Fancy, fast, and reliable

I love this car from its unique style to the performance it’s very fun to drive and comfortable, mine is a 2013 and everyone thinks it’s the latest module Mercedes. Highly recommend it if you want a family sedan but still fun


CLS550 is a beast...but could use better seats

Car is awesome. Huge engine, tons of power off the line and at speed. It also has great lines...really a beautifully engineered car. I drive the car a lot though and I can say that I've never had a car with a more uncomfortable driver's seat. It's too soft and not nearly supportive enough for a car at this price point. They've changed it in later years, so they clearly solved the problem...so my lack of recommendation is only for the 2013. Otherwise, I love the MB CLS550...


Dream car

I wish could drive it everyday nice exterior the diamond white really sparkles in the sun light massage seats are great feature the nice trunk Space


why Mercedes CLS 550 and not BMW M3 orM4?

If you are a Car enthusiast and enjoy driving muscle car that is fast and resonabily reliable then look no further. The styling and agressive lines of MB CLS550 are both breathtaking and practical. I am Enjoying every single moment of my MB and its power on the open roads. Absolute economical in gas consumption giving me an average of between 24-25 MPG on a mix of Freeway and street with my aggressive driving style. You will not regret the decision of buying CLS 550. Best car ever. BMW M is over priced and over rated. My 0-60 is under 4 sec on a stock car.


Check the CarFax Before Purchasing this CLS550!!!

Great car and an excellent deal but I highly recommend consulting with a MB dealership after reviewing the CarFax. The seller was very pushy; seemed to be overly aggressive and eager to sell this car. Often interrupted me when I was speaking and not the type of professionalism you would expect.


Beautiful & Efficient as well!

Now I preface this by saying I work for a US auto dealer, BUT I just fell in love with the looks, power, elegance of the CLS. Now I have seen a review or 2 and they hammer on the fuel economy...who cares?! BUT to clarify, my experience-I drove it on a 350 round trip and I averaged 27.7 mpg at 70.2 mph. Its just an awesome ride-the power/acceleration/handling is very impressive....I'm prone to driving fast so I see some tickets in my future, but that may be a small price for the this vehicle. I got a wonderful price...MSRP of 82.2K and bought it for 70.5 and belonged to an organization that partners with MB and got another 3K off. Now to top it off...I bought this with NEVER having sat in or drove it pryor to the purchase...I just knew it would meet my expectations...it has! Of course my ego plays a part as there are not many of these vehicles around so I get plenty of looks...that is the car gets the looks-not me!


Excellent choice!

Had the car about 3 months now and it's great. Fast sleek, adventurous,fun to drive, I have the 4.6 v8 version which tbh is just what I wanted it drives immaculate responsive, although not too responsive to the extent of overpowering you at every corner, the wife loves it mates love it I was torn between this and the Porsche panamera I'm glad I choose the Merc if your looking for a sexy looking high performance car with practicability as well as performance and high tech spec and interior this is your car!
