2008 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL63 AMG CL63 AMG 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

2008 Model, Got her used and does exactly what is says on the Tin... Sold a S500 because it was slower than I expected from standstill and this car is the reason to Live! I look for reasons to travel, Wish the Petrol Tank was bigger, then I would not need to stop.. No problems so far, is an American version in Dubai, and just got the Navigation working and it's sweet. Seats, Amazing, Steering , Amazing. Paid a third of its new price and got 3 times the value of a normal car. Fuel Bad, but who cares, Tyres are expensive but who cares. 50,000 Kms passed and everyone will have been hard, but she takes it in her stride. Engine sound to die for. No real complaints, but read my improvements.


Best Features

ENGINE,ENGINE,ENGINE, Distronic Cruise, Seats (WOW), Radio has fantastic sound, Radar is Different, The looks are Amazing. Finally the Drive, the salesman stated after taking this car home, I will never want to drive another car again? This is so True...... I really waste fuel driving to places the long way! The whole package is Amazing. My wife has a SL500 and it's not a patch. Please Note, This Car has Major Running costs and nothing is cheap on it, Has to be maintained Properly and please only buy one which has a full detailed history and have it checked before purchase for damage or accidents etc. could break your heart later if you buy a bad one. (ran out of room in the review section)


Worst Features

Not Complaining but here goes. Wish the car remembered more settings when you return to the car ( All makes of cars are like this) Have to reset the Climate recirculating every time, Seat Massage etc etc. Bluetooth phone does not always Remember to activate? iPod connection is pre-war and hates my IPhone and ITouch... Good with my old IPod (car is 4 years old and things have moved on) BIG WISH.....Make a convertible version and it truly would be Perfect...... 4 Seater Heaven.....

2008 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL63 AMG CL63 AMG 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

An absolutely phenomenal car that makes CL (or S) driving more excitement than you can imagine. Not quite as much torque as the 12cyl CL600, but quick as nearly anything else on the street. When speed isn't an issue, it rides like a limo - smooth & quiet. With the AMG sport package and 20" wheels and tires it turns heads wherever it goes. Although it's 4500lbs, it feels like a sports cars with the Active Body Control suspension that keeps the car dead flat. The tranmission is tied to the suspension settings and here again goes from smooth and easy to 7000rpm manual only shifting. Actually the middle Sport Mode is the best selction for shifting. Overall, the best Benz I've owned in 20yrs


Best Features

The Distronic 2 needs to be used to be believed as it fucntions as a cruise control with brakes and actually brings the car to a dead stop and then resumes the prior speed, without the driver ever touching the gas or brake pedal. It takes a while to believe it will function as promised, but it does.


Worst Features

Alcantara headliner is very nice, but the seats should at least have the option of a better leather. The power seat control for accessing the rear seats is awkward to use and should have a better "stop" mechanism built in. The gas mileage is not good - 12.5 in the city from a happy lead footer !

Review

'08 CL63 is my 7th MB and by far the best - came out of a SL55. Love the Drive Dynamic seats -simply amazing, as is the Distronic. I can get 2 adults in the back in comfort which is unusual for a coupe. Was going to buy a Bentley GT. Head turner, great interior, wished I had bought the CL65 however as performance won't make your eye balls bleed. As is typical with MB - early problem - had to replace my back window as rear window defroster didn't function. I drive this car 12 mo - put 4 winter wheesl/tires on it; quite acceptable traction and handling in snow.


Best Features

Drive dynamic seats, distronic, great brakes


Worst Features

Faster, MB still doesn't put a truly great stereo in a car at any price.

Review

I was a bit leery about jumping back into the Mercedes fold after a less-than-satisfying stint in a 2000 S-class. My leap of faith has been richly rewarded. This car is fast, tight, and a feast for the eyes. One minor problem, apparently caused by repairman error at 2500-mile checkup. oil not filled all the way. A ten-minute fix. Mine's black with black interior. It handles like a fighter plane on Mulholland Drive. Lots of thumbs-up from fellow drivers. The awesome power, ABC and the active seats make this hands-down the most amazing car I've ever driven. If you can afford it, and can live with the ozone destruction, get on the waiting list.


Best Features

Engine accelerates like an afterburner. Active steering and active seats are awesome on twisty roads. Night-vision.


Worst Features

Better integration of iPod with sound system controls.

Review

Phenomenal car. A beast to drive. Driving stability is incredible thanks to ABC. The front is aggresive and the rear tends to grow on you after a while.


Best Features

The sound of te engine as it reachs 7300rpm.


Worst Features

Add a more beefy styling to the rear to match the aggresive wide look of the front.
