2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This V8 powered luxury coupe is a blast.
Rockets to cruising speed and handles and
brakes with solid confidence. Not up to BMW
standards of drivability and certainly not
your BORING Japanesse softness, so a
great compromise between performance
and luxury. It IS a Mercedes so a great
ride..plus the dealer was willing to deal! Not
the take it or leave it BMW attitude. I have
owned several but they lost me this time.


Best Features

POWER, quietness, luxury, style. Fold down, pass-thru rear seats are quite handy too!


Worst Features

match radio and a/c lights to soft instrument panel illumination. simplify feature menus and trip computer.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This has been a treat. I did the
European delivery program and the trip
was amazing. I feel bad that we have
speed limits in America. This car was
phenomenal on the autobahn. AT 130mph,
I put it on cruise control and I could
take any curve easily. The stability
on it was amazing and I loved racing
with BMWs and blowing the hell out of
them. I did pay the price as I had to
gas every day for over $100 each time
but it was worth it.


Best Features

The navigation system and the cruise control are amazing. The electric brakes are amazing once you know how to control them


Worst Features

The CLK55 needs a bigger engine because the difference between this clk500 and the clk55 is not enough to warrant $25000

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Not as aggressive as BMW, not as soft as
Lexus. Great combination of performnce and
Luxury in a super attractive package.
Looked at this car because ticked off at
BMW service over petty problem...now glad
of it! Still, nothing quite handles like BMW,
CLK comes close and is much, much more
functional. PLUS< DEALER WILLING TO
NEGOTIATE unlike BMW who always seem
to have take it or leave it attitude, even with
current owners(used to be 2 in our case)


Best Features

Style, acceleration, open feeling, fold down rear seats.


Worst Features

all the things the Germans traditionally ignore...cupholders, up to date electronics, etc.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased a 2004 CLK500 at Barrier
in Bellevue, Wash., in June 2004. I
have owned and driven several German
automobiles in the past and this blows
them all away. The styling draws
attention wherever I go, and the
performance and ride are incredible.
This is by far the best car I have
ever had.


Best Features

Styling, power

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have had 11 BMWs including 3 seies
coupes and convertibles, 6 series, 7
series including a 750. This cars
performance and styling has finally
approciated and now exceeded what is
available from BMW. The designers
finally put together a package which I
have been waiting for. Speed, looks and
reliability.


Best Features

acceleration and looks. The the MB dash has finally caught up to the present.


Worst Features

sure a 2nd cup holder would be nice but let's face it, does it really matter?
