2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolet

As Don Sherman and others have noted, the E350 is more of a cruiser than a sports car, or even a sporty car, but it's hardly a Chrysler LeBaron. Steering is precise, turn-in is quick, the brakes bite hard, and the suspension is firm yet comfortable in that inimitable German fashion. Like everyone else, I put the top down even though Michigan's idea of a nice spring night is 45 degrees and damp. The top takes its time folding into the rear enclosure, going through several steps with retractable-hardtop-like complexity. Even though I did not activate the air scarf until the end of my commute home, I found the Mercedes more than livable at speeds up to 55 mph.
