I was looking for a used clk320, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on what to look for (Rust, leakage,ect..). I would also like to know what you people think about this car. Thanks.

how much you looking to spend? I would stay away from a 99 CLK320. Nothing wrong with that year, but the newer models look much nicer (no different color molding).

I prefer the old body style compared to the 2003 [;)] The car is on sale for $26K, and I'm not really willing to spend much more. It's got: Bose,CD,heated seats,hl washers,sunroof and it's silver.

Do you think this is a good price? (I think so)

I didn't mean 2003...Look for a 2000 or newer. There is a dark rubber molding around the 99, I personaly don't like it especially on light color cars.

aaaa yes. I just looked at a picture of a 99' and I see what you mean. The 00'-02' have better moldings, and I prefer those stirring wheels also. Thanks for you'r tip.

Look at the door on the outside, about half way down there is molding, I don't know if it's rubber but it looks like it. If you have a silver car, that molding is much darker. I don't know if you can notice it on a darker color car like black.

Look at this site.

I think I see what you mean.

My '99 is very dark blue (I'm not sure what the name of the color is..it is metallic paint), however, I really never noticed the strip on my car. Did they replace it with another material in 2000?

I don't know if they replaced it or just decided to match the color more accurately. The molding is still there just not as noticable.
