Not what you'd expect for the price.
By Too Late - It's mine on

Vehicle

2005 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Cabriolet (5.0L 8cyl 7A)

Review

If I could give it back - I'd definitely buy the Lexus coupe. This 60k+ car was in the shop 3x in the first week. Back again for parts that fell off, locks that don't unlock and the alignment still pulls. The brakes squeal-acceptable and expected says Benz-and don't expect them to last past 12-15k Mi. When I told the Service Mgr I owned 2 lexus' before this, he said, "Thats a great product. This is no Lexus." That speaks volumes. I should have respected the consumer reports ratings that told me these cars are unreliable & w/poor customer satisfaction. My fault for not listening. I'll probably keep it for a year and dump it for the Lexus, where I was spoile

Body style is beautiful, but does not make up for the poor engineering.
