2001 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased this car from Park Place Bedford,TX. I had always wanted a Benz, saw this one and fell in love. This car is in tip top shape in every way. It looks brand new inside and out, and my purchase and service experiences have been the best. This dealership treats you like royalty in every way! (Thanks Brian) I do wish the fuel economy was better, but with power and performance like no other its better than expected. Sound system is top notch, and all the options are user friendly. This care is impressive in every way. Mercedes was way ahead of its time when they built this dream machine!


Favorite Features

Every feature on this car is not only user friendly, but over the top in functionality. Love the sound system, heated/cooled seats, powerful engine with impressive performance ability, and classy head turning style.


Suggested Improvements

Could use easier access to power seat functions such as massage and lumbar options. Also, better placement of the CD changer. (All suggested improvements have been changed with newer models)

2001 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 2dr Coupe (5.8L 12cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this car in 2003 and kept it 5 years. It was $118 new, I paid $66k, I sold it in late 2008 for $19,500. Is that a clue ? Great looking , great driving and the absolute worst reliability. Mostly electronics, although the trunk brake light popped off when my wife closed the lid gently. the V-12 side emblem broke it's plastic self off twice while I gently washed it. The car developed oil leaks, my " Nice People, Nice cars dealer " quoted $9,200 for that. Suspensions tend to collapse also I was told. When we sold it it only had 42k miles on the clock. Oh, We also replaced a computer fuel feed unit, $1,400. You'll fall in love but be ready for an expensive divorce !!!


Favorite Features

Looks, Driving


Suggested Improvements

Get some Japanese car company to design and build your electronics. How about a 7yr/100k warranty ?

Review

I have my car since new. It has been a nice experience and I have decided to keep it, instead of trading it in for the new 500. I like the styling of my car much better. It is dark blue with light grey interior. I have not had any trouble with it. The only thing now that I miss, is the right connection to my IPOD which I have to do with the FM transmitter, which is not stylish and unreliable. My car is pretty, fast and chic and I would not change it. The only things I have done are the regular mantainence programm and not at the MB dealership, but with a specialist for european cars, cheaper and better.


Favorite Features

Design ( interior and exterior). Engine ( smooth and responsive)


Suggested Improvements

More competitive price foolproof radio

Review

This CL 600 is the most recent mercedes I have acquired. Traded in an E55 for it. They are very different cars, but both are extremely quick. The CL 600 truely lives up to the designation of the flagship of the Mercedes line up. The finish and workmanship are on par with any S class sedan.


Favorite Features

Extreme stability on the road, you feel that you own the road.

15 visits for repair, most on computer issues. 1 suspension failure. If the car was reliable, it would be my favorite car of all types I have owned. There appears to be no end to the computer issues with this car.


Favorite Features

Wonderful sound system; quiet; fast; smooth


Suggested Improvements

Quality control
