Excellent Drive ....Terrible Reliability
By catherine nicholas on


2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Cabriolet (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


On performance I give it very high
marks. However, mercedes cuts corners
on quality. This is my second CLK. My
first was plaqued with problems ranging
from engine trouble (random stalling)to
window failure. In fact, I couldn't
sell it because mercedes couldn't not
get the "check engine" light to go
out. I was forced to trade it in. My
second CLK has had one problem after
another ranging from not starting, to
seat controls, to air conditioning..the
list goes on. The wood grain bleeds
into the leather on the doors. Don't
order the hands free phone. 50% of the
time the car doesn't recognize the
phone is plugged in and you are forced
to pull over to reset the engine. Bad
sound quality also

Best Features

It is fun to drive and comfortable.

Worst Features

Mercedes has serious electrical problems that need to be addressed and the phone system should be redesigned and created to allow for upgrades as technology improves. I shouldn't be on a first name basis w/ everyone in the service department. Although my service team is great!
