Hello everyone, I am actually from Parma Hts, Ohio. More people recognize Cleveland, its about 15 minutes away.

I am a first time Mercedes owner and have jumped in with both feet. Back in November we bought a 2003 CLK430 Cabriolet for my wife. She traded her 2003 V6 mustang on the CLK and couldn't be happier. We took the car to the local M/B dealer and it was given an A+ bill of health.

we took the CLK on its first road trip a about a month ago and just couldn't believe a 10 year old car would perform and be as comfortable as it was. We even averaged 27.5mpg @ 75mph. With this in mind, I started looking for something for myself. I ended up trading in my 2012 Taurus SE in on a beautiful 2011 C300 4matic Sport. I took advantage of the CPO offer from M/B and got a super deal. I love the car, unheard of quality and comfort compared to the domestic cars I have owned.

My summer toy, is another fun piece of German craftsmanship, a 1987 Porsche 924S. I have always liked the little 924/944 series Porsche and When this car became available last year, I had to have her. A fun little car with a 2.5L 4cyl.

Hi DLC360

I have almost a twin to your wife's 03 CLK. Mine is an 04 CLK 320. I have a 2013 Duramax pickup but wanted to have a "summer" car. I love it.

Hello Everyone!

I am from Western NY. This is my first Mercedes! Was searching for the SRS light on answers, and found this forum. Looks to be very informative! Looking forward to chatting.
