The Secret MB -- the CL tops the List
By Hawes on


2003 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


I have 4 MBs (03 SL-500, 02 ML500, 97 S-
420, and the CL 500. Have owned over
23 MBs since 1984. Traded an SL-430
(lemon) for the CL-500. Incredible
auto. Balanced, incredible road car,
gas mileage (S**ks), but you know that
when you buy one. -- I actually prefer
it to to the SL-500!! Great driver --
and the seats!!! Go for CL-3 package.
Great build quality (for current
Benzes, that is) and full of pleasant
surprises (e.g., rear head rests raise
and lower, great handling, UV resistant
glass). This is a sleeper in the super
luxury category.... I've a position on
a new Bentley GT and not sure I want to
give up this car to get it. It's that

Best Features

Styling, power train, sound system, Nav system, bi-xenon headlights, the CL-3 Comfort seats!!!, this car "rocks." A real head turner.

Worst Features

Cup Holders are "poor"... Electronic trunk closer is "problematic" -- 50% of the time it works -- check that off and go for the "Parktronic" -- my SL has it and this one needs it.
