2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Coupe (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


While possessing somewhat heavy
steering this car really is an
excellent performer. The V8 provides
great low-end torque that's always
available on command. The word that
most comes to mind is "solid".
Highway manners are superb even at
near autobahn speeds. The voice-
operated integrated Motorola v60 phone
is a joy to use. The factory
installed AMG-style spoiler kit is
nice, but prone to damage due to the
low front-end. Watch out for those
curbs! And other than an absolutely
deplorable radio unit (horrible
reception) and and trunk-mounted CD
changer (frequent skipping on bumps)
the car is wonderful!

Best Features

Engine torque, performance, cornering, seating (for front passengers), body design (if you like the older W208 style Mercedes bodies), and integrated v60 phone

Worst Features

Heavy steering, tiny gas tank, terrible radio reception, skipping cd changer
