Excellent Drive ....Terrible Reliability
By catherine nicholas on
Vehicle2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Cabriolet (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewOn performance I give it very high marks. However, mercedes cuts corners on quality. This is my second CLK. My first was plaqued with problems ranging from engine trouble (random stalling)to window failure. In fact, I couldn't sell it because mercedes couldn't not get the "check engine" light to go out. I was forced to trade it in. My second CLK has had one problem after another ranging from not starting, to seat controls, to air conditioning..the list goes on. The wood grain bleeds into the leather on the doors. Don't order the hands free phone. 50% of the time the car doesn't recognize the phone is plugged in and you are forced to pull over to reset the engine. Bad sound quality also
Best FeaturesIt is fun to drive and comfortable.
Worst FeaturesMercedes has serious electrical problems that need to be addressed and the phone system should be redesigned and created to allow for upgrades as technology improves. I shouldn't be on a first name basis w/ everyone in the service department. Although my service team is great!
