Smooth and powerful
By Mike from Ashburn on


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


It has been a great experience thus far. I have had to hang on tightly when occasionally my foot gets too heavy. I didn't expect the engine performance and its been a pleasant surprise. The control is more complex than it has to be (how many menus just to change the light?) But after its all together easy to work with and maintain. Its only been a month so we'll see if it lives up to the Mercedes reputation for quality.

Best Features

V8 with plenty of extra RPMS. Classic body style.

Worst Features

More leg room in rear. (I know it was a coupe and now a sedan, but is 4 inches much to ask for?) Too many controls on steering column. Lexus seems to be able to do with two switches what others need four to do. Maybe a little market research on ergonomics?
