After owning Jaguar and BMW convertible cars I can honestly say this is the best of the group. The body is very solidly built and exhibits none of the cowl shake issues commonly seen in convertibles. With the top up, the car is extremely quiet and the fit of the top, headliner and the window seals is excellent. If you're looking for a luxury convertible with a usable rear seat, this car is a very good choice. Great driving car with classic Mercedes good looks and build quality. Already one of my favorite cars of the more than 30 I've owned.
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!
My personnal opinion
2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK350Brian - El Dorado Hills, CA05/12/2010
So far this car has been excellent. It is very quite for a convertible. It looks great, specially being a "Grand Edition" with AMG wheels. The front seats are very comfortable and its handling is firm. Its controls and gadgets take a bit reading of the manual to use. The audio sound system is excellent. In general, I love this car, am very happy that I purchased it; very impressed with its look, interior details, performance, and driving enjoyment.
