2004 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

First of all the car is nice inside out. Mechanically i expect better from German manufacturers. Why cant they build a car with German quality and Japan reliability? Anything goes wrong with this car minimum $500 to fix.

2004 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL55 AMG 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

do usual in depth checks. buy a vehicle that was local and was a cpo. mine has 80k and checked out fine. i only drive it on weekends. my mechanic said this will be fine. if driving the usual 15k/yr, just be ready for the usual expensive repairs. i had lexus sc430. benz has more of that 1 piece porsche feel to it vs lexus and more fun to drive. also liked the classic long nose look like old jag xk and sc400. lots of stuff you don't need but work with the manuel and all techno stuff gets easier to use. of course more stuff means more possible problems. buying used is great way to beat the big depreciation. the more i play with it, the more i like it. no mpg but don't care. didn't buy it for mpg


Favorite Features

v8 growl and power. handling and ease of driving. visibility,comfort,all the fun gadgits, model design and look, can't beat the seats. voice command.


Suggested Improvements

usual stuff found in german cars..tons of little plastic stuff, cup holders don't hold more than a dixie cup safely and holders are fragile. just handle with care. body paint is ok, but porsche, lexus etc are better quality and finish/depth.

Review

After owning two Porsches and 3 Mercedes, this is the best handling and most powerful car I have ever owned. I plan to keep this car forever. I just got this car for $38K with 74,000 miles on it. It looks and drives like it was brand new. The original owner traded it in on the latest version. It get attention from people that know what it is, but is fairly stealthly for such a powerful car.


Favorite Features

Incredible power with almost 500hp. Very quiet and solid feel. Can go around a corner at high speed like it was on rails.


Suggested Improvements

Still learning the voice comand part.

Review

This is a great car! picked it up last week from FL and drove it up about 1,200 miles to the east coast, despite the long drive, it was a breeze, the car felt rock solid, noise road was minimum considering the fact I had 19 inch tires on it. It handels beautifuly, the engine is responsive enough when you need it to be, and make no mistake about it, you feel like you "own" the road when you are behind the wheels. Great car, it won't handle like my 540i, but that's not what this car is for. By the way I was averaging about 23MPG highway driving and that's not bad for for a 5L V8.


Favorite Features

Interior, Command Center, 19inch AMG tires, sound system


Suggested Improvements

cup holder..it's a joke..seriously..other than that- This is THE car to own..
