Beautiful but Balky

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


My new MB is a beauty both inside and
out but the balky shifting of the auto
trans has spoiled my enjoyment. This is
especially true going up and down hills.
It's like it just doesn't want to shift.
There is no such thing as coasting down

Best Features

Seats are very supportive for my bad back. Controls are easy to reach and well illuminated.

Worst Features
