    Great Car! — Car is very attractive. Build quality, fit & finish excellent, inside and out. Handling excellent, ride quality stiff but comfortable. Comand system navigation somewhat cumbersome, but climate & audio functions intuitive & easy to use. Has ample power with decent gas mileage; transmission very smooth & seems to always select the proper gear for driving condition. unlike some other automatics. Car is a blast to drive on twisty troads.

    Pros: very crisp handling; ample power for a 6 cylinder; sharp looking; very comfortable front seats, even for long drives; gas mileage not bad

    Cons: back seats useless for normal sized adults; top squeaks on windshield header

    The Infamous Benz Convertible... The A209 Clk350 — Mercedes introduced the CLK convertible back in 02', and the have not majorly redesigned the CLK. As the last year of the A209 production, this second generation 09' CLK350 is not that much different from the previous ones. With a 3.5L V6 engine pumping out 268hp and 258tq, it needs just a tad more power to haul its heavy convertible mechanism. The seats are moderately comfortable for a car at this price range, while the interior design should have been updated a long time ago. The navigation is the hardest ever to use; even the BMW iDrive is more user friendly than the Mercedes Nav of this generation. In terms of driving, the pickup is pretty good for such a heavy car, and when the top is down, one could care less about how fast it goes. Overall this is a great vehicle but not worth its price tag, in my honest opinion.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Luxury, styling, gas mileage, good sized backseat for a 2-door

    Cons: Handling, navigation

    Clk 550. It's No Fun Driving A Super Car Unless You Get Scared Stupid Every Once In A While. — Acceleration is blistering, with the traction control disabled, you could spin the tires all day long. Initial build quality leaves something to be desired. The power steering fluid leaked into the rack which required the entire rack to be replaced with 400 miles on the clock. A lot of fun to drive, am not convinced the car has the correct suspension. At times it feels too soft, and at over bumps or with potholes too stiff. GPS time is 5 hours and 3 minutes offset from system time. MB can't figure out how to fix it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: More than enough power.  Great handling

    Cons: Convertible top sensor often infuriating.

    Excellent, Sporty, Fun To Drive. Head Turner. — Handles great. Very quick and responsive. Especially fun in the spring/summer months. Great for day to day needs. Good trunk space, even more when top is up. Not neccessarily ideal for large families, but great for individuals or couples.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent Summer Car. Fun to drive. Sporty.

    Cons: Not much cargo space

    Es un auto inicialmente desconocido... en baja velocidad se mueve y se siente pesado... pero si pisas el acelerador da un salto instantáneo. En carretera a 120 km/h se trasforma en un auto seguro para la familia... pero si vas solo y puedes correr uffff modo sport y 160, 180 y 200 si vas solo... ágil, de fácil gobierno y con respuesta 100% en frenos.
