2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 Reviews
I love my car but recently started smelling gas around the hood/drivers sdie every mornign when i start my car. The smell goes away after the car warms up. I dont smell it inside though. I am worried and would like to know if anyone has experienced this problem before and what the possible cause and solution could be.
Please be careful buying any mercedes. Quality issues are just too much. Driver side mirror vibrates due to bad design. Wind while driving affects it. Tail light just fell off one day. Everytime i take it to dealer, two days later something quits working and thats mostly radio components. Dealers are crooks making money off you, and making lot of money. things that are standard on other cars are not standard on mercedes, like a bluetooth and will take 2000 dollars to get that installed. I hate mercedes. Will never buy another. i dont have time or money for them to keep fixinf my car.
