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.

Buy with caution

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.

Coup no more...

this is my 2nd cl 500 ,as the first one (2003), was deliverd to me demaged from merceds benz... and after some"persuation" was bought back from me and replaced. this car is beautifull to look at ,inside out but very quirky on many levels--- ride is mushy ,handling is ok but it's no beamer, too many rattles and noises coming at you from all directions. this is not what you'd expect from $100k car! my first(or shall i say second)mb ,and the last one! please ,drive me to the nearest bmw dealership!

The most awsome car on the planet to drive. A sport car that can seat the whole family (if you have a family of 4:-)

This is a beautiful car. Unfortunatly bugs are always popping up. The most recent problems have been with the electric seats and windows not working. One time the car completely shut itself down due to a electrical problem.
