Franchise

New

What price did you pay?
£37,000

October 2006

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes I shopped around on the internet and found the best possible deal, I paid less than list price and also opted for Metallic paint, leather interior and 6 CD autochanger, because it was the sport model it already had the AMG trim.

I always wanted a CLK ever since the 1st one came out, after the new shape came in I wanted one even more

What was the dealer like?
Decent, bog standard Merc dealer, what you would expect.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Excellent, this is a very fast car, with unbelievable torque and power, in the 40-80 range it is right up there so overtaking is a breeze. On long motorway drives, it eats up the miles. I test drove the petrol 3 litre initially, the salesman said try the diesel its faster and better, he wasn't wrong!

What's it like to park?
-

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Other than on the first day there was coolant pouring out, after it was taken to the dealer it was identified that a seal had been put in the wrong way round during manufacture, no biggie. Other than that 42,000 trouble free miles and counting.

What's most practical about your car?
It has a large boot which is handy for the golf clubs

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The tiptronic paddle change box can be fun at times
