2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
This 2 door pillarless hardtop is a
gorgeous example of an ultra modern
luxury sports car that provides the
open air look and fun of the bygone era
of 2 door hardtops. This car turns
heads for second looks, especially when
all four windows are down.
Performance and handling are
outstanding, yet refined, so that you
know you are driving a Mercedes at all
times. I haven't found a thing yet to
complain about; it's great.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
The CLK320 is a great little car. It
has been somewhat unreliable in that
it is 2 years old, has 45K miles, and
has been returned to the dealer
numerous time for various problems,
Overall, it has great power for a V6,
but still gets good gas mileage.
Syling is fantastic and the interior
Interior Styling and layout.
More robust interior components, with
fewer cheap plastic parts.
I have owned several high performance
cars including 2 BMW's. The CLK500
is, without a doubt, the best car I
have ever driven - and I loved the
Bimmers. It looks beautiful (I get
compliments from strangers all the
time), and it drives even better. The
engine's performance is thrilling and
the handling is superb. It is
absolutely a thrill to drive. A
friend of mine traded his brand new
E500 for a CLK500 after riding in
mine! Its also much more practical
than the SL series or the SLK, because
it has a functional back seat (I have
two young teens to haul around),
although not very good for long trips.
Looks and performance.
The GPS is a bit clumsy to use, but
that's typical of these systems in any
car. Could be voice activated.
