Pros Solid construction, great safety features. Beautiful inside and out. Great tech.
Cons The only issue so far is I wish the tachometer was larger.
Summary Love the car. Have had four adults in it with no problem. Great ride, and great power when you need it. Gets as good a mileage as my SLK350. I'm 6'2" and have not had any issues with getting the seat adjusted properly so I don't have to "bend" down to see. Was surprised to see that it had Bluetooth Audio streaming since in your video, the car tested did not.
Pros Fast, fast, fast. Comfortable for 4, lots of goodies, beautiful, MB cachet...
Cons Sluggish steering, could handle a bit better
Summary Posh GT car that is very entertaining and 400 hp to boot. I just sold my 2008 Porsche Carrera S and bought this cab and while it's no Porsche in the handling department, it is certainly as fast! Moreover, it's comfortable, reasonably quiet and offers the best in top down motoring.Oh, and BTW, I agree with very little the CNET guy, Mr Arrogant had to say. The Air Cap works great if you have the side windows up (as instructed to) and the car drives fine in the economy mode. I have 2000 miles on my car and I'm getting 18mpg around town and on a recent 250 mile trip I got 24mpg on the hwy and I spent a lot of time sitting in traffic and going 25-35 mph.....
After ten years of crawling in and out of little Porsche's (no complaints), its nice to have a little more room and refinement. And when you mash the go pedal, this thing does not disappoint!!

Pros Sounds great and nice appointments to the interior. Nice paint.
Cons Cramped interior for a 6' man. Line of sight was right at the sun visor and I had to tilt my head to drive. Not comfortable for a 200+lb. man. Kinda low to get into. Good for small woman or man.......
Summary Too small for me but just right for the wife.
Pros solid or safe depending if you would be faced enough to require the safety features to prevent plowing into a bus or tractor trailer and getting scalped
Cons gas hog, heavy, expensive, repairs cost both arms and a leg, dont depend on any decent resale value once the 4 years of warranty and maintenance wears out
Summary I agree RAP77
CNET is wasting my time reviewing these hogs
Isnt this the type of car Steve Jobs crusies around in with no California plates and parks in the handicap spot in front of his Apple HQ kingdom?
He does not even wear anything except sneakers raggy jeans and that raggy black turtleneck. Who wants to drive his ride? Not me
Pros comfortable, roomy in front, safe and solid
Cons expensive services, recommends premium fuel, brutal fuel economy, heavy , goofy iPod interface, bumpy at low speed , hard to park
Summary like most MB high end cars these cars are not designed for BMW or Audi drivers. They are for MB drivers.
