Not a fine wine...

2000 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe
Bought the car used with 104K miles for my kid as I wanted her in a mini tank, along with traction and stab control, side airbags, etc. Just my luck, had to fix almost everything - brakes, rear deck leak, amplifiers, blown speakers, rear antenna, ball joints, dashboard digital metrics (outside temp, gear display, etc) shot, intermit wiper, etc. I think it also just sprung a leak somewhere up front on the passenger side, and I think I just lost the driver rear wheel bearings. I've owned late model American and Asian based cars that never experienced as many problems as this little gem? Also - Bose radio sounds like crud, lots of static.
Been a while since owning a rear wheel pusher. Car handles well, has pretty good pick up even with 106K miles on it and a v6, gets OK mileage at around 23 mpg average.
