Good, but.....a few major cons by Boston Driver on 07/07/2007. Trim: 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Looks, comfort, interior trim, speed
Cons: 2007 model has a rattle near the gas tank that requires a stabilizing device to be fitted. It reduces the rattle but doesn't eliminate it. Beware ! True gas mileage with conservative city driving is 15 mpg, and on the motorways 25 mpg. Average is 20mpg. The IPOD connection is very poor - it disables the IPOD which then functions as a shuffle device - you can only advance the songs or go back to the previous one with control from the steering wheel - that's it. Car doesn;t grip the asphalt when you're taking a tight turn - lots of rubber squealing.
Overall review: Looks great and has great acceleration and comfort. But the partially correctible rattle that comes with the new 2007 model due to poor engineering makes me doubt if I'll buy another Mercedes. After spending $50 000 I don't need to be hearing rattles.
