Everything I hoped for & more!!!

by from Las Vegas on March 12, 2010

I've owned my CLS500 for over 2 years now and I still love it just as much as the day I bought it. I owned 3 BMW's and now my 2nd Benz and I'll never go back to BMW. This is just such a great car!!!

Mercedes Hands Down The Best!!!

The very time I saw the CLS500 I knew that this was going to be my next investment in a vehicle. Before purchasing it I did my research on the Pros & Cons. This vehicle has lived up to ALL its expectations & more. After reading all the reviews I realize all vehicles have maintenance issues. There's not a vehicle on the planet that can escape it. I purchased a black 2006 CLS500 with AMG package & I have never been more pleased than I am now. The performance,gas mileages & chic interior is 2nd to none. It holds its own without saying one word. I've driven it several from Memphis TN to various places in Florida without missing a beat. I truly love this vehicles & wouldn't trade it for any other vehicle in the world( maybe a Lamborghini). The Mercedes-Benz CLS500 ROCKS!!!

This is a rocket ship but my average mpg is 12. I have had it in for service five time in the last five months total of 8600 dollars. My cambers are off so the last two sets of rear tires lasted less than five thousand miles with trction control always on. My alternator blew. My supercharger heat sensor needed replacing. My fluid for the dynamic seats is broken over 2000 dollars to fix. My fog light glass broke and you need the entire replacement piece. My window spider gear thingy broke. ( no i am not mechanical) Oh yes and lastly my rims are so soft I have had all of them straigntened twice but they are good only for a week or two so my car shakes horribly and I have not hit anything. Cost of four new rims $12800 yes that is 12800 dollars. But I still love the car.

I sold my 2005 BMW 750L for this car and this Mercedes hands down is a far better handling, most comfortable in its class. I don't have any regrets on my CLS 500. Along with the AMG Sport package, it makes this vehicle look so much sportier, and classy at the same time.

I bought a 2006 Mercedes CLS 500 with an AMG Sport package on it and some other options. There is no other car in my town, Conway, like it. It has exceptional power, handling, and style. The manual is very thick...and because the car has so many options on it...it is a bit difficult to set things up. Overall, however, I am very pleased with my purchase.

Outstanding body style. A true head turner. Inerior are similarly stunning at first glance. I owned the vehicle for six months, but the intrinsic flaws and mechanical issues were more than I wanted to accept. Significant brake noise with this vehicle (a metallic whistling when pressing the brakes) continued even after brakes were replaced. As others have stated, the ride was unexpectedly soft and did not have the level of performance expected from this model. The transmission was ackward and tended to jerk when accelerating from a stop. Sight lines were limited especially when looking toward the front passenger side. The Dealer was indifferent to these issues and explained them away as normal for this car. The car spent over five weeks in service over my the course of my six months of ownership. Bottom line, this is too much money to spend only to be disappointed. This was my third and my last Mercedes.

I will never drive anything else... this car is perfect for comfort AND sportive drivers. No matter how you hit the curve, it never squeaks, you sit in leather and steel and not in plastic in fiberglass... and up the hill we go... 0-60 in 4 seconds.... or was it 3 ?
