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


I bought this car just after the announcement of the new CLS series and the day it hit the showroom floor. I had my heart set on a BMW 600 series and switched at the last minute. It was love at first sight. Now the lease is expiring and I have to decide what to do. After lots of research I have concluded there is no better car in the market than the one I have in my driveway right now. I would love to trade for something new but for now I am sticking with my still showroom new looking CLS500.

Best Features

Appearance, ride and handling.

Worst Features

The plastic chrome on the cupholders and steering wheel MB emblem. They have both peeled and been replaced under warranty multiple times. For a car in this price range... Unacceptable!
