2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Sedan CLS500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I really like the exterior design. My wife likes a coupe but I like a sedan. When I first saw this car I knew it was just the answer to our needs. She loves the design too. It drives like "silk", smooth and quick.


Best Features

The favorite features are the silhouette and the smooth driving feel of quickness and quiteness.


Worst Features

The steering wheel is ugly and the screen display is not as good as the CLK's.

Review

Mercedes has really created yet another piece of art with this machine. Not only does it look good, but handles like a charm and is very comfortable to drive. This car is also very well built. Not the usual creeks and rattles you can sometimes experience with a new car. This one stays solid and rides very smooth. One of the other great things is all the bells and wistles. There's a button for eveything.


Best Features

Ride, performance, and gadgets.


Worst Features

There is really nothing I would recommend they improve at this point.

First foreign car owned. Vehicle exceded all my expectations. Previous ownership 15 Lincolns. Transmission very smooth. Acceleration what anyone would hope for. Design was strongest reason for buying.

Seven speed transmission. Quiet, powerful engine, very quiet ride

Review

I love this car but unfortunately I have had issues. The check engine light came on and took 3 trips to the dealer to fix. The steering column angle sensor went bad and had to be replaced and most distressing (the new 7-speed transmission) a clunkly downshift from 3-2 when coming to a stop. The dealer fixed this but 2,000 miles later it is back. Of course everyone knows how it is impossible to come to a smooth stop with those electric brakes. It kills me because I love the car.


Best Features

Looks, looks and looks!


Worst Features

More interior storage would be nice.

Review

From the first day I took delivery, this car turns heads wherever I go. It has style and grace and is a true joy to drive. Worth every penny of the price. I have had three Mercedes in the past (450 SL, 300 D, 380SE) and this one is the best. It is a 4 door sports car. Handles better than my former C5 Corvette.


Best Features

Responsive driving feel and unbelievable sound system.


Worst Features

Slight raise in headroom in rear. Better telephone system and selection of XM radio as an option.
