2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had nothing but troubles. Catylitic converter went out. Speaker problems, rattle in wood trim, EC button problem, ABS problems, malfunctioning key. You get the idea. The car also has accessive ratling.

2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The car lives up to everything I have enjoyed about Mercedes. I have had three other models and this one is the most fun to drive.


Favorite Features

The touch shift auto transmission, lets you drive with the flexibility and power of a standard transmission without the hassle of a cluch. The auto intermittent wiper is a great feature that works very well.

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

2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK55 AMG 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A great driving car in the mountains and for road trips with 7-8 day durations. Trunk is large enough for two sets of clubs and luggage for two for a full weeks travel. The power calls one back to the days of the pony car. When shopping for a new toy considered the Porsche 911 and the new Jag, but there was no contest. Power and speed plus a trunk gave the CLK a major edge. Having owned more than 15 sport cars during my time and 10-15 luxury type sedans, this is the most fun and responsive car yet. Features I like are the throaty V-8 when the peddle hits the metal,the passing power, and the downshift capability in the mountains.


Favorite Features

power and luggage


Suggested Improvements

bigger in the rear seat.
