2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK 500 8 cylinder from North America
I'm the new owner of this car for almost a year, and put around 15,000 miles. All these time I never had any problem and enjoyed every mile I drove. Recently I had two similar incidents, which bothers me. I drove my CLK 500, 2003 for about 60 miles and stopped at the coffee shop to get coffee. Few minutes later I came and started the car it would not start. After work, 8-9 hours later I went back and started the car no problem it started. Happened twice. Now I'm afraid to stop the car in middle of a journey. Did anyone experience this?
Great Car. I enjoyed very much.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Yes, I have the same car, the same year, same amount of miles. It did that to me a couple times. Then, I was driving on the freeway and it wouldn't up shift. When I brought it in, my transmission was blown and needed to be replaced :- (I have had a rental car for the past 3 weeks and am still waiting for this to be resolved, because there is no way I will pay $5000 for a new transmission after only 15000 miles.
