I purchased this car new and still have it after almost 9 years. I was driving a Dodge Avenger back in 1998 and saw this car on the road. The next day I was at MB dealership and ordered one with every possible option except for ski sack. The 3.2L engine is more than I need but it accelerates smoothly without any delays or gaps until you go above 60. The car is still the best looking vehicle on the road. Too bad MB had to redesign the look of it, I would have bought another one again. Now, I am keeping it. I've had mostly electrical problems including failed front computer twice and blown bulbs here and there but nothing major. Sometimes the car fails to start on first crank in any weather.

This is a great car. It is fun to
drive,sporty yet still luxurious. 4
years later it still runs like new and
turns heads. I have had minimal
problems ex: starter problem and
sunroof problem that were expensive to
fix.The other problem is when i bring
it in for maintenance the dealer tries
to sell me everything. Over all it is a
great car and one that I plan on
keeping forever.Maintenance is
expensive but well worth it.

No, I am not a racer. But I have
become addicted to the CLK's instant
acceleration. My only problem with it
is that with a kid coming I have
outgrown its size. Went and test
drove the new FX45 from Infinti the
other day. It does not even come
close to the handling and
acceleration. I guess I will be going
with an E.
These guys are still on a roll. Last year, Mercedes introduced an all-new sport coupe that is an amalgamation of C- and SLK-Class technologies, available this year with a larger engine in the CLK 430 model, and now they're rolling out the CLK 320 Cabriolet, a convertible version of the fabulous little car.
