Pros: "Fun To Drive"

Cons: "Has everything you need. It's really a chick car"

"I LOVE LOVE LOVE my 550CLS - It's Diamond White with light grey interior - Fabulous. Much more beautiful design than the new CLS550s. If the new 550CLS had similar lines, I'd buy another one. But instead will wait to see if they bring back the Sexy Look instead of the Bulky Look - bull nose design. Ideally suited for a female -- too sweet for a man unless he's little."

Pros: "excellent style and drivability"

Cons: "Originally very expensive auto but worth the cost1"

"This car was an 'eye catcher' when it first appeared for sale in the USA in 2006. It became the first of the so called 4 door coupes (which became a much copied design and style). The car had the AMG package but was equipped with the 500 engine. To this day, the style and design still brings comments and garners many admirers. It had all the major options including adaptive cruise control and with the exception with a emission control element has been 'trouble free'."

"This is a classic from the front end to the rear. From a visual perspective it set the standard on design for many others who followed. The interior is small but roomy. Where the car shines is on performance...top end exceeds 160 and yet it corners like a racer and provides 27 MPG at 75 purring along at 1800 RPM. My car has never been driven in the snow, only been in the rain three times and has never been through a car wash. It is in a heated garage and gets detailed every 120 days,"

"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."
