Top of the line comfort/performance, low quality

by Arh2006 from Sacramento, CA on August 7, 2006

The technology and features of this CL600 are astounding, and the quiet acceleration has to be experienced to be believed. The ride is rock solid and quiet as a tomb, with unexpectedly agile cornering for such a large, heavy coupe. Only complaints: minor defects on some fit and finish items and one major electrical failure that left me stranded

Cheapest supercar to buy most expensive to maintai

by Carlsson ck60 from Bonita on February 4, 2018

Amazing car to drive even today! However expect 8 k a year average to keep it running. Navigation is horrible for as expensive this car is. Good news seicane has a perfect touch screen WiFi, back up and front camera update. For 500 bucks . Remember car cost over 120k and while you can get one for under 10k be prepared to pay 120k like repairs. Beast when running, but oil cooler leaks will set you back 8k, ABC tandem pump 4 k, oil sensing unit pulls oil thru thats 8k, abc shocks 1500 each plus installation. Water cooled alternator 1k with install, ignition coils 1500 each side.you get the picture. Oil Changes 200 but every 12k

The car so far is very reliable.

by Smooth from Chicago on May 27, 2018

The vehicle is very comfortable and reliable. Very unexpectedly fast, and powerful. Also has a very sleek looking exterior. It?s truly the epitome of a luxury sports car.

Love my CL

by Easy from Illinois on February 5, 2013

Comfort, handling, performance, eye-appeal all A+. The interior will blow people away. You have to drive it to realize just how different and special these cars are.

Nothing but problems...

by Cl500 Reviewer from Marlton, NJ on February 28, 2011

TERRIBLE CAR! I thought Mercedes were supposed to be good! NO WAY! I spent $28,000 for a 2002 Mercedes Cl500, I bought it in 2007. Within the first week owning it, there was a problem where the front seats were shaking and vibrating hard. (not supposed to happen) The trunk is automatic- but doesn't open completely! The rear seats have buttons to open the windows. One button for each side, but the left side button opened the right window, and the right side button opened the left window! Thank God I spent $4,000 for a 4-year warranty! I've had about 8 rental cars in all- over 4 years! I did enjoy them though- you get brand new gorgeous Mercedes! Anyway, I bet the total price for all the problems (if I didn't have a warranty) would be close to $20,000. Not kidding. So, do yourself a favor- don't waste your money on this. Only perk- it turns heads when it passes by. FACT: In 2002 (brand new) this Cl500 Mercedes-Benz was selling for $92,000! (WHAT A WASTE!)

NOTHING LIKE A GERMAN BUILT V12

by mroseberry11 from Plain City, OH on October 4, 2017

This automobile is a dream to drive, especially at this price!!! They sold new for over 120,000K and with the V12 you can fill that "BUCKET LIST" car and always be able to say you've owned a V12 and it didn't cost you over a 100,000K.

Great car for the money

by Justinmercedesguy from Neptune beach, fl on August 1, 2017

Great car with awesome interior and exterior styling turns heads and very reliable except for hydraulic suspension system which had to change 2 nitrogen ballasts as the gas membrane dry rots over 15 yrs and blew few lines. Once changed no problems. Also did Ac compressor after 15 yrs. other than that no problems
