- Good Looks
- lousy car for the Northeast. tires and wheels do not hold up
This is the perfect car for the person who does't mind sitting on the side of the road waiting for AAA or Mercedes road side assistance.
I've owned 5 Mercedes and this is the worst one by far. I'm fighting with the dealer to take it back. 25000 mi in two years and I've gone through 13 tires and 6 wheels. It is not a car for the Northeast. I drive only in NJ and NY and owning this car has been a miserable experience....read morehide

- The style and look of the car makes it worth every penny. Performance is amazing.
- I wasn't impress with the navigation and instrument panel. Bad fuel economy.
I test drove the 5 series and 7 series and wasn't impress. I suggest getting the AMG appearance package which includes chrome rims.

- Great performance and very good looking sports coupe
- entry to rear seats is somewhat awkward, but still has a lot of room
This is by far the best mercedes ever built for the money. This is my first Mercedes and it lives up to my expectations.

- great looks, nice interior design, easy to customize
- steering wheel vibrates and has a shimmy, tight space, the fastest depreciating car I ever bought,
I had the car for four months, 2,000 miles. The car has a bad vibration between 50 to 80 MPH. The dealer has changed the tires 3 times, the rims once, the rottors, balanced and aligned tires, adjusted the exhaust and motor mounts, examined the drive shaft alignment. The car still has a prominent shimmy that can't be fixed.
I love the looks of the car, but will never buy another MB, the dealer now maintains that there is nothing wrong with the car and walking away from the problem.
I cannot wait to fix my big mistake by buying a Japanese car i.e Lexus, where the customer matters and customer satisfaction is #1....read morehide

- Excellent handling, appearance and style is superb!
- Front air dam is too low. Easily scraped on curbs when parking, especially by valets.
Car is an excellent vehicle overall, but I've had the front air dam painted three times due to scraping on curbs while parking, usually a problem with valets. Paint not only scraps, but chips too due to the rather flimsy plastic that makes up the dam.
Transmission is real clunky, especially when going up hills. Not a deal breaker - more of a disappointment for a car this price range. MB needs to address this in future models.
Navigation system/clock/radio is rather confusing to operate. Some of the controls are buttons on the steering wheel, some controls are on the navigation unit itself. Changing the time alone confused the dealership personel. Took me a hour or so to figure it out when I got home.
Other than these issues, the car has been a dream. Great styling, engine performs well, real head turner. Just don't let anyone look under the front end to see your scraped up air dam (it WILL be scaped up, believe me!)....read morehide

- Brought it home in Jan2006 Drop dead Gorgeous curvy and sexy Capriblue.
- The TURN signal leaver and The Cruise control leaver is far too close to each other.
I suggest The Cruise Control Leaver be moved to the RIGHT side of the Steering Wheel. Cruise Control gets in the way when using the Turn Signal. Accidentally hit the Cruise Control when attempting to use the Turn Signal. So got to be Careful on this. Who needs a cruise control in this car anyway ... this car needs to be driven not cruise in :)
Other than the above all else is absolutely FANTASTIC. No problems so
far what so ever. Rides like silk. looks like Venus the goddess of love :) what a car !!! no car on the road has this look ... well maybe the Bently Contnental 4 door. But who can afford that.
I just love every aspect of this .... don't change NOTHING .... Well that is except to move the cruise to the RIGHT !!!
Well a Manual Shift with ALL wheel drive would be the Ultimate Drive in this car. I was before a BMW owner and it was great too. The LOOK on this car is what made me Change to a benz ..... Love it :)...read morehide

- Air suspension is great makes the ride smooth as silk. Exterior and Interior design is unique.
- Xenon 1k option and rims could be better looking.
This is my 1st MB I never really liked it before because I was just not feeling the style. Well, until the CLS came along. The wife and I didn't even plan on buying a car last weekend we just looked at the convertibles. We ended up looking at this car and forgot all about the conv. Car came w/ navi and airmatic suspension. Heated and vented seats came with the car already. The keyless go feature is such a cool gadget it makes James Bond's car look like a relic. The self closing trunk is a show stopper another cool feature. The tranny is a bit jerky on sports mode makes you think there is something wrong with it. And while in that mode the car is to busy shifting up and down the gear. I drive an Infiniti G35 coupe the CLS even with the V8 gets better milage. And as heavy as the car is this thing can move from dead stop lots of torque at low to mid range. Xenon was an expensive option, but never fear I can install one for a lot less than what the dealer is asking for. My neighbors are all envious one of them ended up going to the dealer the same weekend don't know if he bought one I haven't seen him since. Overall the wife and I love the car and the payment we got was the clincher. Drove it to Santa Barabra last Sunday it was a great drive not tiring at all. Car is so comfy and drives so smooth that it makes LA driving tolerable....read morehide
