I've always had good experiences with MB's, and so far so good. High mileage car (192k) in perfect shape - some minor electrical issues (to be expected) but overall I love it. Styling is still fresh, and the twin- cam revs freely to 7000rpms making spirited driving a ball. Rear seat is worthless unless you're an infant, but I'm 6'4" and very comfy up front. Pillarless design is *great*.
Twin-cam 24v motor makes good power, and overall fit and finish is second to none.
Why didn't they do tilt wheels? Factory Becker radio is awful.
This one is a keeper. The car has been reliable and free of any troubles. By
this model year, all earlier bugs seems to have been fixed. The style will be
hip for a long long time.
Timely maintenance today will go a long long way. Keep yours in good
shape and it will keep purring along.
Style, comfort, performance
Wish CLK was at par with fit and finish of this 2 door model. But it does not
even come close.
