Pros: "very fun comfortable ride with excellent pick up."

"The car's been great and it still is so beautiful, but it just went off of warranty so time for me to sell. High end Black leather interior with lots of wood plus silver exterior makes for a super classic and elegant presentation. I love the look of this car. I bought this car from Mercedes dealer with 9,000 miles in fall of 2008. Milege is probably 6o/40 freeway/ surface street driving. Body is quite perfect less a couple of small dings on side of roof which is a mystery of how they got there. Rest of body is excellent. Interior also excellent. Will need tires sometime soon as well as brake rotors and pads. Just had drivers seatbelt and left air strut replaced. Car had been serviced by Mercedes dealerships only."

"Have owned this car two years and its the best car I've owned yet, previously owned BMW, Acura. The interior is gorgeous and comfortable. Taller people do need to watch when they get in the back, because of the shape of the car. Seems solid but acts like a sports car when you put it in either sports mode. I have had more compliments on the design/looks of this car than any other. Its a great car to take on long road trips and short town jaunts."

"Better to buy next body style, cls55o, way nicer car. also very important to know that they have completely different engines, and hp way less less in 2006 model. so i would reccomend for a consumer to pass on cls500, and to purchase the cls 550!!!"

"CLS63 with performance pack and all the other options. Dynamic seats that hug you through the curves. Spectacular performance in all situations. Granted, maintenance is a bit costly but worth the expense for the performance received. If not on top of the controls you will easily be exceeding 3 digits on the speedometer. Passing is a breeze. ride is only exceeded by the S. On the negative side, navigation leaves a little to be desired and voice dialing is not included."

"I was shopping CPO CLS550 and ran across the one that I bought. It was Diamond White Edition of which only 550 were made. At that point I knew this was the one. I use the car as my daily driver and still just love getting behind the wheel. I have contemplated trading it in now for a newer model but cannot bring myself to do it because of it being a special edition. Great looks. Great power. Great handling. Has the AMG trim and rear spoiler."

"Easily the most stealthy 400hp V8 I've ever witnessed; the ability to accelerate full throttle with a deep rumble barely audible on the inside and seen as a quick flash on the outside. Inside, the ride is quiet and smooth, like sitting on a feather bed, though the seats themselves could use a little more cushion to top them off. Simply amazing from all aspects, this car is the best in class, bar none. A masterpiece of an automobile for the class level at which it sits."
