I have worked on several CLKs and I find that they are pricey to maintain. They tend to be a high maintenance vehicle because they are a powerful and sporty luxury car. I would put aside 2000-3000 per year to keep this car really in top shape. To get the thrill of driving these cars costs money over the long term and even the short term. Best of Luck!
