What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The Mercedes CLK looks fantastic, has an air of exclusivity and is good to drive

Against Used examples are expensive and not as reliable as you might expect

Verdict A classy but costly coupe, which suffers a worrying amount of niggles and faults

Go for… V6 autos

Avoid… Four cylinder manuals

Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe
  • 1. There are occasional problems with the seats, so check that everything works as it should
  • 2. The build quality is not great, and small items of cabin trim often come loose
  • 3. There's a good selection of engines, but the V6 petrols or the diesels are the most sensible to buy
