2002 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class Coupe CL500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Perfect driving experience. Handles like a charm and the pickup is like a "jet car". Love everything about the look, feel and handling. Everything works. Top quality fit and finish


Favorite Features

Control panel, steering, acceleration, design.


Suggested Improvements

Make navigation screen larger. Make the nav system cover the entire US not just the West on my CD. Make the nav system touch screen. My Acura MDX has all of these NAV features. Come on MBZ!

2002 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class Coupe CL600 2dr Coupe (5.8L 12cyl 5A)


Review

Classic design...just a beautiful machine. I had heard about some MB quality issues in the early 2000's model lines and there are some bugs in the car: engine computer replacement, radiator hose replacement, window wahser resvoir repalcement, a turn signal that just wont work. Bummer on a car that cost $120k new. On the plus side this is a magical machine that you only really begin to understand at 100mph+. The design is clean and classic...the V12 purrs unless you want it to growl, which it is happy to do. This car is all alpha male selection.


Favorite Features

V12, awsome sound system, classic looks


Suggested Improvements

Any leg room in the back seat would be more than there is now!

Review

Replacing passenger door electric window motor has been frustrating. Dealer service cut the leather then they broke every speaker grill (3) at the next three appointments. They replaced damaged wood trim on door and seat function panel. Always delivered car with grease spots everywhere they touched it and really did not care. Finally the center console split in half and needed replacement. Strange vibrations from wheels in the mornings that the dealer blames on low battery charge? The paasenger door is still not right but no body including MB cares.


Favorite Features

Beautiful body...great roof lines


Suggested Improvements

Quality of service...this is not a $100k Chrysler!

Review

After years of lust for the big MB V12 I broke down and replaced my C5 Corvette with an ultra-clean fully optioned (Spt,Dist,Park)30k mi example. The car is heavy which adds to a solid feel all-around, but you wouldn't notice it with power that is immediate and omni-present. I looked at other new/used cars in the class, but none of them could match the looks, price, power, and features. Just ask yourself "where else can I get a V12 $120k car for 1/3 the original price (not Ferrari or Bentley). Mercedes went all out on their flagship model with plenty of wood and leather to match the techno gadets that are loaded with car. The jury is still out on reliability/maintainability.


Favorite Features

Distronic (Laser Cruise Control) - I did not think I would car for this option but it turns out to be my favorite - It feels like the car is practically driving itself.


Suggested Improvements

The Command System isn't as bad as most auto journalist make it out to be - if your up on technology its intuitive enough, but the 2002 Navigation system is old-school by 2007 standards and shows it. Do not expect to be impressed with its functionality or capability.
