2001 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
My CL500 was one of the worst driving
experiences I have ever had (previously
owned 2 MB's). I purchased, from a
Mercedes dealer, a 2001 model with
3,000 miles. BIG MISTAKE. There were
major problems with the CD player, the
instrument panel, the windows, the
headlights, the nav system and the
pneumatic doors. I finally gave up
after driving the car 9,000 miles and
taking it to dealers 8 times for
repairs receiving no real assistance or
compensation for my inconvenience from
Park Place Motors, Dallas(one time they
paid for a rent car), or Mercedes-Benz.
Of note: when I traded, Park Place
Mercedes-Benz/Mid-cities, where I had
purchased the car,would not even submit
a bid for the trade.
