2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
Love this car for the styling and performance. We picked it up in Feb 2005 for my wife and it gets stares everywhere we go. It is the best looking Mercedes I have seen since the Gull Wing. The rear seat headroom is marginal as to be expected with any coupe. I am 6' tall and have an inch or two to spare. My wife is very happy with this car and I am considering buying one for myself.
The coupe styling with 4 smaller doors allows better access in a tight parking garage. Steering and brakes are very responsive for a mid-size car. The seven speed transmission always seems to find a gear for quick acceleration. The DVD navigation is much faster than any of my previous cars.
I would like a smaller version of this car for my long daily commute.
