With performance ranging from very good to stunning, the CLK coupes and ragtops offer all the sensible Mercedes virtues of safety, comfort and intelligent engineering along with an engaging personality.

I purchased this car used in 2006. It had about 41000 miles on it.It was a great car and the first owner really took care of it. I didn't purchase the extended warranty. The first year I drove it was great. Doesn't matter if you're young or old, people will turn their heads to see who is driving this car. I picked this car for the sleek yet muscular body style that the newer models do not have. My best friend went online after I got this car and purchased a certified MB CLK 430 as well, but he failed to realize that the heated seats and halogen headlights weren't standard. The power of the 430 is amazing and often found myself flooring the gas pedal to feel the G force push lay me back.

I am very impressed with this car. It is very quick (espcially at higher speeds/top end), tons of fun, and the maintenance thus far has been minimal. This car is a real head turner. Since I owned I had the following problems: Fog light out, Temp guage loose (warranty), rear window shade replaced (warranty), Moon Roof cover slider defective.

This is one of the most fun to drive cars I have ever owned. I have owned a TransAm, RX-7, Mustangs, BMWs, and Corvettes and I must say this car is way up on top on the fun factor. Enough power, outstanding handling, absolutely unmatching looks, and a real head turner. I love the car.

Ordered the car and waited 6 months
for delivery. Anticipation may have
heightened my expectations. I was a
little disappointed with the car but
like it more the more I drive it.
German quailty and engineering are
good but too rigid for me. MBs are
supponse to hold their resale value
and I'm hoping that it true.

My first MB, and dealer told me this
was a "Gentleman's Racer", which I
originally though was kinda corny --
but now I know this is definitly the
best way to describe the CLK430. After
buying a new car every other year for
the past 22 years...this is the first
time I plan on keeping one -- there's
nothing else on the road better under
100 grand -- that says it's all. This
is one great ride.
