Amazingly unreliable
By amcl500 on


2002 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


M-B has sometime in the last few years
lost its commitment to quality control
and reliable design.

Problems in first 30 days: picked it
up on a Friday afternoon - returned it
immediately: the brake lights didn't
function. Picked it up on Tuesday:
returned it later the same day when it
exhibited a disturbing vibration at
highway speed. (poorly aligned drive
shaft)Next drive showed the car
handled extremely poorly. (M-B
dilivered the car with a cheap set of
tires not suitably rated) A few
mornings later (with only 150 miles on
the vehicle) the car was totally dead
in my garage. The dealer claims it
was "only" a bad battery.
