Owned longer than another
Pros: Reliability and tremendous good looks
Cons: That I am trading it in for an SUVA tremendous car. Only one small repair in eight years (to the a/c controller). Amazing ride and quiteness - especially for a convertible. Have received more compliments on this car than any other I have owned in fifty years.
Pros: Great car
Cons: The car is the bestGreat car
Best vehicle ever
Pros: Overall ride and handling -- and its a great looker also.
Cons: power window button for the driver's side window is awkward to accessHave owned BMW M3 for nine years -- but this M-B is tops in my book. It cruises the highway at 2000 rpm (doing 77 mph) and still has the torque to get up and go higher from there. The ride is firm and reassuring. I'm disappointed that M-B has discontinued making the CLK.
2006 CLK350 Cabriolet
Pros: Black rag top with Capri blue body and stone interior
Cons: wish it was the v8I bought this car used and it is smoother and quieter than any new car I have been in. The lines are beautiful the car accelerates great and I have not had any trouble with it.
Pros: The instrument panel reads out the direction you are heading and the street you are on.
Cons: The navigation system, though very well done, is overpriced at $4k.
Advice: If the CLK you are looking at does not drive like new, find another.Owner 2009 CLK350 Cabriolet 22000 Miles So Far Outstanding in every regard. Fit and finish are superb, elegant in every way. Not as fast as the CLK550, but much faster then what the critics have to say. I would say the ride is much more comfortable then a BMW 3 or 6 series, and the handling for my daily driving is much better then it needs to be. Regarding wear and tear, which was a major concern of mine, all of the leather, glass, top, instrument look as good as new...and I have compared with new.
