2008 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Problems
Rear air springs (bellows) may develop leaks, which causes the air pump to run more often to maintain ride height. Our technicians recommend that leaking air springs be replaced.
The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern.
Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the front thrust link bushings cracking and causing excessive movement in the suspension. The thrust link bushings are fluid-filled (to help reduce vibration), so if they crack, they will leak oil.
It is not uncommon to encounter premature failure of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every two years in order to help prevent this problem.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Reviews
Powerful, comfortable, sexy good looks. The intoxicating exhaust note and solid feel of the 507 horsepower boost in your back is accompanied by startlingly efficient braking - hold on to your beagle, baby and blue suede shoes and anything else loose in the cabin until you get the feel for getting on the binders. The thrust of the engine, paddle shifters and rock solid feel of the steering leads me to a bit of overconfidence at times if I'm not careful. (When I see my wife's fingernails digging into the armrests, I know it's time to return to reality.) Comfortable on a road trip and classy driving to the symphony -- as an owner rather than a jaundice-eyed car critic, I give this car high marks because it is such a satisfying pleasure to own and drive. The occasional mechanical repairs are the price of admission.
