Mercedes-Benz CLK350 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.

Engine -- Verified

The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) heater box is susceptible to mildew buildup. This can result in a musty odor from the HVAC system, most noticeable when the system is first turned on.

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.

Engine -- Verified

The crankshaft position sensor may fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance. Communicating these specific symptoms to your technician can save diagnostic time.

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.

Overall it is a great car. My only complaints are with the heating system. The auto setting does not really adjust where the heat/cooling comes out. The older C Class cars did. There are also many problems interfacing an I Pod/I Phone with the entertainment system. The music plays fine, it just does not display on the main entertainment display.
