ReviewMy '02 CLK just had its 1yr anniversary, and I must say I LOVE THE CAR. This is my first MB and probably won't be my last. Lots of power & comfort, very aggressive yet forgiving. Gas mileage is about the same as my V6 Accord. Safety & luxury features are in abundance. Everything is very ergonomically designed, and the infrared keys are the best. The pop-up trunk makes loading easy, and remote open/close windows and sunroof are nice. Engine noise is practically unheard of from the inside cabin (opposite of BMW). Acceleration & braking is very smooth (opposite of BMW).
Best Features2002 is the last year for the W208 CLK in the coupe body. Very aggressive lines, stands out in the crowd, makes its presense known. The new W209 CLK (2003+) is a joke, looks too feminine, very weak lines and sits too high off the ground.
Worst FeaturesMB needs to make an in-dash CD as standard equipment. And, of course, the tilt steering wheel. Standard Xenons would be nice. Nothing else needs change.
