2005 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Convertible CLK320 2dr Cabriolet (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent all around vehicle. Some obvious features missing that is found in lesser priced vehicles. eg compass, easily accessable change holder (lifting up armrest is cumbersome), poorly located cup holder without provision for passenger

2005 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Convertible CLK500 2dr Cabriolet (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

This Benz is beautiful with the practicality of four seats. Sensual with or without the top. Smooth delivery of power thru 7 sp tranny. Had problems with the keyless go which required a few trips to the dealership. Finally, they replaced a key component. The stereo started to blast (mostly static) by itself, as if it was possessed. It would only happen sporadically. This problem was linked to the keyless go and was repaired. That was about a year ago. Since then, so far so good. It sure does get alot of looks.


Best Features

Going topless, v8 and 7-sp , exterior desigh, minimal depreciation


Worst Features

Come on offer a 6-sp manual like BMWs, at least in an AMG version.

The cup holder still a joke and it could use more power, but other than that, a thrill to drive. Great handling, styling and reliability


Best Features

Seat belt is extended to driver, and seat, wheel and mirror settings automatically reset, offering ease of entry and exit

Better, and more than one, cup holder, Nav. system that is more operator friendly

Review

My CLK 320 is a sweet ride. The convertible is a must and makes me cheer out loud while driving. It handles beautifully and is tops in luxury. The only problem I've had is a fuse to my speakers that keeps popping. I take it out and it resets, but I'll be worried if it keeps happening. The car looks great, is big enough for four (if the back two are short) and so far, the mileage is OK. About 20 mpg. Everything is automated, the sound system sounds superb, it handles well and it just makes you feel like a million. Since I'm a new owner, I can't say how the service is but it had better be great or I'll change this review. Overall, I love this car.


Best Features

Of course the number one feature is the convertible. It is automatic and takes only twenty-some seconds. It has a glass rear window and no leaks or noise. The styling is low to the ground and much sexier than past CLK models. The ride is smooth and sporty, but it has room for kids and groceries.


Worst Features

Make the smart key easier to read. Symbols are black on black but white on black would help. Only one cup holder. Need another for front passenger.

Review

The car looks and runs great. It is a pleasure to drive. This is my 16th Benz, and they are still great. I also have a BMW 745IL, but enjoy the Benz much more.


Best Features

Just as in real estate, the measure is location, location, location. In this case the measure is Benz convertible, Benz converible, Benz convertible


Worst Features

Get rid of the dopey seat belt extender and add automatic side view mirror retactors. Add about a foot in length so that you can actually carry rear seat adult passengers.
