2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Problems

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The active body control system can leak fluid from numerous areas, including the tandem pump, hydraulic lines, struts, and/or seals. If it is not repaired, the vehicle ride height could drop too low and cause damage to the undercarriage.

Drive Train -- Verified

A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by cracked and/or shredded driveshaft flex discs, resulting in excessive driveshaft movement. If not repaired, damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, transmission, or differential can occur.

Brakes -- Verified

Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Engine -- Verified

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The side window glass can delaminate. If this were to occur, replacement of the affected window would be necessary.
