Pros Monstrous V8 engine
Silky & responsive 7-speed transmission
Easily averages above 20 mpg (good for a V8)
Steering, brakes, and chassis are all so responsive
Timeless styling inside and out
Cons Steering is a bit light and almost 'too' quick to respond at certain speeds
Back seat passengers will not be very comfortable
Trunk space isnt as bad as metal top convertibles but still not good at all
Summary Our CLK550 Cabrio is a fabulous cruiser that's luxurious and supple and transforms into a fast and sporty sportscar whenever you want it to. The brawny V8 engine is silky smooth, very powerful, reasonably fuel-efficient, and has a nice, scary-sounding exhaust note under full throttle.
Like the review said, some of the interior gadgets are begining to show their age (lack of wireless bluetooth is a let-down), but overall the car has any luxury or safety feature you can ever need. The heated and cooled front seats are great for all-weather driving, the navigation (though somewhat hard to use) has plenty of features. The HK Logic7 sound system is also nice. You can find these cars certified pre-owned for under $40K almost anywhere and they really are a great buy. The car's design is timeless and still looks flashy and classy despite its age. The car seriously turns heads.
Overall I would highly recommend this car. It's a great used buy and it's just such a nice vehicle.
Pros Drive: Great
Exterior: Beautiful I have many thumbs up when I drive
Cons Electronics: Bad
Glove COmpartment: No Key
Summary I bought the car after two of my cars burn down in a fire.
I like and enjoy the car. THis was my second convertible, First Corniche II
The drive is very comfortable and the top is excellent, almost no sound.
The motor is so quiet that some time I think I forgot to star the car.
I install a Cartronics to lower or up the top at 25 mp
