The reason people like convertibles is because when they think of such cars, they think of driving along the coast with their hair flying in the wind. In many places, a convertible seems like the choice of transport for many people. If you want a luxury convertible with the styling and prestige of a Mercedes Benz, this is what the CLK comes in. Debuting in 1996, the Mercedes Benz CLK rivaled the BMW 3 series . Even though the CLK borrows many styling cues and was similar in size as the E class sedan, it was actually based off the C class sedan. This CLK you see here launched in 2003, as an attempt to better the likes of the Lexus SC430, BMW 3 and 6 series, and the Volvo C70 convertible.

Double Pilots

If you are looking for an inexpensive and dependable used family SUV, look no further. The first generation Honda Pilot is a great choice. It combines amazing practicality, comfort, decent fuel economy, affordability, and roominess all in a decent size. There is room for eight passengers, and this Pilot will prove to be reliable. These 2004 Honda Pilots that you see here have high mileage (see picture), but are still running strong. Throw in Honda’s excellent resale values and you have a sound buy. For the 2004 Sage Bush EXL model that you see here, it is worth around 10,000 dollars according to Kelley Blue Book in fair condition. And that is with numerous scratches and dents, not to mention it has over 150,000 miles. So if you are looking for a used family SUV, don’t miss out on the Pilot! A good alternative is the first generation Toyota Highlander.

Christmas is around the corner, and ironically these two Pilots are both red and green (it may look blue due to the lighting but it is actually a shade of green), which are Christmas colors. Merry Christmas!
