2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned this car for all of 1
month now. I read the reviews and
everyone has an opinion. For the most
part good, a few not so good perhaps.
I have been a BMW driver for over a
decade and this is my first Mercedes
Benz. While I am used to a younger,
sportier appeal in cars, the CLK 320
has changed my whole view of MB and
the definition of fun, safe, sporty
and elegant. If you have reservations
about this car at all, I'm here to put
your mind at ease. You will not be
disappointed. You will probably drive
this car for a long long time. My
commute has become the fun part of my
day!


Best Features

The little details...the button that puts the rear headrests down for better visibility. The cupholder that's flush with the dash but pops open with a push. The rear air vents for backseat passengers. The fold down seats for hauling lengthy items.


Worst Features

Only three...17" wheels should be standard. Perhaps one more cup holder for your front passenger (strangely enough there are two for the rear passengers) and an easy access change holder for meter money. None of these are deal breakers, can't say it really matters all that much.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Cabriolet (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My CLK is <6 months old and has been in
the shop more than every car I have
ever owned over 20 years combined and I
haven't even had an oil change yet!
The glove box wouldn't close before I
even drove my new car off the lot
requiring multiple days to fix with a
complete dashboard overhaul. Then the
driver door had a rattle that required
a "bolt to be tightened". A month
later the rattle occurred on the
passenger side. Then the seat belt arm
extension stopped working - all
requiring days of service. I gave my
thoughts to JD Power & Associates and
asked if others had these types of
problems - the answer an emphatic yes!


Worst Features

My previous two cars were a 93 Toyota Camry LE ($20K) and a 99 Acura TL ($30K). I believe MB should consider the Toyota or Acura quality school!

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 Cabriolet (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Beautiful looking car. BUT, DO NOT
PURCHASE NAVIGATION SYSTEM!!! My car
has approx. 2,400 miles and has already
been serviced overnight due to
mechanical issues. The electronics
or "toy's" are not all that great.


Best Features

Love the body style of the car. Nice, sporty and classy.


Worst Features

The Neverlost systems in a rental car is 10x's better than the navigation system in my 2004 CLK. The navigation shows NO street names what so ever (only the st. you are on.)Add more cupholders too. The CD player has problems reading and doesnt play(takin in 2 for service.)Trans.is off.
