Pros

poised, responsive, agile like a cat, quiet like a modest recording booth, and it makes you a little more attractive lol

Cons

while shopping for mechanic 2nd and 3rd opinions one can almost hear jaws theme playing in the background. just stay cool and negotiate labor costs, quite a few places to get parts online....ya dig?

"creeping Death" She Was Once Coined By A Friend And It Just Stuck — i've rocked some sweet rides in the past, this one is my all-time fav. i've had better seating for 3rd/4th passengers, yet the wind screen gives me an 'out' when i want to ride alone with some girl i just met. i believe someone referred to this car as a 'wingman' .... it's true ;P this car carries its' weight. but don't buy this car if you ain't grippin the chedda to maintain it hot-shot. anyway, if one possesses the means - i'd definitely recommend owning one. the 03' just happens to be the car's 'sweetspot' year :)

Loved It Kids Getting Bigger Need More Room — If you have a big family this is not the car for you...However if its you and 1 or 2 others you can and will look really stylish in this White Lighting....Top down windows up is my favorite way to drive it...Wind on my head but not my face.......If your single this Car would be the equivilant of a "Wingman"

Pros

Lots of power for passing, small for easy parking, attractive and it's a MB that's built to last.

Cons

Not a family car, the back seats are mainly for suitcases, groceries etc. and not much leg space, trunk is compact. also.

It's A Great Looking Car And Just Fun To Drive. Reliable — Mercedes-Benz are built to last. Take care of it and you can get 300,000 miles .... easy. Very stylish, get stares all the time and I'm not kidding. Not sure about the back seats, nice and roomy but it's the leg space that's a little dicey. Great for singles/couple, second car maybe.

Me Talking About Clk — This car is good for spirited driving and having fun on the road. It's quite fast and not noisy. But problem is that it needs a lot of petrol about 18-20 litters on 100 km. a a a a :)))))

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Vehicle But A Little Expensive To Maintain. Even Oil Changes And Brakes Will Cost You. — This is our second Mercedes. My wife loves them. To my surprise, they have been excellent, trouble free vehicles. This thing has pep and it is an extremely smooth ride.It has the triptronic shifter and it can move. A sharp car that is great on gas. Luxury all the way!

The Mercedes-benz Clk 320 Kicks Ass! — I LOVE THIS CAR. I wish I had bought one years ago. It feels like driving a laser-guided missile. It's heavy, but holds the road like it's glued down. You can't get a better car for the money. Money well spent.

Must-have Convertible — LOVE THIS CAR!!! Will be buying another when I need one. The free lifetime roadside assistance through Mercedes-Benz is worth the cost of admission all by itself. This cr is a blast to drive, great for curves, and holds the road like it's glued down.

Great Performance And Comfort In A Nice-looking Coupe. — In addition to great performance and comfort, the down side is a front bumper that doesn't clear some curbs so unless you're very careful, you are likely (as I did) to tear the bumper cover and it is a one piece unit.
