2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Cabriolet (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

When I purchased my 2003 pre-owned smoked silver Mercedes CLK 320 convertible with 19" chrome AMG rims and low profile tires I knew I was in for some major fun. The first thing that caught my eye (other than the glimmer of the rims) was the way the top retracted neatly into its space then dissappeared as the rear cover closed. The look of this car with the top down is by far the best convertible look I have ever seen. The exterior lines are true to a well designed Mercedes and the interior look does not lack at all in design but I prefer less plastic. The 265 HP engine speeds you smoothly around anyone in your way and the electronic shifter supplies you with the added hill power when needed.


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is the convertible top retraction process. All my friends just like to watch the 17 second process which can be done at most stoplights if you suddenly feel the need to put the top down. The entire look is insanely beautiful when you choose the right rims and low profile tires


Suggested Improvements

Improvements to this vehicle would be less plastic parts on the interior. I prefer to not hear any door noise as I pull it shut. I would appreciate a bit more leg room for my passengers also. There is no reason for a back seat if your passengers end up with very little leg room.

Review

Awesome! Mercedes for the rest of my life. After many Chevy's, Fords, Toyota's, Honda's; I will never go back. The customer service is unbelievable. Don't buy one unless you plan on owning MB the rest of your life.


Favorite Features

Highway ride and performance "The feel"!


Suggested Improvements

The only thing it needs is a better cup holder and in-dash CD changer. Kinda picky, I know...

Review

Very solid, nice power for engine size. Comfortable and very fun to drive! Useful luxury features such as steering wheel controls, dual zone temp, teleaid, nice stereo. Handling is awsome, car feels very adaptable to different driving situations. Amazing reactions from people on the street for a car under $100k.


Favorite Features

Seats, overall style, steering, Bose sound system. Smartkey is cool as well. And, nice convertible top!


Suggested Improvements

better cup holder!! Move cruise control, it's easy to confuse with turn signal.

For the first time I have found a convertible that has no wind noise and plenty of leg room.a man 6 foot plus can drive this car in comfort. This car is responsive and fun to drive and I recommend this vehicle to anyone.

Review

The Mercedes CLK Cabriolet is certainly one of the classier, good looking and eye-catching cars on the road. It is also one of the best values. With Mercedes high quality engineering and most of the amenities you could want it is a great car and a great buy. It's not cheap but it rides and sells with reliability. It's pretty close to perfect, but not quite there- no rear cup holders and an unsightly radio antenna.


Favorite Features

Great lines; great performance; Boise stereo; heated seats are HOT.


Suggested Improvements

Better Data Center; hidden radio antenna; fold down rear seat; rear cup holders and window controls; easier access seat belts.

Review

this machine is absolute fun to drive and sometimes you regret getting to your destination because the ride has to end.... Grantet you could get some good deals for $55,000 and people at Mercedes could try a little harder to be professional especially in the parts department.


Favorite Features

no doubt, drop-top.


Suggested Improvements

Stupid cup holder.

Review

No down points. Super car, good looks, great performance. Handles superbly. as smooth at 110 mph as it is at 25 mph.


Favorite Features

Navigation system and xenon lights guide you through the the world with no problem. The drop top is the ultimate sunroof.


Suggested Improvements

You Must be KIDDING !
