Driving the CLK 500 convertible
By NJF on


2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Cabriolet (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Picked up this car one Monday evening
after an 8 month wait. I'm delighted I
waited for it. Besides being beautiful
it drives and handles great. After
picking car up left the following
morning for a one thousand mile trip.
Can't get over how quiet this
convertible is. Almost as quiet as my
Lexus LS was. Rides like a much larger
car. Most of the controls are very
user friendly. Going thru the
mountains the car hugged the road and
took the turns like a sports car. May
be the best car I ever owned and I've
owned a bunch of them.

Best Features

Operating the top is a snap. Automatically unlocks the top and puts in the rear well without any human intervention. The Bose system sounds great and the navagation system is very easy to use.

Worst Features

Would like to see the memory seat cantrols in a different spot. My knee keeps hitting the memory button while I'm driving and it changes the mirror and seat position. If not moved it should be locked while the car is on the move.
