2005 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

- Acceleration; smooth at high speeds
- electronics issues
I purchased the CL 6 about four months ago. The car is a dream to drive. The acceleration sends you to 90 mph in the blink of an eye, yet the car feels like its around 60 mph. I test drove the amg model, but the 600's v-12 is much smoother and doesnt have the feel of a muscle car like the AMG version's v-8. I have had issues with elecontronics in the car. Nothing serious, but the stereo system went haywire once, and Ive recently noticed a delay response in the automatic trunk release. Minor complaints. The car is worth is the coin, and Mercedes' service is five star....read morehide

- Stylish body, luxurious interior and the baddest motor to boot!
- Haven't discovered any yet
I have driven an AMG before but the smooth acceleration and quality of ride in this car is unbelievable - you have to drive it to realize. The pillarless body style of the CL, combined with a gorgeous interior makes the car not only fun but a joy to drive.
I looked at the the V12 760Li BMW, which is very nice, but it didn't compare in looks or in the smooth unleashing of torque like the CL600. It is not really a good comparision with the Porsche 911 or 911 Turbo, even though when it comes to the motor, you surely could compare the two.....read morehide

- Eye-poppingly torquey, fast, comfortable, quiet, good ride.
- Really bad fuel economy, really really expensive.
My father recently purchased a reposessed 2005 CL600 for a very reasonable price. The next day was my first day driving it and ever since every car I've driven has felt horribly underpowered. This thing is amazing. Floor the pedal and a satisfying bark of the tires along with your eyes touching your head rest lets you know you're off. The throttle response is amazing. I drag raced a Corvette ZO6 and smoked it as well as several other people who used to think their car was fast (including a guy in a Volvo 850 Turbo who I didn't realize I was racing at first, but still beat). The car is incredibly comfortable and has some really cool features like seat heaters and coolers, a power sunshade and this radar cruise control called Distronic where you set the distance to the car in front of you and it follows, all you have to do is steer. I work at a car wash when I'm not in school and I've had a chance to drive some really nice cars, but nothing yet compares including the new 6-series BMW, Dodge Vipers, Corvettes and one time a Maserati that some rich kid from USC brought in. If you can afford to buy one, or find an amazing deal like my dad did, pick one up now....read morehide
