Mercedes-Benz CLS550 Problems

Airmatic Pump Motor May Fail Due to Sticking Relay

A sticking relay, causing the airmatic pump motor to constantly run, may causee the airmatic pump motor to fail or the battery to go dead when the car is shut off. Worn airmatic pump mount bushings can causes noises in the front axle while driving on bumpy roads or a buzzing noise.

Leaks From Rear Air Springs

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.

Cracked Driveshaft Flex Discs May Cause Driveshaft Movement/Vibration

A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.

Mercedes-Benz CLS550 Recalls

Rubber Engine Compartment Seal Falls Off

The rubber seal that surrounds the engine compartment may become dislodged from the bulkhead area, and fall into the engine compartment. Dealers will replace the rubber seal free of charge to resolve the concern.

The tail lights may not light up on the sides, which can make it difficult to see the vehicle. This fails to comply with federal safety standards. Dealer will update the lighting controller software free of charge to correct the problem.

A rubber seal at the back of the engine bay may stick to the hood and then fall into the engine compartment, possibly contacting hot exhaust components and causing a fire hazard. Dealers will attach additional retainer clips to the rubber seal free of charge to resolve the concern.

I love my 2008 Mercedes CLS. It does everything I need it to do and serves as a great daily driver. I bought it used in 2011 and have had great luck with it on repairs to date.
This is my first and VERY well deserved Mercedes. I LOVE EVERYTHING about this car and what a great first choice, like they say go big or go home. Amazing looks, style, performance and handling. I am satisfied above and beyond my high expectations. The next step will be the 2011 CLS AMG63.
