2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Coupe (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
All in all I have to say that the Mercedes is a good car. Bought it used with 49k and the light bulb inside the speedometer went out, was $200 to replace. The pixels in the speedometer that show the gear and the temperature and the time started fading out. I have the extended Starmark warranty on it so I didn't pay a dime and they replaced the speedometer entirely and threw in the bulb for free! Car handles amazingly, not horrible on gas for a V8 (15-17mpg) Great acceleration, great handling, would definitely only recommed if you buy with warranty, otherwise the maintenance is not worth it $800 recommended maintenance services are a bit pricey every few thousand miles
Rear sunshade is awesome for sunny days. Bose sound system is OK not he greatest. Staggered rims are hot. ESP makes the handling impeccible
Hopefully some day MB will stop making cars so that they can break and charge customers an arm and a leg. Free maintenance while under 4yr/50k warranty like BMW would be good
