I love my CLK 320 cab but it is extremley expensive to repair. It has 55k on it.It is the most sensitive car I have ever owned. If one dash light goes on it goes into the trickel effect. Thats a 100 bucks just to start to fined the code. I going to just say other then a oil change, plan on a spending a min 1,000 to repair anything.Oh and anything to do with the convertable top make that 2,000
I bought this 1999 clk 320 cabriolet with 75,000 miles. Within 3 mos. I had to replace the ac system. Very expensive proposal. I have had it for 4 years - 127,000 miles. Engine runs great. Needs a hydraulic pump for the convertible top. ($3800 est. from mb dealership to replace) needs new rearview mirror (est. of $1100 from mb dealership) handsome car but very expensive to repair adequate pick up and go.
I read about the CLK320 Cabriolet when debuted. It looked great, but was expensive and had little rear visibility. I wrote it off until I saw a red 1999 with 35,000 miles at a used car sale in 2005. I drove it and immediately liked it. It had been through four owners and had been Starmarked and modified with AMG wheels and tires at one point. It was in such good condition that I thought it might have been wrecked and restored, but it was all original. The rear visibility has not been an issue at all.

My two problems have been with oil leaks and the CD player. There were leaks in the valve covers, from the pilot bushing on the transmission, and from the differential. I should soon have them fixed. The CD player and radio, I would like to replace-- I just don't know with what (it has optical wiring).

After owning it 6 years and 70,000 miles, I can't find a better car.
