2005 Mercedes-Benz CLS 320 CDI 3.0 turbo diesel
Great car. A classic in the making
Front left suspension spring snapped while sitting on the drive!
Generally pretty happy with the car. I just love the look of it. I am normally a serial car buyer, quickly bored and wanting to move on to another model. However this is the first car I have kept for so long (5 years!).
I don't think I will sell it now as it represents great value. And it is bound to become a classic.
The 7 speed gear box seems sometimes a little confused as to which gear it should select.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Glad you said "a classic in the making". If I hear one more "instant classic", I'll scream.

I am a new owner (06 model year), and I can tell anyone reading this that this is one very good car.
The engine is very powerful and pulls strongly throughout the rev range, whilst still managing 30 - 35 mpg.
The interior has a high quality feel, and even in basic trim is very well appointed.
Then we come to the exterior, this car is an automotive work of art (personal opinions may vary).
