2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG 5.4 V8 from North America
An elegant monster waiting to pounce
The only problem I have had with the car is the throttle sensor went bad. When the sensor goes bad, the gas pedal refuses to respond. Once that happens, the car will not accelerate. If the sensor is going out, the throttle response will be low.
As an AMG, the car is a torque monster.
Very stylish exterior, yet discrete.
The interior is that of an old Mercedes; a bit outdated, but nonetheless, looks great.
Having the extra 3 grand seat option, the car looks good with it, as does it feel comfortable.
Handling is exceptional, though with a V8 upfront, it is nose heavy.
Brakes are fantastic. Over constant hard braking, the wear is very limited.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
