Pros

This is a beautiful vehicle, sleek look. Very quite for a soft top convertible. Interior is plush with top grade leather. All the power anyone could ask.

Cons

My top issue with this vehicle and my other Mercedes is the rear leaking cam plugs!!!! its not a major issue and the fix is quite simple but it is a design flaw that shouldn't exist.

Clk 350 Is A Masterpiece! Quality All The Way Around! — I purchased this vehicle used from Mercedes as a used certified trade in. Since owning it I have not experienced any major mechanical issues. It is a very powerful vehicle with immediate response to peddle. It is esthetically beautiful top up or down! Extremely quite for a soft top. I give it 2 thumbs up!

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

Pros

It's a dream to drive and very comfortable. Better mileage than I expected

Cons

Difficult to get into and out of back seat though back seat is comfortable. I wish the gas tank was larger but the mileage is good so it is not a big problem.

Love It And Love Driving It — It's beautiful sitting at the curb. It's graceful and sleek. The car is well crafted and runs very soothly. I am getting about 25 mpg going to and from work including city streets. On a trip from San Francisco Bay Area to San Diego I got 31 mpg round trip.

Pros

A beautiful and luxurious sports convertible with very good  mpg and very low maintainance.

Cons

When top is down, it takes away some space from the trunk. But there is plenty of room in the back seat.

I Love It. — it is very modern with all the safety features unlike my 560SL. the top goes down and up like a magic. I don't drive much, if I go to a shopping centre. I always park way out so that no one can put a ding or scratch.

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

Pros

I had  6 mercedes and  CLK 350 Cabriolet is the best I ever had. It is luxurious, comfortable and handles excellent like a sports car should. Although I miss my 560SL, I do not miss its antiquity.

Cons

Rear tires wear out at 17000 miles. I now put Z series tires with 50K miles warranty

Unbelievably Inexpensive Luxurious Sports Car. — I love to drive this car and will hate to sell it. It is unfortunate that in this part of the country, I can go top down only for few weeks like my swiming pool. I also hate to drive to a shopping center, because of other drivers either being careless or jealous. So I park way out and walk which is good for me anyway even in a cold windy day. I probably will back off selling this car. Mainly use this car for pleasure driving.

Pros

Tons of leg room in the front as long as no one is in the back seat.  Top goes up and down with just a push of a button

Cons

It costs a fortune to maintain.  Oil changes are in the $115.00 range.  Maintenance in general is just very high on this car

Expensive But Worth It. — The car is heavy duty and safe. You can feel the quality in everything you touch in the interior. There are a ton of bells and whistles that make driving it fun. It's the first convertible I have ever owned that didn't leak so much as one drop when going through a car wash or driving in the rain.
