- Beastly engine, with unparalleled acceleration and utility all at the same time.
- Transmission replaced twice (under warranty) and Mercedes service is the appaling.
When I got this car I loved it. Great look (still is), great gadgets and very rarely can it be beat by anything on the road. The best part is that you can throw a bunch of people in the car as well. I still love DRIVING the car.
The worst part? My car was on the highway late at night, electrical system failed, breaks stopped working and I rolled to a stop. Turns out, the intercooler failed, turbo failed and the car shut down as a response. My CL500 has also shut down twice over the past year, while I was driving. When I took it to Mercedes, they showed little concern and even less interest in helping me out. After 40 min of waiting for my rental car, I finally confronted the head service manager, who told me that this was not his problem. The indifferent attitude, in addition to spotty reliability by the brand, has led me to think I will stop buying Mercedes (my family buys about 2 new cars every year from them). It is a shame to think what this brand has sunk to over the years and what kind of service and reliability I have bought for $144k.
I think I will start looking at BMW again or finally take that leap and buy a Porsche. Benz just doesn't do it for me anymore.
