Pros

All round brilliant hard-top convertible car

Cons

16mpg; auto box; 'always on' traction control

65

Everyone Should Have One Of These — Brilliant car - great engine, great handling, excellent brakes, very quick and fabulous looks. Only available with 7-speed auto gearbox, but using the paddles does improve the situation when pressing on. Always on traction control is also a bit annoying, but is not nearly as intrusive as other systems I've driven.

Pros

Fun to drive, handling very good, excellent acceleration with paddle shifters,looksSEXY with the top down, and all options included make it a second home on wheels. :)

Cons

View over hood, no rear speakers even though it has the top upgraded sound system,looks a little "stuuby" (long nose, short rear) when look at it from a distance.

Love It. I'm Looking For A Newer One With Less Mileage And Extended Warranty. — It's not a Porche, but handles almost as well and you get a lot mor extr's for the money with a bit more power and pickup! Would recommend it for a "Young Upcoming Professional"! Not a family car so don't purchase one to take the family out for a leisurely Sunday drive!

Pros

Fast, never had any problems with it, still turns heads after five years, I never get tired of driving this cars.  Had it up to 120 mph and it handled like it was going 65 mph.

Cons

eats back tires.  premium gas $$$.  Nav. system is bad for such and expensive car.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — This car handles like a dream, corners like it is on a rail. 355 hp in this small of a car is insane and so fast. I love driving it to Vegas for the weekend, smooth ride and has lots of power to get up go! turns in to a convertible in about 20 seconds. it is a blast to drive on the twisty mountain roads above LA.

Expensive and gas guzzleing.

Fantastic Car If You Have The Money. — Has very fast acceleration and pushes you into your seat. Not very reliable but still a fun car to drive. Has good aerodynamics and has a very even look on the outside. Expensive but worth it. Low mpg and expensive fuel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Summertime Fun — This car is classy, sporty, fun to drive, not too bad on gasoline and a GREAT car to have this time of year. It is an AMG model, black with tan interior and aluminum wheels. Navigation & CD changer is included.

Still A Sexy Car 5 Years Later — Love the car - but typical sports car not the most comfortable ride compared to the C series. The seat wiring is faulty in these cars causing the computer needing to be reset on a regular basis. Find it odd, that for such a top car no gps built in?

This Is A Great Addition To Our Family Of Vehicles, Would Buy Again. — We purchased this as a 3rd car, primarily for weekend use, but I find myself driving it evenings also, just tooling around. It's a blast, drives great, turns heads with the top up or down (and especially when it is being retracted). Solid engine, perfect "rumble," seats are comfortable, great stereo, nice handling, etc. It is a great-looking car, and a lot of fun!
