Review: Mercedes-Benz CLC Coupe (2008 – 2010)


Bolder looking replacement for C-Class Coupe, wide range of engines, neat interior.

Really just a facelift. Other premium hatchbacks such as the BMW 1 Series are better to drive, was only around for less than two years.

Is it smart to get warranty cover on a used car?

I own a 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLC with 23,500 mile on the clock. It has full service history (mainly dealer servicing). I'm thinking about taking out warranty cover. Could you advise on how much this might cost?
I don't think warranty cover makes great sense at this sort of age. The warranty insurer takes a calculated risk, so the premium might be quite high or the actual extent of cover might be quite low with a lot of exclusions. Check with MotorEasy and WarrantyWise.
