My CLK is <6 months old and has been in
the shop more than every car I have
ever owned over 20 years combined and I
haven't even had an oil change yet!
The glove box wouldn't close before I
even drove my new car off the lot
requiring multiple days to fix with a
complete dashboard overhaul. Then the
driver door had a rattle that required
a "bolt to be tightened". A month
later the rattle occurred on the
passenger side. Then the seat belt arm
extension stopped working - all
requiring days of service. I gave my
thoughts to JD Power & Associates and
asked if others had these types of
problems - the answer an emphatic yes!
My previous two cars were a 93 Toyota
Camry LE ($20K) and a 99 Acura TL
($30K). I believe MB should consider
the Toyota or Acura quality school!
