1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Convertible CLK320 2dr Convertible


Review

It seems that the W208 class (1998 - 2002)Mercedes Benz CLK has built up quite a following. Whenever I browse through the Mercedes Benz forums, there's no shortage of diehard W208 fans. We've had ours for a few years and love it still. With nearly 125,000 miles on the odometer, she seems like she'll do another 125,000 miles easily. Keep up on maintenance and you'll have no problems with the car. Acceleration is better than our newer E-Class. But the short wheel base of the CLK makes it a harsher ride. We have the AMG wheel package so that doesn't help. Like all MBZ cars, steering response isn't very sharp but once you get used to it, this car just corners like it's on rails!


Favorite Features

The K4 Options package has every bell and whistle under the moon (for its time). If you like heated seats, heated mirrors, headlight washers, etc... get the K4 Optioned cars. This car just looks sharp! Wonderful design.


Suggested Improvements

Engine/Transmission mounts tend to go after a few miles. Not an expensive fix fortunately. Also, the brain on the computer top can cost upwards of $2,000 to replace for a new one. Make sure you test the top when buying a used cabriolet.

Review

As a pre- owned, the car was void of service records and up to date service. However, after bringing the maintainence current the car has been great. The thottle positioning sensor needed replacement and minor electical with the top. Other than the usual service, no worries and a pleasure to drive. I now have 75k on this 1999 and have plans of holding on to it


Favorite Features

Top down in San Diego, what could be better?


Suggested Improvements

Cupholder or lack there of.

Review

Overall this is a great car. With the top up it is much quieter than most sedans, and with the top down it is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Everyone loves and envys this 7 year old car. Chrome AMG wheels really dress the car up.


Favorite Features

Retractable top


Suggested Improvements

The cupholder stinks

Review

I purchased my 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK320 Convertible and have put 20,000 miles on it. I have not had even one problem with the car. My only problem is that I have a hard time wanting to trade for a new 2005 model.


Favorite Features

The supberb build quality, mechanical perfection, and excellent handling.

Review

I bought this car just a month ago and WOW! I bought it as a Starmark and purchased an additional 48 month warranty because luxury cars are known for expensive repairs. It is a used car and something is sure to break down, most cars do. Everyone just loves it and I am the envy of all my friends and family! It's an eye catcher with the top down. Just drive around the cornor and the men almost jump right in it. Performance is great! It's sporty and luxury in one car. When the top is down the back window has poor visability but you should be driving with your mirrors anyway. Only problem so far is that everyone wants to dirve it!


Favorite Features

Color (magma red),style, stereo, performance, winshield rain sensor very cool, comfortable seating


Suggested Improvements

move turn signal farther away from cruise control, move ugly red hazzard light button from middle of console, would have liked steering wheel radio control, make seat belts easier to reach
