Looking To Buy 2001 Clk 430... Any Help?

I was wondering, If the 2001 Clk 430 has the smart key feature, where you can roll up the windows and sunroof by holding the lock key, and vice versa? I rode in my aunt's clk 500 and i was dazzled by it ever since. What is the first year for that feature? and what are some major problems with 2001 clk's that i should know about, if any?

It does indeed have that feature. A most all the models do.
CLK problems. Consistant ones that I see a lot at work are, seat frames grinding, warping, making horrible noises. Window noises on up/down, in cold weather. Problems with the rollbar (rear headrests on convertables) seperating from the motors, and not going up/down. A/C cooling problem. 13 pin transmission connector socket leaking, very common on cars with the 722.6 transmission. Catalysts breaking apart inside, and creating rattles in the exhaust. Door control modules going out, creating the window drop-down on express closing, also known and "bouncing", and many others that I cannot think of. But on the upside, most of those repairs are easy to do.[:)]

Do not buy one unless you want rust in 5 years,just after the warranty goes away.

CLK windows

My 2001 Clk has the smart key window function, really cool. You can also raise and lower all the windows with the convertible switch, I don't have any rust problems with mine.
