"Performance is solid with excellent handling and acceleration. The styling is beautiful although you pay for it in rear seat ingress/egress. There have been a few faults, mostly electrical, but all covered under warranty. This car has an AMG sport package and while it looks great, the front air dam is FRAGILE. I've had to replace it twice due to ice chunks that populate our Minnesota winters."
"I purchased my 2007 CLS550 in June, 2009. I shopped for months before deciding on the CLAS550. I am extremely pleased with the styling and comfort. The car responds well and has great pickup. The heads turn as I drive by."
