"I own a CLK 430 and I tell you its overall a beautiful car if your an enthusiast of high performance and styling. Love the V8 power and ESP.But I reccomend this car only if you can afford the maintenance costs($130 oil changes for example). I also had issues with my power seats, temperature guage and display -along with having to replace a bulb somewhere ever so often; trunk, interior light(both), signal, fog light(both), and rear brake light."
"I have now owned this car nearly 5 years and I have literally done nothing but change the oil and replace the crummy stock wheels with AMG wheels and the corresponding tires. I guess I have been lucky because many others complain about numerous costly repairs.
Even at 9 model years old, this car still impresses people. The design was really appealing especially with the top down.
At 67k miles this car still drives like a dream, it is exceptionally quiet inside with the top up. The addition of the Michelin P/S 2 tires make the road feel and grip outstanding."
"This is my first car. I was so excited to drive it. After a year i finally understand the word "fast". I pushed this car to the limit A LOT. I am still pushing. I have a CLK320 and ive pushed it to 135 and i can go more but the word "cop" comes to mind. I recomend this vehicle to EVERYONE. very safe car. Fast, agility is amazing, and very stylish. I love this car. No one will take it away from me!"
"I've had this 01 coupe for 6 years and it's a great car to walk back to after dinner or a movie. It's a beautiful design that was lost when they updated the design. It's very expensive to keep and there are a few things that don't work right or have broken, but I've felt it's been worth the cost as it approaches 120k miles. I hope I can keep it for another 100k. It's a German Muscle Car!"
