1998 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL500 2dr Coupe

Review

The looks never get old. These are well put together, drive like a dream and are huge, particularly on the inside. Plenty of headroom all around for total comfort. With some tweaks they can be made to like the corners, though they are not race toys by any means. Tear and wear repairs are astronomical so please do the car a favor and do not buy it if you cannot afford to keep it up proper. If you value style and comfort along with refinement, this is it. They no longer make them like that. These cars do have personality and you can read them after a while.

Favorite Features

Space, refinement, looks, double paned windows, lack of plastic on the inside, all buttons backlit, adaptive steering and suspension glues car on curves, light steering. it still smells like it came out of the factory. air tight, lack of noise.

Suggested Improvements

Mirrors are small for the car and take some getting used to, heavy cars like to wear out parts. faulty heater cores never corrected by MB over 9 years! could have updated some items over the years are things evolved, like the st wheel, radio etc. a little stuck in 1992 even for MY99 basically.
