Don't Do It !!!
By Ian Bourne on
Vehicle2001 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 2dr Coupe (5.8L 12cyl 5A)
ReviewI 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 !!!
Best FeaturesLooks, Driving
Worst FeaturesGet some Japanese car company to design and build your electronics. How about a 7yr/100k warranty ?
