Top Down, Fast Fun
By Bnatt4321 on


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


This car is great. I decided it was time to have a convertible again and this CLK430 has not disppointed. The performance is incredible (although it does drink the gasoline) and it has been very reliable. The ride is very tight and taking corners at speed is like riding on rails. Two downers about this car: 1st: unless you must have NAV, don't bother as the screen is very small and it's not very user friendly. 2nd: beware of parking lot curbs as they like to eat up your front spoiler. With that said I bought the car with 40K miles on it and now have 55K. It has been a true pleasure to own and great fun. I am very pleased with this Mercedes.

Best Features

The seats are very comfortable, especially when taking long trips on the interstate. The audio system is phenomenal and provides crystal clear sound even at highway speeds.

Worst Features

Navigation system needs improvement and front spoiler needs a re-design as it is too low to the ground.
