Summary:

A stunning saloon car that thinks it's a sporty coupe

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Stunning looks turn heads where ever you drive it. The car has a real presence on the road - it sits lower and wider than the E-class on whose platform it is based.

Very smooth ride with an automatic seven speed gearbox.

Very comfortable interior, using high quality materials. An ergonomically sound design - everything is where you expect it to be.

Rear accommodates only two people because of the central storage console, but does so in comfort. Ideal for a couple with children who want to arrive in style.

Surprisingly large boot.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Congratulations! You are a lucky person to be owning such a breathtaking car:Nothing overdone, just staggering beauty inside or out and a beauty that will not age. This car is a landmark and like the Citroen DS, it will still be breathtaking in 50years time. Wish I had the money to buy one, but even just seeing one makes you feel glad to have eyes.

I bought a CLS for my girlfriend in June and she hasn't regretted it for a moment! Funnily enough I am considering replacing my BMW 5 Series with the Maserati Quattroporte../

(See abve) Don't think the car has done much wrong - so far the main fault has been the driver's airbag fault indicator coming on without there really being a fault. The g/f, though, that's another story...she's had two collisions and written off 2 tyres through lousy driving and is no longer part of the picture! Go figure...

Summary:

Fantastic car, the best I've ever had

Faults:

Phantom coolant level warning which turned out to be erroneous. No problem found and no catastrophic meltdown. Just the inconvenience of having to take it into the dealer to be checked.

General Comments:

Car looks great and is a real head turner.

Frequently see people pulling out their mobile phones to take pictures (especially on the motorway)

350 engine, 7 speed auto box is sooooooo smooth.

Not so practical if you have a large family as it only has four seats.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS is quite possibly, one of the most unique looking cars you can buy today.

Is just simply beautiful!
