2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class
There are 1 user reviews for the CLK550 Coupe trim shown below
- nice classic style, quick and agile
- too much body role, very outdated technolgy and style. Holds value horribly,
Purchased As New
Overall a good car that is quick and agile, but has too much body roll and is dated for 2007/09. Expect to lose 50% of value of the car within one year. Purchased as a first car for a male teenager, maybe it is an old woman's car? Brakes (pads) on all mercedes tend to whistle no matter how slowly you drive the car, this is an annoyance and major issue that should be rectified. Mercedes should try brembros which are much better; as standard. Cabin quietness also deteriorates quickly with age. Seats feel cheap and clunky and are a tad uncomfortable. Extremely pricy car, all options should be standard like lexus for the outrageous price you pay. Purchased new in 2007 for 64k plus about 2k for lighted doorsills and tax. Lighted doorsills are a must have! I mean it! but by 2008, my car worth about 30 in a trade in. Great car if you buy used, paddle shifters are fun but car is sometimes indecisive, expresses lag too often, and downshifts are too rough. Audio quality, build materials, interior quality, and body integrity could be better. Think of the hayday of mercedes pre-1990's. It is like comparing a mercedes to an acura with recognition to price! great car to buy used, well worth every penny of the 30k you could spend. Convertible softtops on the CLK and others can become dirty, smelly, and moldy, if you dont have to time to devote the utmost care to them constantly, so watch out. but, has nice styling. Steering wheel on coupe is larger and is too big.
Great 2002 breakthrough car in its hayday, but will the new E coupe be enough to channel BMW, Audi, and Lexus? Performance is still not up to par with other models no matter how much the new interiors surpass them. Makes you wonder for the price since deals are non-existent on the new high-demand E coupe. In essence, get the while they are hot!
