2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Having owned a CLK 430 Coupe (V8,
275hp) for 3 years, I thought nothing
could rival its quality, performance,
safety, reliability, and design. But,
Mercedes has exceeded all expectations
again in the redesigned CLK 500 Coupe.
Quality remains the same, the options
are amazing. 8 airbags and other safety
features are incredible. Please note
that MB has super heavy duty bumpers--
the bumper cover is what you see
damaged in testing. The car is
incredible--pride of ownership and a
joy to own. Mercedes treats customers
with respect, quality treatment, and
quick fix, if necessary, regardless of
length of ownership.

Best Features

Parktronic mirror, distronic cruise control, new placement of cd changer, electronic steering wheel placement, seats and steering wheel changing position for ease of movement into and out of vehicle, safety, lines, performance.

Worst Features

Single cupholder in front in an awkward position for the driver--needs to be repositioned.
