Bought this car 6 months ago as a daily hack. It's quick, economical, very comfortable, quiet and handles well. Above all it's been totally reliable. My wife loves it. The rear seats fold so its load capacity is almost equal to a van. On the road it feels planted and safe, floor it and it can go very well, it's no out and out sports car but the neither is it in any way harsh or challenging. It's still used as a daily hack, but we've decided its a keeper. So it's being looked after. These... (read more)

I've owned this car now, 230k sport,for nine years, it's never let me down, EVER, starts every time even during the coldest days & it wasn't garaged. It's quick, stylish, reliable and solid. it's now up for sale, we've just bought a four door mercedes (as circumstances have changed within our family) but i will miss the old car terribly, the new car's great, it's newer, bigger engine, better on fuel but it's NOT the CLK. There was nothing about it that I didn't like. (read more)

I've just bought the CLK. We are Mercedes-people and wanted a convertible with some space, some power, good looks and a star on it's hood. we found this lovely little, big topless Benz and fell in love. In our two days and 500 km the stereo died and the BAS/ASR-light is warning us about something all the time, but it's a good everyday convertible that's looking amazing and is fun to drive. Thumbs up, MB!! (read more)

Although the Mercedes Benz CLK 230 is generally good mechanically. The number of niggling faults are expensive and should not occur on a so-called quality car. I think Mercedes deserted their quality controls in the late 90's-early 00's and I would not recommend them. My advice is to go for a BMW/Audi if you are buying a second hand German built car from that era. (read more)

I have had a Mercedes CLK 230K Cabriolet since 2001, and it will be a wrench to see it go. Supremely comfortable, plenty fast enough, a joy on any road. The only thing that has gone wrong with it in 6 years is a mildly irritating rattle from the heat baffle on the exhaust. Apart from that I find it hard to find fault. (read more)

The Mercedes Benz CLK 230 Kompressor is a great looking car, as long as its silver, face lift model with body kit and AMG alloys. I have owned many types of cars and I can without a doubt say that this one impresses me greatly. It's an absolute pleasure to drive. (read more)

I will be very sad to lose my Mercedes Benz CLK 230 Kompressor but expanding family means that I need a four door. Very comfortable and always seems to attract good comments from my clients, the car definitely has presence. Performance is more than adequate with good top speed acceleration, top speed and comfortable high speed cruising. The car has held its value well. (read more)

I have had a Mercedes CLK 230 Kompressor convertible for nearly 4 years. Already the exhaust has a hole in it. The rubber border of the back window on the passenger side has disintegrated to bits, and is unable to act as a bumper between the driver's window and the back one.
The front cup-holders were designed by a Moron. Stereo sound quality is rubbish. (read more)

The Mercedes CLK 230 Kompressor is a state of art. It's not too big but it has enough place for four people inside with their package. Engine is great and powerful. There is enought power to speed up even on 180 km/h. Mercedes did a great job with interior and exterior. Car is nice for an eye from inside and outside. I don't think there is enough space for all the good things about the car. (read more)

A good combination for business/sports use. A very powerful engine, but can be a bit noisy at times. A very low-slung car with beautiful alloys. Lots of mod-cons like electric seats. A beautiful automatic car. (read more)

The standard spec CLK230 Kompressor (Elegance) feels great to cruise around in but if you push it hard round corners it wont give you the sports car handling you might expect. The car is more for image, refinement and ride quality than high speed cornering.
Depends what you want really.
A bit expensive once youve added the essential extras. (read more)
