He's definitely an "auto writer" for a general audience and not the car afficiandos who read Automobile, Motor Trend, Road & Track, etc. There's no way his kind of critique would show up in those magazines. Different strokes for different folks.danketchpel said:Like many "auto writers" he'd probably be better off in a minivan or SUV........ where practicality and comfort wins over everything else.
Thank God, he sure didn't sound like an expert. Sounds like the SLK is the only 2 seat sports car he's ever driven. Compared to many 2 seat roadsters, the SLK is extremely comfortable and spacious. You can easily fit a week or two worth of stuff for a sport trip. I drove it around Germany and Austria and had nothing but smiles. It was very comfortable, I wasn't tired of shifting thru traffic in Munich. It's perfect, if I would make it a daily driver if I can. I have a toddler to haul around so I have to take my SUV.jpnwdc said:Warren Brown is not much of an auto expert. Most people don't take him too seriously. Usually his articles spend more time talking about some other subject and less time about the car itself.
How much space would anyone expect in a two-seater?? Duh!
Yes, but Eddie you don't have a wife and 4 kids to drive around daily. =) Unless you want to try stacking them in the passenger's seat.cyberdrakon said:have the guy drive a pontiac solstice and then ask him about the practicality of storage space.
Also, i drive a debadged slk55 as my daily driver. of course that means i'm a poser as my other car is more of a cruiser/show car (that is in lots of little undrivable pieces in my garage right now). His logic is flawed. I don't drive the van as a daily driver or a truck, i use those for work. My daily driver must be fast and comfortable, not about storage.
