Mercedes-Benz CL600 Reviews and Owner Comments
2002 Mercedes-Benz CL600Visitor, Bonita, CA, February 07, 2013 17:29Wow! What a beautiful. Car. Especially after my exterior modifications. Drives incredible. Modified interior updated center navigation upgraded drl replaced old fog lights upgraded grill to 2011. Quad exhaust smoked custom finished side marker lights and tail. New 19 inch wheels. Ok enough of the good. Bought it 3 years old 75000. Campaign issues covered oil sensor migrating to module covered abc lines prevent fire hazard covered. Abc tandum pump replacement. Water cooled alternator replaced condenser ac compressor . Now the biggie. Oil cooler gasket leak. Design flaw. Must lift manifold take heads of to repair. Mercedes won't seal gasket. You must buy new modified intercooler. Bad 600 for but good if it means you never do again. This is a 8day 8hours each day job. Do the math. Repairs covered by campaign 13,500. Parts not 23k. Car has 125k miles so for 50k miles driven 38k not including gas oil changesvand basic tune with up cost. Oh one last thing.The price of the used car in 2005 was 68k. So what do I think of this car. When it's running nothing better when it has problems I want to blow it up with a tank

2002 Mercedes-Benz CL600Visitor, Cambridge, MA, July 15, 2010 03:50Beautiful car with the worst possible electronic engine management. Endless repairs, right, left and middle bank in the iginition system changed, because the master computer declared it faulty. Thereafter the master computer exchanged, as it was where the problems originated). All at extreme costs and before 40,000 miles. Dealer helpful, but Mercedes France throughout ignorant. Today the car often drains the battery night-over, and the only reply I can get from Mercedes is: 'That not unusual for a Mercedes'. As mentioned at the beginning: A very beautiful car, extremely unreliable and costly to own in every respect. 'Constructed' ZIP used, as the site apparently doesn't accept foreign ZIPs.
1999 Mercedes-Benz CL60099CL600 and 03 DeVille DTS, Albany, NY, February 18, 2010 20:52I bought this, my dream car (realistic one at age 22), in absolutely perfect condition. It is black on black/grey two tone with burl walnut interior veneer. This vehicle is the epitomy of luxury....WITH BALLS!!!! This thing is no joke...I take friends for rides down the highway and they are literally looking for the safety parachute!! lol Seriously though, MINUS the BS problems, this machine screams HIGH Class! The interior...forget about it...it is unreal...there is NO plastic on the interior with the exception of the vents and switches. I do however deal with small/large ANNOYING problems, for example, when it started to get cold up here in upstate NY l somehow slowly lost heat on one side of the car, then completely throughout the whole vehicle!? WTF?? I feel like there is some sort of bubble or air pocket in my cooling system, and my local guy can't seem to figure it out. Can someone who knows A LOT about these W140 body style Mercedes get back to me?!?!Enthusiast
