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


Review

This is the best production car ever made. The AMG handles with precision. The car enters the highway as a car should, with good power. The interior of the car is very comfortable. It is trimmed in suede and leather. On long hauls it makes the trip memorable.


Best Features

The exterior design of the car, the instrument cluster and the keyless entry.


Worst Features

None

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


Review

I have had the luxury of owning just about 15 different types of luxury and performance type vehicles and this new CLS 500 gives you the best of both worlds. This car handles like a great sports car should and has the quiet smooth ride you would find in a luxury sedan. I get loads of complimeents from everyone who has seen it.


Best Features

The Harmon Karden sound system is great. I also love the styling and body lines.


Worst Features

Need to have a touch screen navigation system and this car should come with satellite radio standard.

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


Review

I had heard that this car was not very well received. To look at it I found it hard to believe. I test drove it, and fell hard. While it could be a problem for 6ft 5 inch people in the back seat, there simply is nothing bad that can be said about this vehicle. The looks are stunning, the ride is silk lightning, and everything about it says....THE PERFECT CAR. I hope that Mercedes realizes what they have accomplished. They have taken back the lead from BMW with one quick stroke of genius. If you are looking for the perfect car, and are able to spend 75k, you cannot find anything better.


Best Features

Looks, ride, cornering, comfort, power.


Worst Features

Make the xenon lights standard.

Review

As a previous owner of BMW's, I must say that Benz has made a major step forward in terms of design and performance. The CLS500 is a fun machine to drive and the body design is outstanding. Whether sitting still or rolling along, it draws a lot of admiring looks. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this automobile.


Best Features

Styling, comfort, handling and acceleration are commendable.


Worst Features

None

Review

This car has cronic transmission problems. This has been replaced and still is sifting like a go cart. Brake vibration problems. Also a problem with leaking lights (water this a been replaced also and still leaks. Electrical problems, windows and sunroof sometimes don't close, the window will make an attempt to close then it reopens Squeeky brakes. Don't buy one! This car needs to be recalled and reworked. Its really Mercedes garbage. This is my second Mercedes and my last!


Best Features

Good looking car
