2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Coupe CLK350 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

This car is not designed and manufactured to the high standards of my prior MBs (2008 CLK350, C350 Sta Wgn 2004).
The roof control switch does not allow opening in the vent position with the sun shade close (as my Volvo does).
The rear bumper does not have a protective top strip (as the ML series does).
With approx 2700 miles, the car has rattles emanating from the cabin
Although mounting points are presenting the inner roof liner a divider is not available (as with the ML series).
The cup holder sub assembly is cheaply made out of plastic.
A cover is not available for the rear bench seat to protect the leather from dog wear and tear.
Positive points are acceleration, gas mileage, and cabin sound proofing.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Coupe CLK550 2dr Coupe (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Review

This car is fun. Great performance. The power is there when you need it.The handling is great.The braking is great.Above all you feel safe in this car.I have no complaints about quality.It's all built in.I'm holding on to this one.It's the first of my future collection.


Best Features

Handling,sound system,safety and it does turn heads.


Worst Features

Sometimes seat belt retraction fouls up. I cracked my speaker cover in the door because I closed the door and the buckle wedged between the seat and door. I don't know what can be done there but it needs attention.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Coupe CLK350 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Great car, sound system is great, great acceleration. I'm glad the Premium package I for 2009 has bluetooth since I live in CA. Great improvement.


Best Features

Cupholders are better than in the BMW 328I, full seat pockets not netting, substantial seatbelt arms, memory seats for passenger, smooth ride, great leather quality, great styling, more passenger AC options.


Worst Features

Touchscreen navigation system, ipod connector in the center console, better cornering, song name and artist on display, song info for ipod on display, tighter braking, control for moving front seats backwards/forwards next to seat lever on top.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class Coupe CLK550 2dr Coupe (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Just a great car! Performance is amazing, handling is excellent without sacrificing too much ride quality, and the brakes are phenomenal. I bought the car 4 months ago and am averaging 18mpg, pretty good for 5.5l V8. Bizarrely this is better mileage than I got from my 2005 C320. My only complaint is that sometimes the transmission gets confused, especially if flooring the throttle at around 20-25mph. There is a noticeable lag before things start happening. Also watch it in the rain, it will spin the rear tyres at 70mph under full acceleration.


Best Features

Performance & great looks.


Worst Features

Transmission programming. On-board computer needs update.

Review

Having owned several performance Mercedes over the yrs including the SL series, the CLK 550 is proving to be the best road machine I have ever driven. Mechanics wedded to aesthetics.


Best Features

Responsiveness, looks, and fun


Worst Features

Lock on glove box. There is no secure place in the cabin!
