Ask me Again in 10 Years
By Dave on


2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Bought the car new 20 months ago. Absolutely love it, but I only have 9,000 miles on it. Did this coming off of 18 years of Toyota ownership. Have replaced the amplifier on the premium sound system and a malfunctioning key fob under warranty. Don't know if this is standard operating procedure for pricy German cars. Not a sports car as much as it is a muscle car with 21st century refinement. Bought it after deciding I was too old and too fat to climb in and out of a 911 Cabriolet at the Porsche dealership. Went to the MB dealership expecting to buy an SL. Test drove both CLK 500 and an SL 500. Decided to get a back seat and pay $30,000 less than what the SL would have cost.

Best Features

Switch between Comfort and Sport modes. Engine and transmission are exceptional. Traction stability control.

Worst Features

Electronics are not nearly as intuitive as Japanese luxury cars. Ask me again in 10 years.
