2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Coupe (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

While possessing somewhat heavy steering this car really is an excellent performer. The V8 provides great low-end torque that's always available on command. The word that most comes to mind is "solid". Highway manners are superb even at near autobahn speeds. The voice- operated integrated Motorola v60 phone is a joy to use. The factory installed AMG-style spoiler kit is nice, but prone to damage due to the low front-end. Watch out for those curbs! And other than an absolutely deplorable radio unit (horrible reception) and and trunk-mounted CD changer (frequent skipping on bumps) the car is wonderful!

Favorite Features

Engine torque, performance, cornering, seating (for front passengers), body design (if you like the older W208 style Mercedes bodies), and integrated v60 phone

Suggested Improvements

Heavy steering, tiny gas tank, terrible radio reception, skipping cd changer
