Engineers with nothing better to do.
By Doc on


2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK350 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


I have driven many cars in my 72 years This is the least user friendly car I have ever owned. MB has too many engineers who are really playing games with car functions. They have made life complicated for no benefit. Dealing with some of the menus and subs is distracting and takes the drivers eyes away from the road. I can't advise anybody to buy this car and would actively discourage anybody from doing so. MB is not alone Simplicity is what is needed! It seems that this is the way many manufactures are going and it is a mistake One should not have to be an engineer or a computer scientist to understand the car. The operating handbook is poorly laid out. Why should the operation of lights be on 8 pages?

Best Features

Ease of lowering and raising top. Ability to adjust seats. Comfort of seats is excellent. Place for glasses is good.

Worst Features

Simplify operation of various controls. Provide adequate storage space. Revise operation book so it is logical and does not require page flipping. Front defroster should be adjustable. Lower CG, car could be better on fast curves. Gas pedal is poorly angled making it difficult to accelerate smoothly
