2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I immediately had problems (sunroof
rattle, rattle/creaking from the dash,
poor a/c, squeeking brakes, etc.).
The dealership couldn't "duplicate"
the problems and denied they existed.
My car was in the shop approx 20+ days
in nine months. I called the
dealership, it's owner (AutoNation)
and Mbz Customer Relations. After
approx 50 calls (no exaggeration), I
finally got Mbz to buy it back under
the Calif. Lemon Law. They kept
putting me off hoping I would go away.
The only reason I got them to buy it
back is because I didn't give up -
certainly not because anyone cared
about doing the right thing. I will
never buy a Mercedes again.


Best Features

It was fun to drive - great acceleration and power.


Worst Features

The cup holder location is stupid. One bump in the road and it spills your drink on the control panel. Fluid (in my case coffee) gets in between the buttons and it's impossible to clean.

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


Review

What an elegant yet sporty vehicle! It
drives like a dream and is such a head-
turner. I think the appearance package
is a must as is the burl walnut
steering wheel. The wheel coordinates
nicely with the walnut interior.
It's a fantastic lovely convertible;
much nicer than all of the others out
there!! I rarely drive anywhere
without someone commenting on it's
loveliness!


Best Features

It's gorgeous appearance, the way the appearance package special wheels look on the black exterior with the charcoal interior. Walnut accents and walnut wheel add to the elegant and sporty look...Well worth the extra money!


Worst Features

cup holders! The one flaw, is it only has one cup holder.

meets all our needs, fast, space and
comfy.
