Interesting detail is the convertible top. It disappears down into the trunk.

My vehicle performs great. It is most responsive on curves and whenever I find a challenging situation I am able to avoid accidents. The Mercedes convertible is fun and always returns to it is proper space. It is a small car but most comfortable. My husband is 6'3 and I am 5'7. We fit fine with room to spare. Repairs are costly at times but repairs are not frequent so this is a positive. The engine is quick and responsive. I love my car.

It has a powerful yet economical diesel engine.

Good power from diesel engine and auto transmission combination. Good mileage on long trips and short trips alike. Expensive repairs when they are needed.

- Dennis K

It is safe!!! And reliable. Fun to drive. And a looker.

I love the ride! I love the breeze in my hair when the top is down. I dislike the expensive upkeep! The vehicle is nice overall.
