2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Torque thrust bushings in the front suspension may crack and leak oil, this causes steering alignment problems and excessive tire wear. Another symptom of a worn bushing is a clunk or thud noted when turning, on hard acceleration, or hard braking.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Going over large bumps in convertible models may cause the roll bar to deploy, rendering the roof inoperative. Special tools are generally required to return the roll bar to its stowed position.

Brakes -- Verified

It is not uncommon to encounter premature failure of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every two years in order to help prevent this problem.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The sway bar end link joints may wear and cause a knocking noise over bumps. Loose or warn links should be replaced to correct this type of noise.
