- Great looks ride and handling
- Cheezy cup holder, check engine light problems, hard to see backing up
I traded a Saab that was fun to drive, but a harsh ride (Aero model). MB is several steps above in handling (and price). Got the Nav system with Satelite radio. Both are not easy to use. Have had in the shop 3X for check engine light and once when the cable that works the convertable top snapped (took 10 days to get back). I like the car, but for $60K, you expect more. I had a lot more fun driving the Saab, got 30 MPG and NEVER had it in the shop! Would like to see more acceleration for a six....read morehide

- Best looking ragtop on the street! Even had a guy pull up next to me and say so last week.
Have had mine for six months with no problems. I did buy the extended warranty 7 years or 100 miles for $1100 based upon consumers reviews.
Very fun car to drive. My kids call it the "Batmobile"!

- nice looking, fun to drive car with great handling
- too many unnecessary manufacturer problems
Let me start by saying that I own a 2002 CLK cab. Thought someone might appreciate hearing about the issues I have had if they are thinking of buying a newer model. I paid $62,000 for my car w/nav system, 6 CD changer etc. It is a fun car, but MBZ needs to get its act together. Things that should not go wrong in an expensive well-made vehicle keep going wrong. For starters, the cupholder design stinks. The panel that covers cupholder and ashtray area went bad, sticky and then would not close. Cupholder came loose from center panel. Door side electronics work oddly. Passenger side seat electronics not working on delivery. Sometimes the right sided mirror will change for reversing car (auto when car put in reverse), but then not come back to normal. When driving the ESS (electronic stability system) light has come on the dash and I've had to pull over - to be told that "it's no big problem". Then the soft-top suddenly quit working - it stalled midclose and service had to come out and fix. I could go on and on! The service is generally atrocious, although I have found a decent manager. Don't buy this car if you want a well-made car....read morehide

- nice appearance
- MANY FRUSTRATING SMALL PROBLEMS
not impressed with overall quality handling and behaviour in general when pushed.It is a nice and well balanced car for your sunday afternoon drive but feels small when driving fast.

- this will be my first car i purchase as a doctor.
- not enough available for everyone in the would to have.
I wish everyone could experience this car. But at the same time if everyone experienced it, that would take away from all the hard work that I put into school to earn this bad boy. As soon as I get out of Med. school this will be the first car that I purchase. Thank you CLK.

- Fit and Finish are SUPERB, Quality throughout, excellent gas mileage, engine power, styling
This car is simply amazing, the build quality of this car beats any Japanese competitor. The Germans are coming back with a vengence on their quality. Proof take a look @ the CL, CLS, CLK, E-Class, SL, ML, SLK and even the C-Class.
The CLK's top is, so well insulated that there is very little road noise, much better in improvement from its previous model. The CLK 350 is on its way, and also much more peppy, than the CLK320 was, this new engine make a world of difference.
Generally I don't like convertables, but this car is simply exceptional....read morehide
