Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"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."

"The longer I have this vehicle and drive it, the more I appreciate the finer things of the vehicle. Handling is A+, acceleration is to be realized, and the reliability with the standard maintenance package is excellent. I will be considering a trade soon, either for the SLS or SLC or the larger SUV M550. The dealer and service have been excellent and one would wish all dealers were so thorough."
