Fresh From Miami Beach! Certified Pre Owned Mercedes CLK550 Convertible In Stock Now, Special CPO Financing Available!

Mercedes CLK550 Cabriolet

The CLK is a classic Mercedes-Benz Convertible and this 2009 model represents the ultimate evolution of the CLK before it was discontinued and made way for the E class convertible for the 2010 model year. This is the big V8 version of the CLK, the CLK550 cabriolet.  (see below for a copy of the original equipment list).

This vehicle is being offered by Sears Imports as a Certified Pre Owned vehicle carrying extended Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre Owned warranty. The car went into service originally in July of 2009 which means the original factory new car warranty is still intact until July of 2013 or until the odometer reaches 50,000 miles. When that occurs the additional Certified Pre Owned warranty kicks in which is one more year of warranty or until the car reaches 100,000 miles, whichever happens first.

This CLK550 is very well equipped, it has a black exterior with black leather interior, it has the wood steering wheel option, heated and ventilated seats, KEYLESS GO, the Premium I Package (P1 Package) which includes things like the harmon/kardon stereo upgrade, satellite radio, and iPod kit and a host of other features that set this CLK cab apart from the more pedestrian CLK models out there.

You get what you pay for, and in this case, the value proposition is hard to deny. Originally costing more than $71,000 as a new vehicle just a few years ago, it represents an incredible value today, it’s priced at just $41,900 with a mere 21,444 original, one owner miles, it was a one owner lease from Miami Beach, FL that we just purchased from Mercedes-Benz Financial.

Special Finance Rates are available from Mercedes-Benz Financial this month on CPO CLK models, 1.99% up to 36 months, 2.99% up to 48 months and 3.99% up to 66 months. Give me a call today if you’d like more information or if you’d like to schedule a test drive.

New Mercedes Deals for September! Special APR Interest Rates on Remaining 2011 Model Mercedes Benz Vehicles

Mercedes special APR
The end of the model year is upon. Because most automakers scaled production back during the tough economic times over the past year and a half or so (Mercedes included) inventories aren’t as big as in some previous years, however, there are some great deals to be had on the last remaining 2011 model Mercedes-Benz vehicles, especially the cars on the upper end of the price scale. While special APR interest rates are available across the product line, and very good rates all the way around, it’s the top end S and GL class buyers who will enjoy the lowest interest rates for the longest terms when financing new vehicles during the month of September 2011.

mercedes interest rates
Special new vehicle APR interest rates from MBF for September 2011.

How does 1.9% APR sound for up to five and a half years on the purchase of a new S class or GL450 or GL550? Such rates are unheard of on these cars at the highest end of the Mercedes Benz price spectrum, I’ve never seen rates this low for long term loans on these models, ever!

Buyers of the bread and butter C and M class vehicles benefit from low 2.9% financing for up to 66 months, while E class cars (including diesels) get 3.9% special APR interest rates out to 66 months.

It is true that there isn’t the glut of unsold 2011 inventory sitting on dealer lots, the inventory numbers are way down over previous years, so if you find a car that works for you and you can take advantage of these interest rates there is really no time to hesitate. Dealers will be less and less apt to ‘dealer trade’ for a car built just so as the last of the 2011s begin to disappear. Of course, you can get whatever you want by placing a factory order for a 2012 model, but if you’re looking for the proverbial “DEAL”… you’re going to have to make due with what’s still available, time is short, you should move quickly.

2012 models are currently all using standard bank rates, NO SPECIAL FINANCING, except on 2012 GLK models which are available with 2.9% special APR from Mercedes-Benz Financial.

Mercedes Benz Adaptive High Beam Assist: New Feature or Old News?

What does this 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 4matic sedan have in common with this 1960 Cadillac convertible? They both have an automatic headlight dimming system! Mercedes-Benz made the Adaptive High Bean Assist feature available on the ‘new body style’ E class cars in 2010. The systems essentially keeps an eye on the road ahead of you at night, while you’re driving with your high beams on a desolate road, the car can sense the headlights of oncoming traffic up ahead and automatically dim the headlamps as not to bother the driver of the oncoming car.

The technology Mercedes-Benz uses is a sensor embedded in the top of the windshield. It’s considered a safety feature by Mercedes-Benz, as it allows you to have the best, brightest lights blazing when appropriate, giving you a commanding view of the road, even at night to keep you safe. One might also consider it a convenience feature, as you don’t constantly have to adjust your high beams as oncoming traffic appears. Learn more about the Mercedes-Benz Adaptive High Beam Assist feature on the E class HERE at MBUSA.com.

Notice the light sensor on the dash of the 1960 Cadillac.

What’s funny is that a similar system was available on a number of American made vehicles, most notably, Cadillacs beginning in the mid 1950s. The red 1960 Cadillac convertible pictured here was at Lake Country Classics in Minneapolis when I visited that shop last week. Bruce Kelly, proprietor of Lake Country Classics and vintage Mercedes-Benz SL authority generally works on and restores Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the occasional Jaguar, but this time he had a customer’s 1960 Cadillac convertible on hand.

I saw this thing sticking up on the dash of the Cadillac and I asked him what it was for. Bruce explained to me that it was the sensor for the automatic high beam adjustment. When it senses the headlights of an oncoming car it automatically adjusts your high beams back down to the regular headlight setting… on a 1960 Cadillac, it was available earlier than that, in the mid 1950s.

Of course, the technology Mercedes-Benz employs for the Adaptive High Beam Assist feature is far more advanced that what Cadillac was using 50 years ago. The modern Mercedes-Benz system works better, more efficiently, more quickly and more reliably than the old Caddy system, but it’s interesting to know that the idea of not having to worry about blinding oncoming drivers at night with your high beams was thought about and essentially ‘solved’ more than 50 years ago in Detroit.

There is always something to see and learn when you visit Bruce at Lake Country Classics in Minneapolis, it’s a bit off the beaten path, but if you can find it, it’s worth a visit. This 1957 Mercedes-Benz 190SL was parked next to the Cadillac when I arrived last week. The 190 is currently for sale on eBay… with its $35,000 reserve price already reached with about 5 days left in the auction.

Mercedes Benz Competitor Conquest Program! Save Up to $1,500 If You Own One of These Makes…

Do you currently own one of these makes? If so, you can save up to $1,500 on a new Mercedes-Benz!

That’s right… the Mercedes-Benz Competitor Conquest Certificate Program for the month of March 2011 is in place!

**The Competitor Conquest Program is active through the end of October 2011, click this link for details! This article was written back in March of 2011, discounts are BIGGER in October 2011 Click this link for new info on the most up to date program!**

So.. how does the Conquest Program work?

If you currently own and have a valid registration for any model from these manufacturers you qualify! BMW, Audi, Porsche, Lexus, Acura, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover / Range Rover or Cadillac. If you purchase or lease a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle you will be eligible for  $1,000 towards that new 2011 model Mercedes-Benz. If you are purchasing or leasing a CLS or E Class vehicle from Model Year 2011 you are eligible for $1,500 towards that purchase. (SLS AMG vehicles and Sprinter Vans are not eligible for this program.

This is a limited program from Mercedes-Benz. Each dealer has a finite number of ‘control numbers’ to use for this program. Once they’re gone, they’re gone and the extra $1,000 or $1,500 is gone and no longer available.

This is a fairly straight forward program, it isn’t able to be used in conjunction with the European Delivery Program and some of the other programs out there at this time. You don’t need to necessarily trade in the competitor vehicle, just prove that you own it by presenting the current registration for the vehicle. So… if your husband drives a BMW and you want a new Mercedes, present the registration card for his car and you’re set.
