2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK320 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Review

My new MB is a beauty both inside and out but the balky shifting of the auto trans has spoiled my enjoyment. This is especially true going up and down hills. It's like it just doesn't want to shift. There is no such thing as coasting down hill to improve mileage as it just slows down unless you give it some gas. The mileage is another issue (11 City and 20 Highway).

Best Features

Seats are very supportive for my bad back. Controls are easy to reach and well illuminated.

Worst Features

Shifting could be smoother. The headrests block rear vision. Add another cup holder closer to the driver. Simplify the console storage space to make more of it. Getting rid of the cigarette lighter and the double decker bin might help this.
