A liitle about me. in the past five years I have owned two Vettes.and a Miata....Was looking at the new ND Miata and it was king of a let down. As I was leaving the lot I saw this red roadster. A closer look revealed it was a Mercedes.......Darn. I deel t is a tad showy.......But no more than a Corvette. I have ZERO knowledge of the brand and as the years went by I heard these horror stories about buying them without or out of warranty. I will pay the dealer for service if it's reasonable. One of the things I want to learn here . Is the car problemsome or very reliable . Does every one use the ABC Service with the dealer? I have never had a Merceded and don't want to appear showy.... and it's red In any ase I am sure most of not all my answers will come from reading the threads.......I really want to like this car.....and I want to blow $28000.
