Owned this car for 5yrs and it still looks good and drives great, no oil leaks and no major problem. In 5 yrs to date: one battery,one brake job, two sets of tires and oil changes. Hard to beat this car overall, it has it all power,style and reliability. I would recommend this vehicle to a friend. Previous car BMW.

Best Mercedes I ever owned

by from Cape Cod Mass on February 25, 2010

I have owned 7 Mercedes over the years, including 450SL, 380SL, 240D, 280S, etc. Most were admission to the 'Mercedes Repair Club' (although I loved every one) This vehicle was purchased with 93K mile...
I have owned 7 Mercedes over the years, including 450SL, 380SL, 240D, 280S, etc. Most were admission to the 'Mercedes Repair Club' (although I loved every one) This vehicle was purchased with 93K miles from original owner. It now has 155K miles, all trouble free. Routine maintenance, a minor issue with top ($300 at dealer), some pesky electric issues with interior, and now some rust from NE winters, but all in all a great car. Plus 29 MPG!

POWER HOUSE !!!!!! CLK430

What can be said, this thing is powerful. Mercedes did a wonderful job at tuning this car for performance needs. This engine has the feel of a Chevy small-block and it is smooth is its operation. 0-60 will take only 6.8 seconds or less. Shifts are quick and faultless. Handiling is great and the steering wheel lets you know whats going on, and it lets you know that you have alot of steel to turn. Its kinda heavy. No tilting steering colum though !! This is a 2+2 , so dont expect alot of room. Front seats are very supportive and offera wide range of adjustability. Controls are legibly marked and are easy to manage. However, these cars are expensive for the avereage person, so beware of repair costs w, should you inwuire about purchasing one.

CLK 55 AMG; Absolutely amazing

I recently purchased this car. It came fully loaded with everything Mercedes offered that vear. Navigation, voice command, even a aux. input for an MP3 device. The first thing you will notice is how blindly fast this car is. All Mercedes seam to have a sweet spot @ around 3500-5000 RPM in 3rd gear. This car will melt your face in that range. When it hits... hold on you won't believe it. The car only has a few down sides. Since it an AMG the suspension is very stiff. It does take some time to get used to, but with performance like this you need it. There were also several electrical problems like seat motors, A/C system, etc. Don't forget, MB parts can be expensive and when yours says AMG add even more to the price. If you get the chance drive one, if you get a second chance buy it. That's if you can pry the car out the owners cold dead hands.

The 2001 CLK55 AMG (W208) is a very special car. Driving it today I get nothing but looks and thumbs up as it still holds its ascetic value. The car has a naturally aspirated 5.4L V8 That was hand built in the AMG factory located in Germany. It can produce 0-60 in less than 5 seconds and nothing beats the 20+ mpg (when driven respectively). The interior of the car seems almost factory new and all electronic features function normally. The ride is very sporty yet still comfortable. Practicality is not the cars main point as it only has 3 passenger seats and limited leg/ head room in the back. The engine is the cars most prominent feature and is notorious for being extremely reliable when maintained properly. I myself have never seen another CLK55 in my area so it's nice to know that the car stands out from all the BMW's and Audi's.The CLK55 is an everyday drive that competes directly with the e36 or e46 bmw m3. The CLK55 blows the m3 out of the water when it comes to ride quality and brute performance for a lot less of the cost.

The car looks great. It is a pleasure to drive this car. I have owned this car for 7 years. Every time I get to drive it, its performance amazes me. The CLK 430 has 8 cylinders but it is still excellent on gas. This model's styling is great.
