I have owned 19 cars, five of which were Benz. My favorites were the 1965 250S and the current CLK 350. It's a dream on the interstate but it is equally a pleasure to cruise the beach. My only complaints are that the trunk is a bit on the cozy side, especially with the top down, and the navigation system is CD driven. However, the navigation system is very good and I would never buy another car without the factory installed system. Gas mileage is outstanding. On the interstate I get 28 regularly (at 80+ mph), although city driving is considerably less. Although the model styling is a few years old I still get many wonderful comments and thumbs up from drivers on the road.
Styling, typical Benz quality, handling, nav system, gas mileage, comfort especially on long trips. What's not to like.
Voice control nav. system and telephone. Easier to read (larger letters) on the LED dash and nav read outs. Available saddle brown leather interior.
