Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG Problems

Active Body Control System Can Leak Hydraulic Fluid

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.

Door Control Module May Fail

A door control module/actuator may fail. Our technicians recommend finding an expert to repair them. Taking the door trim panels off requires expert knowledge because they can break and the pieces are very expensive.

Oil leak at oil sensor
Oil can leak through the seal on the oil sensor or from the sensor itself. The lower oil pan must be removed and the part replaced.

Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG Reviews

This is a true sports car at a cheap price, service is another story..... at the dealer take your vaseline with you and something for shock therapy.....compareable parts are available aftermarket and online which usually saves about 75% off the cost. Service it well, it is the most exillerating car to drive, i run mine at 100 mph for hours at a time and love it!
This is a super car as far as the motor and how the car handles. But the ABC Active Body Control system breaks down a lot and the repair cost is simply ridicules. Another poorly engineered item is the SRS system, It has many sensitive sensor that easily malfunction or just burned out. Frustrating…
