2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK 240 Avantgarde 2.6 from UK and Ireland
Could be great, but falls FAR short
Coolant pipes leaked into the gearbox and practically destroyed it.
Multiple ECU faults, which MB dealers appeared unable to fix.
Seat belt presenters failed, because of cheap wiring.
Airbag light on due to failed occupancy sensors in the front seats.
Motors for A/C failed behind dash. Cheap parts that necessitated the dash being removed to fix.
Irish MB dealers to not appear to employ trained or interested mechanics. Service and knowledge in dealers is appalling.
I loved how this car looked, felt and drove... WHEN it worked properly.
Decent power, smooth ride, svelte pillarless coupe styling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
