Most fun I've had driving a car

This car is sporty all over the place. It's fun to drive and handles extremely well. I especially love the top down. If the outside temp is around 50 to 60 degrees, you can still have the top down, just roll up the windows and turn the heater on and it's a beautiful ride!! I've driven this car on a trip of 400 miles and the whole time I was comfortable without feeling like I had to stop and stretch my legs. New in '09 iPod integration is awesome! Now I can listen to my own tunes through the car's speakers and I can enjoy every one. Handsfree bluetooth is great, but with the top down others have a little harder time hearing you, especially on the freeway. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!

The CLK delivers excellent performance and although it is an automatic transmission, it can be driven as a manual transmission car as well. The exterior styling is outstanding and generates a lot of attention. The interior features are of such a high standard, it feels as though you are sitting in the comfort of your own home.

Just came off lease and was able to pick up low mileage (18K) CLK350 coupe for a very reasonable price and still had factory warranty. My first Mercedes and very impressed with overall build, handling and performance. This has "Sport" option which adds cross drilled rotors, lowered suspension, AMG exhaust, contour'd steering wheel and subtle body pieces. I like it ;-)

This car replaced a 2005 Mercedes CLK-320. Only reason in trading was this car had low mileage and a great price. This car drives like a sports model with plenty of pep and good gas mileage. This model had updated technology, a real plus.

Nice looking car with sleek design. The 5.5 V8 engine is very responsive and fast. I put 19" MB wheels on mine and it really makes a difference appearance-wise. Overall, this car has held it value and it's looks over time. Keep up on the maintenance!

Our MB CLK 350 Cab is in almost factory NEW condition. We had a 2000 CLK 320 Cab, drove it for more than 302,000 miles and wanted the same caliber car to replace it. Being retired, we couldn't REALLY afford a NEW MB, so I went to CARS.com and started researching. After a couple of weeks, we discovered this GEM, 2009, 18,000 miles, garage kept, with many excellent features including Blue Tooth Hands Free Communication Kit and DVD Command Navigation P01 Premium package and P90 Appearance package. My wife and I feel we are in Camelot, enjoying our 4th Mercedes which may outlast us!!! We already LOVE Camie!!!!

Recently purchased 2009 CLK350 cabriolet with 39,000 mi. and my wife and I are loving it. Just such a pleasure riding around cool summer evenings with top down. Car drives like a dream. Always wanted a convertible- my first and this was a steal and met all expectations. Nav system is dated of course but works fine as does bluetooth. Just takes a little longer to program but that's to be expected since it's an '09. Top goes up and down in less than 30 seconds. Very happy.

Lot of Bang for the Buck

by from Fort Myers, FL on September 1, 2016

Bought an '09 CLK350 coupe. These cars are low cost to acquire and maintain, high value used as long as they've been properly maintained. The CLK is made a little better by the optional sport package which lowers the suspension, adds AMG wheels and exhaust, upgraded brakes, and just makes the car look a little sportier. Weak spot? Sure, the nav system is lousy, and expensive to update, and the controls are confusing. Other than that, these cars are wonderful to drive, with more than enough power in the 3.5L V6. I'm getting 23 mpg around town, and almost 30 on the highway, not bad at all. Car does require premium gas, so some of that mileage savings is eaten up by premium gas prices. Would I buy one again? Yup. Do you really need the V8? Nope. Overall a great car, and a bargain.

Absolute pleasure to drive

Just bought a used '09 CLK550 convertible, and so far I love it. These are hard to find, plenty of CLK350s around, but I wanted the big V8, and I'm glad I held out for one. Has something of a Jekyll and Hyde personality. You can drive it around town and barely touch the gas pedal, and not exceed 1500 rpm. Driven like that everything is very serene and relaxing. You won't hear the engine, or much of anything except the music you're enjoying. When the opportunity arises you can stomp your right foot down and the slumbering beast wakes up with a snarling growl, and you take off like a rocket. Great fun of course. I'm 60 years old and should be too mature for such adolescent frivolity, but oh well. I like riding motorcycles with big engines for exactly the same reason. Not much not to like really - the steering is a little light and over boosted for my taste. It doesn't have the feel of say a BMW 3 series, at least when they still had hydraulic power steering. Of course gas mileage isn't great, but if that's a big deal to you then you should maybe consider a Prius instead. I know which of us will be grinning ear to ear. Overall the feeling is that the car is very well built and reassuringly solid. I think I'll be enjoying this one for a long time to come.
