Cons: "Harsh on bumpy roads, no bluetooth, numb steering."

"I purchased this car with a 71K mileage. Drove for almost two years ever since and she has never let me down. So reliability is great. The car has a classic MB design and looks much cooler than E class of that generation. I like the fact that there are not too many cars like this around. The handling and power is superb, the steering wheel could be a little more responsive and the transmission in auto mode could downshift swifter when pressed on accelerating pedal, but other than that the car really shines in all aspects. One word of caution though is that with a low-profile tires you really need smooth roads, NYC is bumpy all over and that`s what spoils fun sometimes. But again that`s not a car`s fault but rather the city`s. I highly recommend this real gem of German engineering."
"I got this car for a milestone birthday. I wanted a Harley but needed something I could drive year round and carry more than one passenger. A black on black MB CLK320 convertible filled the yearning to have the wind in my face flying down the highway and taking the corners at high speeds. You don't realize how fast you're driving because acceleration is so smooth unlike my prior car, an Audi A4 quattro. I put 4 winter tires on it each Winter and have no trouble getting around the SUVs that have slid off the road or the front wheel drives stuck in place. On a whim drove to Mount Rushmore early AM on July 4th arriving 10 hours later to enjoy the fun. A great spontaneous ride but also safe, serious luxury."
"I've had my car for more than 6 moths. It is great solid vehicle to drive. It is the quietest convertible I've ever had. Even though the car is 11 years old, everyone thinks it is a new vehicle. It turns heads as it goes by. Very comfortable and with all the extras it has it makes driving easy. The top is only one button operation and it is completely automatic, no fuss. Love the car."
"If you can find a nice example, buy one now as in the near future these will becomes desirable classics! Especially the 2000-2003 CLK430 Cabrio's. They were made with high quality and have lasting style."
Pros: "Very well built & very few problems over the years"
Cons: "Only one cup holder"
