2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Coupe (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
Bought it a year old. Lot's of fun. Only have 18k
miles on it after two years. Bad news. Front AMG
bumper cracks easily. 3000 to replace. Also have a
lot of new squeaks in front seats. Tires replaced at
12K miles. Bad city gas mileage, but good on
highway. Nice transmission, great seats, good
room for 4 people. POWERFUL engine, which
moves..Best body style so far. Had fuel sensors
replaced twice - under warranty. But love look and
feel of heavy car. Feels very strong and safe. Not
sure how resale value will be. Recommend buying
extended warranty before original exprires.
Body styling, safety, adaptive transmission, large
trunk. Not too much plastic inside - controls easy
to use and read
Body style discontinued in 03. Not a fan of new.
Park carefully, those front bumpers are easily
damaged and very expensive.
