    Fun Car To Drive Sexy With The Top Down Or Up — I bought this car for my spouse and she looks great in it. The CLK 320 is a great entry level car for a convertible buyer. Handles great ride is smooth and the gas mileage is on par with a vehicle in this class with a six cylinder engine. Horsepower could use a boost for a car of it's size (215hp).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great value for convertible!

    Cons: Slow acceleration, No iPod or Aux input without expensive dealer assistance

    Sweet Clk! — one-button top down, beautiful, great handling, fast car! need i say more? Oh, and $19K for a 5-yr old MB that originally sold for over $60K, its a bargain! Quiet with top up--other than occasional squeak of the top when going over big bumps.

    Pros: one-button top down, beautiful, great handling, fast car! need i say more?

    Cons: small trunk (what do you expect?)
    seat belt rides a touch too high on me (5'4" tall)
    only one cupholder--and its kind of far away,
    and no good place to set phone where you can easily reach it

    A Once In A Lifetime Car — Loved the car. It made me smile everyday. Unfortunately, I need an sUB for the family. Car was a beautiful, handled like. Was a dream with very little extra upkeep. Was comfortable in all weather with a family of three.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A headturner with power. Has a functional back seat

    Cons: Not a family car

    Awesome Mix Of Sport & Luxury — Car drove like a sports version of a S500. It was a fun car to drive on longer trips. It was very reliable and never gave me any problems. the clk500 has plenty of power and handles like a luxury sports car should. I recommend this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Buy the 500, it has plenty of power...car felt like it had more power than my M3. It's a luxurious ride that handles like a dream with tons of power.

    Cons: Nothing really...I had aftermarket xenon headlights which kept going out.

    Great Car! — Mercedes-Benz CLK 500 Convertible, what more can you say!!?? It has the power, the handling, the appearance, the fun factor, everything you Would want in a car, its right here. Performance-5.0L engine, produces 302 HP, not too much, but not too little, Great amount for this car, as acceleration is QUICK. Handling and brakes are Top of the line1 Build Quality- It's a Mercedes! Build right, no repairs at all Appearance-Interior is top of the line with leather, heated, memory seats, with all Power options inside with wood grain. Exterior is sharp, this will get heads Turning! Cost of ownership, Gas mileage can be better, only about 25MPG's, but it’s a Mercedes. If something goes wrong under or outside of the hood, it’s going to Cost basically twice as much as you would say as a ford or Chevy, due to the Name and recognition it receives. Fun Factor-GREAT CAR, very fun especially since it’s the convertible!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Style,Power, Name

    Cons: Maintenance Costs

    If You Want To Go Fast And Still Have A Good Back In 20 Years... — So after 2 C6 Corvettes I happened upon this gem of a car... Performance - feels heavy, and consumes gas like no other (ok so 20MPG isnt that bad) Build Quality - Just about perfect, no rattles or noises. You dont cringe when you hit a bump in the road Appearance - Decent, the AMG helps. Could still use a slower valence in the front, and maybe a different hood. Cost of Ownership - GET A WARRANTY GOOD GOD. Here is a small list of prices for parts: Rotors: $2500, Pads: $600, Tires: $1000 to 2000, Oil Change: $190 - these can be cut in half usually if done yourself or by another shop. Fun Factor - Handles good, doesn't feel as fast as an M3 or Corvette, If you have the cash spring for an SL.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Corvette lilke performance, with a well... Benz ride!

    Cons: Repair Costs, Limited parts outside of dealer. Gas =(

    Comfortable Cruiser, Excellent For Open Air Driving — One of the best looking MB IMHO, a step up from the previous version, and more elegant and cleaner than the replacement e-Class Coupe. Very comfortable to drive, nicely equiped with lots of gadgets, although no phone or iPod integration. Smallish trunk but big enough for the golf clubs with top down. Very quiet top up, very little turbulence top down. Very smooth engine.

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

    Pros: Looks, engine, and it's a Mercedes

    Cons: Expensive to buy and service

    Top 10 Cars I Would Own. — This car is great. This car is how a German would build a Mustang. High quality leathers inside nice clean lines, and just enough performance to have fun with. Everyone looks at the car and says wow that is nice. However I own it not for the loos but for the fun of driving this car is made for the person that needs to get to point a to point b while having a blast doing it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks, Performance, Price

    Cons: Rainy days, cold days, days you need the top up.
