latches and other
parts of the car which MB have no idea
how to correct. all in all this was a
poor investments and u can get a better
car for half this price. sorry MB but
no wonder u are nbr 29 on the list of
I AM A CAR NUT. I ALWAYS HAVE BEEN. I
S,AND THEN A CONVERTIBLE CLK430,.I
STILL WASNT SATISFIED. NOW I HAVE THE
I AM VERY HAPPY. IT HAS LUXURY AND
SPORTS CAR ALL IN ONE,.EVEN BETTER NOW
WITH THE RETRACTABLE MOON ROOF. DONT
BUY THIS CAR WITHOUT IT.THE ONLY THING
THIS CAR IS LACKING FOR ME,.IS THE
THRUST OF POWER I HAD WITH THE
CORVETTE,.BUT IT IS A HEAVIER CAR AND
WILL LAST LONGER.
FAVORITE FEATURE IS THE RETRACTABLE
MOON ROOF. THE MASSAGE HEATED/AIR-COND
SEATS. AND THE HIDDEN CUPHOLDERS.
I CAN ONLY WISH THE POWER OF THRUST
WERE A LITTLE MORE..I LIKE MORE
POWER,.I DIDNT GO TO THE SL55AMG. I
HEARD THERE IS NO SPARE TIRE. I ALSO
WOULD SUGGEST RUN FLAT TIRES. I GOT A
FLAT 2 WEEKS AFTER I HAD THE CAR. WASNT
The overall performance of the car is
excellent. The issue that I have is
one of service. I had a problem with
service at an Atlanta Dealer, wrote the
corporate customer service folks and
copied Mr. Halata of MBUSA and got a
response which in essence just "blew me
off." After owning at least 5 MB over
the last 10 years I find that the
dealers have become extremely proud of
these cars to the extent that they are
becoming arrogant. Sales without the
necessary support staff means that this
will be my last MB for a while. People
do business with people who show them
that they care. MBUSA has shown me
that they "NO LONGER CARE."
