Everything with the car is great, except the handling. Ever since i bought the car, the alogment seems to be off. It has been pulling to the right since i bought the car, I had to take it to the dealer twice before they finally agreed to do an alligment, At first, they claimed it was normal for the car to pull to right, which doesn't sense to me. So i took it the second time and they finally did the alligment. However, even after the alligment the car pulls to the right. I don't know if its just my car, or the car's handling is made with a defect....read morehide

- Excellent body styling. Sure head-turner.
- Beverages in cupholders obstruct gear shift knob.
The most stylish, elegant, well-mannered beast on the American freeway. Pick a point, any location on the freeway, and it'll take you there smoothly, effortlessly.

- The most beautiful 4 door hands down. Quite inside and nice control layout.
- Drinks gas at alarming rate- 11.7 MPG! Unreliable from day one. Rough ride with SP1 pkg.
To be fair, this car deserves a star for its looks alone. As I did, many people will buy it because it looks great, like a superstar in an Armani suit. However, good looks are only skin deep. Besides being a quite and smooth higway cruiser with lots of power and good brakes... everything else about this car is annoying. On my 8th or 9th day of ownership, the A/C controls went out on the blink, spewing hot air on a hot day. The dealer fixed the car in less than 3 hours- the time it took to drive home the loaner and come back after some shopping. A week later the engine light came on. It was towed away because after I parked it, it wouldn't start. Dealer dropped off a loaner and 2 days later I had my car back. The dealer also noted adding 2 extra quarts of oil in 2000 miles. Of course the gas mileage has not gotten any better after 6 months time now. I only get 11-12 mpg! This is a total let down as the EPA ratings were 15/19 so I don't even get close to that. Also along the way, the key fob was replaced. The passenger door lock was repaired. The navigation system was replaced and the ABS brake sensors were replaced. When it comes to safety, that's unacceptable. Mercedes you lost a new customer....read morehide

- Plenty of power, great sorround sound.
- not able to rotate tires due to size difference front and back
Great car except for side view mirrors too small, must change that for better visibility. Also front cup holders in the way, and chrome ring falls out.

- This is a MAN Car!
- My wife looks better in it than I do.
I've had my 2008 CLS550 since Aug., and I think it is a beast.
It is very well mannered in every day traffic, but as soon as that 20 something year old pulls up next to you in his Subaru, Honda, Nissan,
tuned up what-ever, you can teach him a real lesson in power. Having the ability to go 0 to 100 and actually doing it, are two different things.
The CLS550 gives you all of the confidence in the world to lay waste to those young men. And that's with MY WIFE driving!...read morehide

Love the looks, love the drive. Exceptional styling, fun to drive. This is the best looking 4 door coupe. Great head-turner, gets preferred parking in front of the hotels and restaurants entrances.
Comfortable space for a couple of adults or kids car-seats in the back seat. Very comfortable hugging seats. Never had any problems.
Cup holders with water bottle get in the way of the gear shift and NAV controls and not much room for side storage in the door, but overall interior is beautiful.
You could blow out the low profie tires by hitting pot holes. I would recommend getting the insurance it is worth the money.
This is my 5th Benz, and the best! I had a E500 sport before this. I have had my CLS550 for a year now, and I love it....read morehide
