"I've owned numerous Benz and BMW's and this is by far the best car that I've owned. The performance is outstanding with tremendous thrust. Ride and comfort is also excellent as long as you are under 6 feet tall. The low roofline, while stunning to look at, can obstruct visability and takes some getting used to. I just hope that in the future that Benz continues to improve their client experience at the dealership as I've walked out of several MB stores with a less than satisfied feeling. My wife drives a Lexus, and the dealership experience is truly exceptional. If you can bring yourself to leave the car with a valet, it will always be one of the cars on prominent display. A real head-turner car, no doubt!"
"If you are under 6 ft tall and enjoy, sleek styling, speed and great fit and finish in a car, then you will love this car. As a small framed woman who loves all of the above-the CLS550 is an incredible car. All the performance of a sports car with convenience of a 4 door and big trunk. The transmission is outstanding and handles very well. Only downside is Navigation system."
"This car has it all. Good looks, excellent quality and reliability and can smoke almost any car on the street. If you can afford to play, then you can afford to pay, it guzzles the gas when you drive it hard."
Pros: "Great road feel, Styling, defintly a head turner."
Cons: "Lack of touch screen, Nothing else wrong"

"My 2009 CLS 550 is a great car. Missing a touch screen for a car that started off at 75K. My 2003 MDX at least have a touch screen navigation, but hey Everything else is great, Finally back to a great quality car. As of 04/2014 I have 60,000 miles. I had only one issue that was covered by the warranty at 45,000 miles [ Parking Switch }. I got 54,00 miles out of the original set of tires. More exciting than a Lexus, and now just as reliable."
Pros: "Sharp looking, good fuel milage, very comfortable."
Cons: "ABSOLUTELY NONE..NONE THAT IS !!!!"

"Bought it in Atlanta couple of months ago, drove it to Charlotte and got 28mpg with its V-8...
Car is the beast on the road, very sharp looking and it was my dream car and i cannot believe that am driving it.
I could have went with 2010 FX35 with 30K miles locally but i went with my Benz and it was the best decision i made..
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT...."
