"This is my second Benz. First one sold with 250K miles and still ran beautifully and looked great. The CLK 430 designer for the 2002 and older was the best as far as exterior looks and curves...this is the reason I wanted this year model..the newer ones are much more basic looking. This car still gets appreciative comments even though it is now 14 years old. Mine has the Designo trim that is very impressive inside and has a special blackish paint that is rare.. Power is in abundance and with a chip I get up to 30mpg on the highway and average about 26 overall. Speakers are premium. Handles beautifully. This is by far the best car I have owned. If you can find one that has been well maintained buy it. Don't let high mileage scare you, these cars are built to last a long time."

outstanding car if fast and good looks are #1

"I have driven a 1998 CLK for over 6 years. It is a Lemon Law Buyback and stated so on the Pink Slip. This was due to a Balast issue that is easily resolved. I love this car and would buy another one. From what my mechanic told is that this is one of the best engines Mercedes has ever built. It is very reliable, capable and powers the car more then adequately given the car was not designed as a sports car but as a luxury coupe."

"I purchased this car in 2011 and have been extremely pleased. For the first two years, I did two oil changes and had to replace a brake sensor. After 3 years, replaced the plugs and wires. For a 12 year old car, that's pretty darn good. It still rides and performs very well. The interior is holding up nicely, but one of the seats no longer works. What amazes me the most is the gas mileage. On the highway I get 33 MPG!"

"I've owned this car for about 4 months. (I'm the second owner.) I love the body style and design, the handling, the comfort, and the acceleration (no slouch). I had it inspected by a AAA mechanic last month: nothing was found to be wrong or in need of maintenance."
