"I've had my 2009 clk350 for almost a year now and love it. I have the "grand edition" with the amg package. It's one of those cars that when you park it and walk away, you have to look back at it...lol. My only negative is maintenance is a bit pricy. I hope to have this car for a very long time."

"I love this car. It's fast and has a very sleek body. I think the only thing that bothers me the most about the car is that it only has 1 cup holder in the front seat. I know it's not a big things but its really annoying to have 1 cup holder in the front and 2 in the back. The only reason I'm selling my car now is because its not easy to get in and out of the back seats having elderly parents. Overall this car has been great to me and fun to drive."

"WOW!!! From the first test drive, I loved this car. It is very sharp and sleek on the outside. I've heard it referred to as a crouching tiger, and I would completely agree. With nearly 400hp, it has more than enough power. My CLK550 has the sport appearance package (AMG premium wheels, AMG exhaust tips, spoiler, etc) along with Avantgarde option and premium Harman Kardon sound system. The interior is just as gorgeous as the exterior and very luxurious. I purchased my 2007 CLK550 as a certified pre-owned vehicle from my local MB dealership and have had no issues at all. I keep it well maintained by taking in to the dealership for routine A and B Service. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for." Mercedes Benz are not inexpensive for a reason - they manufacture above average vehicles. I've been very pleased and would highly recommend the CLK550!!!"

"Bought Dec. 2012 with 21,500 miles from CarMax. Bought with the 6 year/75,000 mile warranty but as of 9/25/14 have yet to use it. The only thing I've done is a "B" service at 24,000 miles which included the cabin air filter and 2 engine air filters along with service, inspection and reset of computer(not cheap at around $200.00 but that's the total money put out in almost 2 years)."

"This is a great car. It does everything well and with style. You will feel like royalty driving this car. Do not buy this car if you are looking for mpg as it was never intended to be economical to operate."
