My well maintained, garage kept, 2006 CLK350 convertible has rust spots on the bottom of both doors. Dealer quote to replace the doors is about $6000.00-$6500.00. Car value is supposedly about $11,000.
I really want to keep this car as I love the cadet blue color and otherwise it is in great shape.
1. Is the cost to replace the doors appropriate? Would shopping different MB dealers yield more competitive pricing ?
2. Is it worth it? While I love the car maybe it is time to let go. If it was black silver or white I would let it go. But the cadet blue is unique and clearly the current limited choices in car colors now has parking lots full of black, silver or white cars. Not a desirable choice for me.
3. If I do pay for new doors, am I just headed into a cash eating money pit?
The car is almost 10 years old and has 78,000 miles on it.
*I do keep my cars for about 10 years. Maybe the rust occurs on many MB's but after when most folks turn their in??? But I really liked this car and thought I could keep it as an extra car for 10+ more years.
4. Should I even consider another mercedes benz (currently looking at the E400 series and an E350 2 dr 4 matic)? My research on the MB rust problem seems to point to a faulty design with the door weep holes and the rubber gasket which holds water .
The local dealer sales manager and the pre owned manager both looked at my CLK350 and said they were very surprised by the rust on my car, given the excellent condition otherwise. Since I am out of warranty they recommended that I write MB for possible assistance. (not holding my breath)

Thanks for the advice.
