2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Cabriolet (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This car is abosolutely great in every way!


Favorite Features

I (we) like everything about it. The top is really easy to use and the performance and handling are outstanding.


Suggested Improvements

The command system is a bit complicated and could be more user friendly in my opinion. This is a minor nit at best.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I thought I was in love before with my 2002 CLK 430, but nothing compares to this ride. I was kind of skeptical, only because the 2002 model seemed a bit more sleek from the back, but once yiu ride it, nothing compares to it.


Favorite Features

The seat belt help. And the power of the car. It is most definetly a car that gets a lot of looks.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy. Needs to be worked on.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I immediately had problems (sunroof rattle, rattle/creaking from the dash, poor a/c, squeeking brakes, etc.). The dealership couldn't "duplicate" the problems and denied they existed. My car was in the shop approx 20+ days in nine months. I called the dealership, it's owner (AutoNation) and Mbz Customer Relations. After approx 50 calls (no exaggeration), I finally got Mbz to buy it back under the Calif. Lemon Law. They kept putting me off hoping I would go away. The only reason I got them to buy it back is because I didn't give up - certainly not because anyone cared about doing the right thing. I will never buy a Mercedes again.


Favorite Features

It was fun to drive - great acceleration and power.


Suggested Improvements

The cup holder location is stupid. One bump in the road and it spills your drink on the control panel. Fluid (in my case coffee) gets in between the buttons and it's impossible to clean.
