 o
Luxury Sports Car with Back Seat.

Greetings everyone. I think this is my first post in this forum. Hope all is well with everyone.

My quandry is this. I want a sports car but I need a back seat. My partner and I have an 11yr old daughter and while this car wouldn't be used for long trips (we've got a new Lexus LX570 for that) I want to have enough room for him and my little girl should we take a notion to go into the city (2 1/2 hr drive).

So far I'm pretty sold on the Mercedes CL 63 AMG. I had my daughter sit in the back and she was very comfortable and the husband sat in it (He's tall) and had plenty of room. I would have bought it on the spot but it pains my soul to spend $152,000 on a car. I decided before I took the plunge I would see what everyone here thought.

TIA,
Justin

I wouldn't want to be within ten paces of a $152,000 car for fear I'd somehow damage it. I think if I were in a position to spend a lot on vehicles, I'd opt for several rather than one or two that cost a fortune: Sports car for fast runs through the curves, SUV for the snow and off-roading, truck for the trips to Lowe's, luxury sedan for going out to dinner, maybe a few others to round things out and provide variety.

think i would buy a used vette and a used minivan and put the other 127,000 in the market.

They could buy a Cobra, (Mustang) with the supercharged 5.4l rated at over 500 horsepower, and still have 100K in the bank.

Give me half that money and I'll show up with my wife's Santa Fe and I'll chauffeur you and the family around for two years.

I'll sell you my '90 Maxima - it's my sportscar. Still pretty zippy, too!

Why not just get a less-expensive version of the Mercedes you were looking at? You don't need to spend $152,00 for the top-of-the line. Just get a mid-range of the same model.

Check the qulaity ratings on the Mercedes...so many are a POS..some are fine...but all too many have HUGE problems with the electronics. I had a 2002...worse car I ever owned.A neighbor has the car you are interested in...nothing but trouble.

That said, what about an Infiniti G37 sport coupe? Far better reliabilty..and far less money!

Mercedes is a rip-off as so many come off the production line all show, no substance in terms of quality.
