Review of the 2001 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

  • Those who liked last year's car but wished for even more power and status can rejoice in the AMG-tweaked CL55 and the V12-powered CL600.

  • Pros

    High-tech features, classic styling, comfortable long-distance cruiser for two.

  • Cons

    Complex navigation/audio system, cramped rear seat, pricey.

Web-based services, such as e-mail and stock quotes, will also be on board for the 2001 model year.

Vehicle: 2000 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

I bought this car sight unseen and it is everything I had imagined. It rides like a dream and is really fun to drive. It does feel a little light compared to my XJR. It is truly a dream come true!!!

Great car, but...

Vehicle: 2000 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

I've enjoyed this car for its handling and styling, but have experienced too many little problems, including a broken cup holder, and a "check engine" light that comes on for things the dealer says are minor, involving the evaporative system, but still take time to deal with and detract from the pleasure of ownership. MB's roadside service is great, and they will give you directions when you're in the unknown parts of the country.
