Mercedes-Benz CLS550 Problems

Replace Brake Rotors When Pads are Worn and Squeaking

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).

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.

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.

Tail Lights Do Not Light On The Sides

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.

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.
