"Great looking car and fun to drive, particularly in the summer with the roof down. However, in four years of ownership (from 30k miles to 75k miles) I've had around $15k in repairs. A set of shock absorbers will set you back $7.5k - although fortunately I only had to get the rear ones done for a mere $4k. Various problems with the ABC system have cost me around $6k. Three problems with the electical/computer system another $3k. Various other issues bring the total up to $15k. I will not be buying another Mercedes and do not recommend this car unless you have money to throw away."
"Purchased thru European delivery August 2008, 2100 miles on autobahn; no squeaks or rattles after 6+ years on bad roads; room for luggage on trips; remarkable gas mileage considering performance (mid 20s on highway); fast, smooth, corners well, built like a vault, and still stunning to look at. Get one before they take your license away."
Pros: "Great convertible, very comfortable, nice stereo"
Cons: "Not reliable, expensive to maintain and insure"

"I have owned the car for almost two years now. It is great to drive with the top down and my wife loves the car. It is a little heavy to be considered a true sports car, but does well with giving you a balance of luxury and sport.
On the freeway it feels so smooth, like you are driving an airplane when you accelerate. Through the canyons the car feels comfortable with the adaptive ride control, mine has the performance package.
I am disappointed with the depreciation value and reliability issues. Don't buy new and when you buy used make sure you buy an extended warranty if you plan on keeping the car."
