What used Mercedes-Benz CLK coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Mercedes-Benz CLK coupe?

These are desirable cars, so resale values are high, but that also means they're fairly safe investments. As a rule, they are fairly well maintained and, as Mercedes dealers are the best place to find them, most should be in good condition.

The car has an intelligent service indicator, so drive it hard and you'll be visiting the garage sooner rather than later. But, however you drive it, running costs are high, especially if you use main dealers for servicing.

You could use an independent specialist to carry out the work, and save some money in the process, but franchised dealer services histories are desirable, so the lack of one could cost you when you come to sell the car on.

The size of your fuel bills varies greatly depending on the specification of your CLK. The 200K returns an average of 32.5mpg, while the V8s offer an average fuel consumption of 24.8mpg.
