Private owner selling my 1998 CLK 320 with 182K Miles

This CLK is in excellent condition. The interior is in great condition, with no rips or tears just average wear (see pictures).  All electronics work, power windows, power seats, and power locks all work perfectly.  The sunroof and rear window shade works fine.  However, the sunroof headliner cover is stuck in the back position but it does not affect the sunroof.  There is window tint on the back window, and a sunstrip on the windshield.  Brand new windshield wiper, windshield has a small crack down by where the wiper rests.  However it seals against air and water and doesn’t affect the vision of the driver.

As a Mercedes this is an extremely comfortable car to drive, plenty of room and very accommodating adjustable seats.  A very smooth ride around town, or on the freeway it has no vibrations or shakes.  A/C blows cold and the heat blows hot.  However, sometimes the center console vent doesn’t open but the blower works fine in all the other vents.  The side vents and the windshield/rear window defrosters still blow fine. I just want to be thorough in the description to insure no surprises or disappointments.

The exterior of the vehicle is in great shape with no body damage.  The paint job is in excellent condition, may have been re-sprayed recently.  No rust, dents, scratches, one small door ding close to the rear fender hardly noticeable does not even show in the pictures.  This is a fantastic looking car with a nice body style.  Rims and tires are in excellent condition, tires are at about 75% wear and in great shape.

This CLK runs and drives extremely well, the transmission shifts incredibly smooth, and the steering is tight. The engine is in perfect running condition with no mechanical issues. There is a check engine light on.  It indicates that there is an exhaust leak but the exhaust has been removed and re-secured and does not have a leak. Tried to reset the check engine light but it will not go off. It and it DOES NOT affect the performance, gas mileage or the way it drives.  This is a very reliable car and would make an excellent daily driver.

This car has a fresh synthetic oil change (oil/transmission) and a new valve cover gasket.  Transmission was serviced with new filter and synthetic fluid.

France formally moves to ban Mercedes vehicles using contested refrigerant

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 18:00:00 EST

That didn't take long. Shortly after a French administrative court gave the French government a ten-day window to reconsider its ban on registrations of Mercedes-Benz A-, B- and CLA-Class cars using the prohibited R134a refrigerant, the government cited an EU directive to formalize banning the sale of the cars. The country's environmental ministry said that registrations "will remain forbidden in France as long as the company does not to conform to European regulations," meaning so long as they do not use the approved R1234yf refrigerant.
Daimler had won the administrative court decision by challenging France's application of a "safeguard" provision in which the EU allows a country to block sales of cars that would "seriously harm the environment." In spite of Daimler's victory, France has cited that very provision as basis for the continuation of the ban.
Daimler got permission from Germany's KBA federal motor authority to keep selling cars with the coolant banned by EU politicians, and is using that national permission as the right to sell the cars throughout Europe. Meanwhile, above that battle, German politicians are asking the EU to let Mercedes sell the cars in France while the KBA does more testing, at the same time as the EU is threatening Germany with repercussions if it doesn't bring the KBA and Daimler into line.

Mercedes testing C-Class plug-in hybrid modes in Germany

Wed, 07 May 2014 16:02:00 EST

Testing appears to be underway for what would be the first Mercedes-Benz C-Class with a hybrid powertrain. We can see a pair of the prototypes undergoing testing in Germany, with one, a C-Class Wagon, still heavily clad in camouflage and featuring a more noticeable outlet on the passenger side of its rear bumper.
There's also a more production-looking sedan, which features a not-so-discreet flap over its rear-bumper outlet. It's difficult to speculate on power outputs for this fuel-sipping C-Class, although our spies seem to think that this car will feature some combination of a four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor, although just which four is unclear (note, we wouldn't mind if MB fit its 2.0-liter turbo with some batteries and motors). Regardless, the four-pot/electric motor seems like a pretty reasonable combo, although it probably means that Mercedes won't be challenging the six-cylinder-powered system of the BMW ActiveHybrid3 any time soon.
When the plug-in C-Class arrives later this year as a 2015 model, it will likely offer a full range of driving modes, including both gas or electric, only, as well as a more traditional hybrid mode.

VW joins Daimler's protest of new A/C refrigerant as EU deadline for compliance passes

Sun, 06 Jan 2013 09:00:00 EST

The case of Dupont and Honeywell's refrigerant R-1234yf is doing the exact opposite of keeping things cool. The two chemical companies have spent years and hundreds of millions of dollars developing R-1234yf to replace R-134a, the new refrigerant shown to be 99.7-percent kinder to the environment than the one it is meant to succeed. Part of that development has been years of testing by governments, outside safety agencies and automakers to approve the chemical for use in cars. It passed the protocols necessary for the European Union to declare that new and significantly revised cars from 2013 onward needed to use R-1234yf, and mandated that every car as of 2017 must use it.
Enter Daimler AG. The automaker created a head-on collision test with a B-Class at their Sindelfingen test track that would lead to the pressurized refrigerant being sprayed on the engine. The result in 20 out of 20 test was that the refrigerant burst into flames as soon as it hit the hot engine, while Daimler says that R-134a does not catch fire in the same test. Another unexpected result of the R-1234yf test was the release of hydrogen flouride, a chemical far more deadly to humans than hydrogen cyanide, emitted in such amounts that it that turned the windshield white as it began to eat into the glass.
Said a Daimler engineer in a Reuters piece, "It was scarcely believable. The most complicated lab tests conducted using the most sensitive measuring instruments around found nothing and all we do is drive a car around a couple of times, open a tiny hole in the refrigerant line and the next thing you know the car is on fire." So Daimler said it wouldn't use the refrigerant, and it recalled the cars it had already shipped with R-1234yf.
