Standard safety equipment for the CLK-Class includes traction control, anti-lock brakes, Mercedes’ Electronic Stability Program, electronic brake force distribution, Brake Assist, and a BabySmart child-seat recognition system. Coupe models have four side-impact airbags and two full-length side curtain-type airbags. Convertibles use new side-impact airbags that are designed for head and thorax protection. The NHTSA has not performed crash safety tests with the 2004 CLK-Class cars. In IIHS testing, the CLK-Class earned the highest rating of ""good"" for rear-crash and head restraint. Even without much test data, the CLK-Class cars should be considered as respectable at protecting occupants due to the impressive list of safety gear.
2004 Mercedes Benz Clk230 — The 2004 CLK320 I own performs without any flaws. It has two settings one for comfort, the other for performance and you can tell the difference between the two. Its a more robust vehicle than the 2003 C230K I had previously. I think its styling is timeless, having generally straight lines devoid of any trendy styling gimmicks. Its a comfortable car to drive with a sporty side that you can use when needed. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone in the market for a couple from an upscale marquee.

2004 Clk 500 - A Great Automobile, Period. — From day 1 I felt this was the car for me. It handles wonderfully in the Colorado Mountains. The 5.0 Liter V8 has plenty of power when you ask for it. Handling is precise and quick. Still looks as good as the new ones. Classic lines. An AMG pkg. would make it perfect if I had the bucks. But for the money spent, I would be hard pressed to find anythingt on the market that satifies as well.
The 2004 CLK was the last Mercedes Benz automobile to use the D2B (Digital Data Bus) media system introduced a decade earlier and CD-ROM based navigation system. The 2005 update included the MOST (Media Oriented Serial Transport) media system used in the rest of the Mercedes Benz line, alongside optional DVD based navigation system and iPod integration. The 2006 included an improved 3.5-liter 6-cylinder engine and added the steering wheel shift paddles from the AMG model to the CLK500.
