My CLK 55
By papabear on
2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK55 AMG 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
The car is an absolute joy to drive. I have had some negative experiences
with the electronics i.e. the passenger window express up/down feature
malfunctions quite frequently. I have experienced a complete shutdown of
the car while sitting at a stop sign. My biggest gripe is that the computer
"forgets" that there is a CD changer mounted in the trunk and I have to pull
over and restart the car in order for the computer to "remember".
The engine, styling and acceleration make up for a lot of the other issues. I
particularly love the voice command which controls all phone and audio
For a car with such high performance the braking system needs a lot of
work!! The braking system on my '92 BMW 325i far exceeds the stopping
power of my '01 CLK 55!! Oh yeah, I almost forgot....fix the electronics.......
