I haven't been a huge Mercedes fan. The styling has always been a bit stiff as well as the ride. However, the newer coupes caught my eye, but pricey. The CLK350 has nice style and at a reasonable price. The lines are nice. Of particular note is the lack of pillar between the front and back side windows so that when all four are down, there is a wide open space. Nice. Quality is apparent throughout down to every detail. A lot of power for a 350. I would think the CLK500 would be overkill on power for this size vehicle. Great space in the trunk was a nice surprise. Ok, now for the negatives. One cup holder in a location above all the electronics; turn a corner, spill a coke and you've got an expensive disaster. Second, GPS so frustrating to use in its design, I bought a Garmin and use instead. Mercedes could have done much better...and lastly the comfort of the seats is ok for around town, but a long trip grows tiring and a tad uncomfortable.
Love this car! It's solid. It's dependable. It handles well and is a joy to drive!
If you are over 40 you remember the song Born Free! This car just makes you feel like you are as free as the wind blows. The size is perfect for 1-2 adults of average size comfortably (with luggage in the back seat. The truck (with the covertible storage bin) is very tight but just right for the cooler :-) The colors I've seen are nice because they are subtle. When the top is down we don't need anymore staring eyes-it draws lots of attention. After the first 30 days it's still as exciting as it was on the first night! I love it and feel like every drive is a vacation. I'm hoping it will be my last car. That is if I dont ware out the top!
