Nothing at all!

General Comments:

This is a very handy and dynamic car. Accelerations are generous, breaks are powerful. Stability (without ESP) is perfect and I feel like the car belongs to my body, driving at 240 Km/h on German's highways. This is a fantastic sports car with high woman acceptance factor.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Good review - loved this bit: "high woman acceptance factor".

I know exactly what you mean & it's swung me on buying a CLK above a Honda Prelude (which would not please my partner...).
