Wifes 2004 CLK500 has 334,000 miles and properly maintained, could take a trip anywhere in the USA and not have any second thoughts.

The 2006 CLK350 just turned over 140,000 miles. I have performed all maintenance myself using MB schedule. No mechanical issues. For the last few years it has been my daily driver. In the summer, except when raining and really hot days, the top rarely goes up. My thoughts are it is good maintenance that keeps most vehicles on the road. I have a 2005 Nissan pickup with about the same miles and have had no mechanical issues with it. I also feel a vehicle holds up better when garaged. The weather is really hard on a vehicle if left out in it all the time.

We’ve had our old girl for nearly 2 years 117k. Nothing done before we had it for 40k.. so oil and belts changed, new callipers, recon gearbox (still surging when shifting), water sealer on roof, rear break light, recent roof problem (rear hinges) new steering wheel springs (horn beeping when driving, great fun), abs light on again...
Slowly driving me mad and proves that buying an old Merc isn’t always a good idea. But we all love it lol..

I would love to know the mileage of your W209 and would highly appreciate if you could please share the same on this thread. Thanks
