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


This car should not be marketed as a
luxury car. It sets expectations too
high. It's poorly engineered,
constructed & the reliability is
appropriately bad. I've had this car
in the shop 6 times in 3 months!! I've
also had a Lexus. Spoiled, I know what
luxury is. Mercedez has ruined its
reputation as far as I'm concerned. BE
WARNED! You will not be pleased with
this car unless you enjoy sitting in
an auto shop.

Worst Features

Test these cars before you sell them. It's not the custmers responsibility to do the quality control and waste time waiting for repairs. PS, loaners are not a given, but a courtesy at some dealers and only in certain circumstances.
