Pros: Watching the roof open and close
Cons: Accelerator needs a heavy push
Advice: An awesome second carI ordered my car in 5/02 and received it in 9/02. It's by far the best car I've owned, and handles very well. The engine is very powerful, as are the brakes. The CLK is a very good looking car with the top up, and beautiful with the top down. It turns heads everywhere it goes. The back seat is very small, but can be used if necessary. This car makes me look forward to sunny days and nice weather. It's very solid, and relatively heavy for its size, giving it a very safe overall feeling. ABS,ESP and Brake Assist only add to this feeling.
Pros: Appearance Package
Advice: Buy ItMy wife is loving her 2003 Ice Blue CLK320 with the appearance package and NAVI. It took 8 months to get it. Well worth the wait. The appearance package with the aluminum replacing the wood and the Charcoal Leather makes the interior. The metal pedals are radical too. This car drives fantastic and handles like a true German sports coupe should. No negatives except only 1 cup holder in the front.
Pros: Keyless start
Cons: Phone has been troublesome.
Advice: Don't buy the voice activated phone.The car handles and drives extremly well. The steering lacks some on feed back. The car is very quiet.
Pros: Manual Shift on the Fly
Cons: Gas Mileage
Advice: Get It!!!Pretty Quick at times. Needs more horsepower.
Pros: seat comfort
Cons: gas mileage rating and brake wear
Advice: buy a sedan or coupeMy ML320 has been in the service bay four times for recurring windshield washer reservoir leaks; windows don't close properly; cricket sound under dash in cold weather. I like the way it handles and interior comfort. When my lease expires, I'll try something else.
Pros: small engine plenty of go.
Cons: too many buttons on steering wheel
Advice: don't buy a smaller car until you look at this car.out performed the bmw 325. better ride, better looks, better interior, cost less, and most importantly the dealers were better. bmw would not even quote a price until you were sitting in front of a finance manager after leaving your first born child.
Cons: Noisy car
Advice: Try other ones before you buyGood acceleration. Nice looking car.
