    Car was great all around but...typical German plastic trim, sun damage, brittle and misaligned.

    The color is Black, which absorbs the suns rays and touching the surface on a hot day could burn your skin.

    Never Thought I'd Own! — I pretty much love everything about the car! It shifts smoother than any transmission (auto) that I've ever driven. Leather interior makes it feel even more quality. It goes kind of fast though...I've already gotten my first speeding ticket! ;)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power! Convertible!

    Cons: Gas mileage isn't so great....only had for 2 weeks and CD changer went out on me so I had to put over $700 into another system.

    Gorgeous — This is an awesome ride. The handle and suspension are high quality and once you get into the the drivers seat, you know your driving not only a high end luxury vehicle, but a Benz. Well kept and clean on the inside and out!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Beautiful looking car that's fun to drive.

    Cons: Uses premium gas only.

    A Four-passenger Exotic Sports Car With Mercedes Quality And Class — A used CLK AMG Cabriolet with low miles could be the best sports car bargain out there. They are rare, but any Mercedes dealer can service them, and the driving experience will make you smile every time you get in.

    Pros: For anyone looking for a practical exotic convertible, this could be the best. Yes, it can seat four adults, though those over six feet tall may not want to get in the rear seats, and it can be a challenge to enter and exit the back seats with the top up. But everyone who does fit will be comfortable in the luxurious leather. This car is wonderfully proportioned, sleek and classy. People notice it. It also is quick, with 370 hp. The transmission is amazing, with comfort, sport and manual settings. The last allows you to use steering wheel "paddle" buttons to shift for yourself. Handling and braking are exceptional, even with the superb ride that is firm but not harsh. The fabric top is three layers thick and can turn an open-air sports car into an amazingly quiet coupe. The AMG modifications transform a very nice car into a world-class ride.

    Cons: This is an expensive vehicle from day one. It is very sophisticated and built for high performance, and parts can be costly, though not in the same stratosphere as those for a Ferrari. More like a Porsche. It also is a convertible, which leaves limited trunk space when the top is down, though when it is up, capacity is good for a sports car. Fuel mileage is mediocre: around 17 mpg in town but as much as 24 mpg on the highway if you exercise restraint with the speed. This is no luxury sedan, and it isn't the full-blown sports car that an SL model is. So it's sort of a compromise, and for some that will always be a negative.

    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.
