I recently bought my Clk430 coupe for 5k and absolutely love the style the interior and exterior ..but i have been having problems out of the transmission..slip codes it acts like it doesnt want to shift right? so i am stuck between crossing my fingers and getting it fixed..or getting something else i really love this car and i am going to hate giving it up..but i am scared i will get it fixed and other problems will occur lol..someone please help!):
I have this car for 3 years and is very solid. Lot of power and still feels like new. I highly recommend this car. 110,000 Miles and no issues. I use it on daily basis for everything. Mercedes benz road assistant said the CLK class is the most reliable of all Mercedes and I agree with it. For a V8 23 mpg is really good.
Brakes, Style, Engine and fun to drive, Wife loves it.
I'll never need another car. I've had this car for years, and never thought I'd like any car this much. I look at other cars, and aside from the CLK55, there is nothing else interesting, including the new body style with the flattened out belt line! Mine just turned over 120k (100k under my foot) and still runs like the day I bought it. I've never babied it, and it consistently performs. Mine's magma red, and when my friends call me snooty, I just tell them it's a Camaro SS for the over 40 set. They're just jealous. You should buy one, too!
Color, great performance, 23 mpg average. Best feature: even my wife likes it!
Traction control (ESP) could be more enthusiast-oriented. Turning it off lights up an annoying indicator, and maybe it's coincidence, but I often get ABS error lights afterwards. They go off by themselves, but sometimes I feel like its computer's programed to discourage performance driving.
This is a very luxurious sporty car and
fun to drive. It will get you a lot of
looks. It is very comfortable and the
amenities are very useful and well
positioned. The throttle lag takes a
bit of getting used to and the car
feels a bit heavy. However the V8 is
generally smooth and sounds great. The
AMG55 might be just the ticket but for
pure driving pleasure I would pick a
slightly smaller / lighter body.
Sounds great and looks are timeless.
Throttle lags a bit, even if you floor
it and the car feels a bit heavy.
