Purchased the CLK55 as a Certified Pre-Owned with 18K miles already on it. Timeless looks make everyone mistake this for a new car. It has gotten nothing but praise from my friends, neighbors and co-workers when they see it. The lack of pillars between front and rear windows allows for amazing visibility. Turning off the ESP allows for a little fun and lets you turn out the rear if you so desire. Driving this car is pure enjoyment. Rear seat is tight but can fit an reasonable size adult. For half the price of a new CLK I'm completely happy with my purchase. Averaging about 18mpg but can get 20 if I take it easy. If you're buying this car you shouldn't be worrying about price of gas.
Engine sound, nothing sweeter than a big V8.
HVAC barely able to keep up with Texas heat even with max tint on windows. More than one cup holder for front seat would've been nice.
Certainly the best car I have ever owned and the most fun to drive. I finally decided to go with some elegance in my sports car purchases and couldn't be happier. This car is stylish, feature rich and a monster when called upon. I would recommend this car to anyone considering a upper- crust sports car or who wants some oomph in a stylish daily driver.
Key specific comfort memory. Great trunk space. Pillar-less window design.
The body lines are fantastic, but don't really portray the ferocity under the hood. Also the ESP seems to be a little buggy in slick conditions or agressive driving.
Had a few problems at first. The car
was designed over the heads of the
people who fix them. But when it was
fixed. It's a really great car. I have
owned 60 cars in my 53 years on earth
and they did a good job the only one I
would rather have is a sl 55
many but key less is great
seats are a little uncomfortable if
your on a long drive but they are sure
