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


Review

This is an awesome car. Looks great and is fast. This is my first Mercedes and I had high expectations. I was not disappointed.


Best Features

Sloping hood. Mercedes name etched in door runner. I like how it lowers itself after you turn the car off. I also like how the windows seal themselves after you close the door like an airlock


Worst Features

There are a couple things they need to improve though. Cupholders: If you don't push the little chrome button before pushing the cupholder sides down it jams. Also, you can't use it for change because it slides underneath the telescoping cone and won't allow the cupholder to be pushed down.

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


Review

I really like the exterior design. My wife likes a coupe but I like a sedan. When I first saw this car I knew it was just the answer to our needs. She loves the design too. It drives like "silk", smooth and quick.


Best Features

The favorite features are the silhouette and the smooth driving feel of quickness and quiteness.


Worst Features

The steering wheel is ugly and the screen display is not as good as the CLK's.

Review

Mercedes has really created yet another piece of art with this machine. Not only does it look good, but handles like a charm and is very comfortable to drive. This car is also very well built. Not the usual creeks and rattles you can sometimes experience with a new car. This one stays solid and rides very smooth. One of the other great things is all the bells and wistles. There's a button for eveything.


Best Features

Ride, performance, and gadgets.


Worst Features

There is really nothing I would recommend they improve at this point.

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


Review

First foreign car owned. Vehicle exceded all my expectations. Previous ownership 15 Lincolns. Transmission very smooth. Acceleration what anyone would hope for. Design was strongest reason for buying.


Best Features

Seven speed transmission. Quiet, powerful engine, very quiet ride


Worst Features

Include basic warranty similar to BMW

Review

I love this car but unfortunately I have had issues. The check engine light came on and took 3 trips to the dealer to fix. The steering column angle sensor went bad and had to be replaced and most distressing (the new 7-speed transmission) a clunkly downshift from 3-2 when coming to a stop. The dealer fixed this but 2,000 miles later it is back. Of course everyone knows how it is impossible to come to a smooth stop with those electric brakes. It kills me because I love the car.


Best Features

Looks, looks and looks!


Worst Features

More interior storage would be nice.
