Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe 430 Avantgarde 2d Tip Auto (2001/Y) - Owner Review

The V* engine really is world class and helps you forgive the pricing. The ride is quite hard on the Avantgarde, but I chose it for performance handling rather than ride quality, but both are good.

Value

3 out of 5

This is a beautiful car, but for the money in equivalents such as Lexus you would have Park Distance Control, Sat Nav and other extras all for the same money or less.

Costs

Again, as above and you really pay through the nose for MBD servicing.

Performance

5 out of 5

Faultless, smooth and solid all the way up to 155mph restricted.

Reliability

1 out of 5

Faultless, but as previous comments by others, relatively small tank for MPG.

A real head turner with real wow factor, but getting dated now.

Comfort

1 out of 5

The electrically adjustable seating on the 430 is standard and the seats were first class.

Good level of standard spec, probably worth a tracker in the UK, but not the IOM.
