2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Making sure they can get in and out without straining to hit their heads!
Otherwise, once in the car, it's very comfortable. Bucket seats in front and rear! Very smooth and powerful.
Great car and super looking!
AMG Sport Package! Great!
Little problems at 66,000 miles.

2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS63 AMG 4dr Sedan (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

What a great car! Avg of 3.8 sec for 0-60. Most other drives don't expect a car of this size to be so fast. Great look, great drive. Gas milage seems to be around 16-19 for average driving. Breaks are awesome! But expect to pay to replace them, not cheap. Your head hurts if you slam on the breaks.... it stops that quickly!


Best Features

power, control and brakes.


Worst Features

wish they would have offered more of the feature offered in the S-Class...

2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Such a great looking car. Can only imagine what the CLS63 must be like. Somehow I'm getting 22-24 MPG on the highway. Both good and bad, it feels like a luxury car and not a sportscar.


Best Features

7 speed trans. Great power even for a straight 550. Keyless go is a nice feature.


Worst Features

Retractable side mirrors would be nice. The door windows need a sensor on the handle to drop them down slightly when opening the doors. They activate too late and the window pulls at the top rubber unless you open very slowly. The seats are not very comfortable.

2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS63 AMG 4dr Sedan (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

As an update, the fuel economy has averaged now around 19 mpg, which has now fully satisfied me. Also, the multi-contour air pressured seats are so comfortable that I no longer feel a need for automatic message seats. We decided to personally test the acceleration time for our car, and it ended up around 0 - 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, which is pretty close to what the dealer said it was.


Best Features

Everything: the power, the looks, the luxury, the performance, the attention, the comfort, and the fact that you can outrace a Ferrari F430 or a Lamborghini Gallardo


Worst Features

The only thing Mercedes could have done was to add a designo badge anywhere on the car. If you don't know what you're looking for, you might it for just a beautiful exotic Mercedes, instead of an extremely fast and luxurious exclusive, exotic Mercedes. Other than that, I am still loving this car!

2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Before I chose my 2009 CLS-550 with AMG package, I test drove a 2009 Jaguar XF. XF is a nice looking car but the 1st minute I got into CLS-550, I knew that this is the one. CLS-550 has superior interior design, very comfort ride (both locally and on highway), its eyes-catching exterior makes CLS-550 no comparison in its class. Fun to drive.


Best Features

Extraordinary interior & exterior designs, user friendly NAV system and yes, it allows destination input while the car is moving. Great sound system, love the keyless start/stop feature.


Worst Features

Sometimes side mirrors kind of block my view at stop signs, I have to watch carefully not to hit a pedestrian (maybe I should sit higher). Satellite radio option can be removed; 3. MB bluetooth's full features including "phonebook download" should be compatible with all cell phones.
