Benz is Best
By Mr Bill on


2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK550 2dr Convertible (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


I've owned just about everything but truly exotic cars, i.e. Ferrari, Rolls, Bentley, Maserati, etc. This Benz, with the 5.5 liter engine, is one of the most powerful cars I've had. The styling appeals to women of taste and the performance appeals to anyone who likes gobs of horsepower, push you to the seat acceleration and so on. I believe this car will become a collector's edition over time. Mine is white, with light beige seats and a black top. At gas stations people almost always say, "What a beautiful car". There are more expensive convertibles, but few with the "wow factor" of this vehicle.

Best Features

Styling, power, handling, sound system, ride, build quality.

Worst Features

Better Nav system. Lower maintenance costs. M-B dealers extract blood from you when it's service time.
