Not what you'd expect for the price.
By Too Late - It's mine on


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


If I could give it back - I'd
definitely buy the Lexus coupe. This
60k+ car was in the shop 3x in the
first week. Back again for parts that
fell off, locks that don't unlock and
the alignment still pulls. The brakes
squeal-acceptable and expected says
Benz-and don't expect them to last
past 12-15k Mi. When I told the
Service Mgr I owned 2 lexus' before
this, he said, "Thats a great product.
This is no Lexus." That speaks
volumes. I should have respected the
consumer reports ratings that told me
these cars are unreliable & w/poor
customer satisfaction. My fault for
not listening. I'll probably keep it
for a year and dump it for the Lexus,
where I was spoile

Best Features

Body style is beautiful, but does not make up for the poor engineering.
