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.
Acceleration, the look. Very comfortable seats, silver color is terrific.
Cupholder is a joke. It simply can't hold a biggie drink in it without wobbling
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.
Love the rear wheel drive, interior and
exterior are beautiful. Leather is
durable.Turning radius is great.
Put wings on it so it can fly me to
heaven, cause thats how I feel when am
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.
Acceleration and body
Cupholder could be sturdier and the CD
changer is a pain in the trunk.
The purchase of the MB 320 SLK was the
result of my wife's refusal of the
offer of a Porsche Boxter, a decision
we have not regretted. Although a six
cylinder model we have been impressed
with the acceleration and handling and
its appearance draws attention.
I love this car, it has to be one of
the most beautiful cars on the road.
Even now after 3.5 years people still
stop and stare. The car is very
reliable, I've taken it in for every
scheduled maintenance call, (the
computer makes it easy to remember) and
if it wasn't for the fact that my kids
are getting to big to fit in the back
seats, I would keep this car forever.
