Review of the 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class

  • If you long for a Mercedes-Benz grand touring coupe and can do without the CL's massive presence (not to mention its huge price tag) then the CLK Class offers an attractive combination of comfort and performance.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sleek styling, solid chassis, composed ride, comfortable front seats.

  • Cons

    Some subpar plastic trim, convertibles have small backseat and big blind spots.

  • What's New for 2003

    The CLK coupe is revamped this year and its sleeker body sports a grille that echoes the bigger (and much more expensive) CL coupe's. Other news include the CLK430 becoming the CLK500 via a larger, more powerful V8 engine. The convertible ("Cabriolet") models are unchanged.

Mb 320 clk

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

This car has been excellent from day one. My only regret is that I did not go all the way and bought the CLK 55 in the first place. The 320 is however a good compromise with good fuel economy, styling and comfort. The car handles well and especially with the sport package. My car has the classic brilliant silver with charcoal interior. Other colors I would consider is the black, and the navy. Stay away from red and white colors for this car. A winner is the silver tones, in the classic spirit for MB race cars!

The car has been great since day one. It has been reliable, fun to drive and no repairs other than tires. The ride was fantastic and attention to details perfect. I'm buying another one, my lease is over, this time the CLK 350 they have discontinued the CLK 320.

I have this slight wind nose that from the passenger side that cannot be rid of. The supposed "SmartKey* " Intermittent Wipers with Rain Sensors is way too sensitive. Even with little drops of rain from the tree (after the rain's subsided), it still continues to work quite sporatically - very inconsistent.

an absolute disaster...I've driven lexus for the past 10 years and decided to try the CLK. It was in the shop constantly, the door fell off, catalytic converter, gas tank problems, you name it. I traded it in for a lexus.......good riddance!
