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


Review

I took delivery of my 2005 CLK 320 in August 2004. I love my car. It is black with the stone interior, and although the interior is murder to keep clean, especially the road dust when you drive with the top down that settles everywhere, it is a beautiful, classy, fun to drive car. I traded a BMW 325ci for this car, and I think the BMW handles better, more like a sports car, and the Benz handles like a sedan. However, I have made the adjustment, and am enjoying my new Benz.


Best Features

Look of the car with the top down.


Worst Features

Another cup holder in front seat! Better gas mileage, and better handling.

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


Review

I love my CLK500 convertible. It is drop dead good looking, very comfortable, handles wonderfully and has superb power. The interior is gorgeous, with stone colored leather, and the instrument panel is easy to read. The stereo sounds great and the top retracts quickly and is completely out of view. The cabin noise is far less than any of the four convertibles I have owned and is, in fact, lower than many sedans.


Best Features

This car has power. It practically "jumps" across the street.


Worst Features

Only enough trunk space for one set of golf clubs.

Sleek body design, very tight and sporty handling, lots of power

Review

For my most recent cars, i have owned a Mercedes, a BMW and 2-Porsche's as "fun" cars. When I saw this car in the showroom, I had to have it. For a 4-seat convertible, it has a usable backseat. The gadgetry (I have the NAV system) is a bit much to learn, but can be fun to look at. Performace-wise, it is fabulous. I did test drive the equivalent Lexus convertibale and frankly the styling was not for me. This car has it all, styling, performance, comfort, reliablity. Turns a lot of heads, including mine!


Best Features

The engine and technology of the transmission (the 7 speed automatic), overall styling, handling and performace (it is very, very fast!)


Worst Features

The NAV system is tough to use and the handbook is simply not clear. Of course it is like learning to use any piece of technology, but this is simply too much.

Review

I just recently purchased my CLK 500. When I test drove the car, I looked for power, quietness with the top up, and overall enjoyment to drive. This car is fun to drive. I've owned Porsches, Audis, and Range Rovers. This is my first Mercedes. This is definitely as fun and as comfortable to drive. I'm still getting used to the amazing power off the line. It is also a very quiet ride with the top up. Other convertibles we test drove, were quite noisy. I'm very pleased with this vehicle. She's a beauty!


Best Features

Body style, ease of ingress and egress, comfortable interior. Love the solid feel of the car. Large enough backseat that it is functional.


Worst Features

Cupholders! There is only one, and it is a rather far reach for the driver. There is no cupholder for passengers. This rather supprised me. But as I reflect back on my other Euro.cars, they all have been one cup holder short. Passengers will just have to hold on to their own.
