    Hat Back, Top Back, Aint Nothin But A Young Thug — This car is really a great car to have when your younger because it looks hot. It performs to my expectations. It has great brakes good acceleration and tops out at about 147 which i have tested.

    Pros: Great color of car and convertible which makes the car pop.

    Cons: Automatic, with tiptronic shifting which sucks cause i have only drivin manuals before.

    Great Drive — The car was actually 270CDI, automatic, but a perfect ride. I guess they've implemented everything that Mercedes engineers think of...

    Pros: comfort, gadgets, acceleration, handling, ...

    Cons: price?

    A Beauty To Behold With Power To Spare, — I've owned my CLK since October of 2014. Not long after my purchase while driving on the freeway I encountered a bump at approximately 60 mph which placed my car airborne for a second or two, when it came down the rear headrest rollbars deployed which required resetting by an certified Mercedes mechanic since the top was up at the time of the incident. It was repaired to my satisfaction and has had no similar problem since then. Understanding this is an eight year old car, I would say it has held up quite nicely. I originally used this as my primary car to drive to client locations, now I primarily use it on weekends for fun. When I purchased the car it had 105 K miles on it, it now shows 118 K miles.

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

    Pros: My CLK is a beautiful piece of art. The lines are graceful and flowing  especially with the top down, It has more than adequate horsepower at at the press of the accelerator all wrapped in a luxurious and comfortable ride.

    Cons: Gas mileage is not the best, but that's to be expected with the big liter V8. Also repairs can be a little on the high side.

    It's A Machine. Not A Car. — Very solid. Very. Not too smart to run the wiring thru the floor board. Heavy duty mats and you'll be fine. Lifters seem to be an issue around 100k mi with this particular engine. Dunno if its due to a pump or pressure issue or lifter itselves. You turn heads in this car. Its not a C or E class. Rather a cross between the two. Mercedes doesn't make a CLK anymore. They're E class coupes now. I personally warm mine up for about 3-5 min before taking off and try to avoid short trips. She doesn't like short trips. She's a runner. Doesn't like to slow down. Loves the highway. Would def recommend and buy another one. Art in motion.

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

    Pros: My 5 y/o calls it 'fast horse'. Seems to always want to go faster. Good high end power. Fine lines. Thick as a tank. No problems with interstate driving in ANY state. To include the mountains. Plenty of power to climb and pass. Beautiful. Handles great to be so heavy. Especially if you go for the self leveling suspension. Buy this car. Comments everyday.

    Cons: Lifters. Dunno if it is an engineering flaw in the tear drop feeder being too shallow or what. Could be a lot of things. Cost a good amount to have these changed out. If you know how, about 350-500 bux and about 4-5 hours. 16 on intake, 8 on exhaust. 2 Spark plugs per cylinder. That means twice as many wires when replacing. Twice as much money too. The way they chose to cool the brake and power steering fluid causes tiny air bubbles to enter the system. Defeats the purpose of a closed system and requires one to change the said fluids at regular intervals. The manual states you'll 'feel' the brake pedal begin to get spongy. Really? Dunno if I trust the onboard diagnostic computer to tell me everything I need to know about the car. No oil/trans dipstick. Whatta dipstick move to pull Mercedes.

    Relighting About Clk — If it is considered that this has v-style 6cylinders, 218hp is not bad. But it's true this is not for sports driving. For sportyyyy driving- enough to run fast. 249km/h 0km-100km takes 6.5seconds. or in 7secs. Performance- as most Mercedes do, acceleration is little late than other German brands. Pretty good breaking appropriate performance even when drive too fast, this is reliable rotor. somewhat heavy handing that gives super stability. You can feel when you turn with clk on hwy or freeway. especially the speed exceeds 200km.. inspiring of me...liable...to ensure the safety for driver... Build Quality- very satsfied, sturdy body ( it has no b-pillar) no repair is needed unless generator makes trouble. Appearance- Good looking, enough to drive with a lot of fun. Not be disgusted even as time goes by. But, wheel bases...a bit small.. Fuel cost is pretty good, it exhausts 8km/L in urban, 10 up to 13km/L in rural. speed limit system is really helpful if you are likely to use. Very fun, 4 passengers (if 2 couples would be great), open all 4 windows will be inspired of all.. see the curve from the side line...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: For sporty driving- enough to run fast with visual fascination.

    Cons: Narrow inside, single cup holder.
