2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK550 2dr Coupe (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
A very well designed and quality built vehicle. I have had many cars, Honda's, Nissan's, Lexus, Acura, Infiniti's, and even an '02 Benz (honestly, we did not have a good experience, I was a little tentative to try again), this one thus far is proving to be number 1. The 5.5L V8 power in a vehicle it's size is a lot of fun, the growl from the engine is impressive, you almost can't help but lead foot the gas pedal, because it is so smooth, very easy to drive. The weight and power combination of the vehicle is a true testament to Mercedes Benz engineering.
Excellent driving and smooth acceleration. 5.5L V8 power. no pillars between windows, gives an open air feel.
Front seats could use bolstering on sides to give sport seat feel.
