    Evan M 11 месяцев назад It's worth it to spend the extra on a W221/C216, they're about 20x as reliable and 10x as nice inside. I almost bought an S55 a couple years ago...it had had about 40k in repairs in about 5 years. I didn't buy it. I bought an E60 M5 instead which, somehow, is cheaper to run.

    Theodore Marakas 10 месяцев назад (изменено) Dude, God loves you. You have no idea what it costs to repair this thing. Here’s one repair that will make your cock disappear into your body and never come out again.......replace the hydraulic suspension line that if it leaks, the flammable fluid hits the catalytic converters and the car goes on fire.......I won’t give you a $$$$ amount but I will tell you that the twin turbo v12 must be removed.

  • AppendixCarryOG
    AppendixCarryOG 8 месяцев назад (изменено) i used to work for a MB dealer for a few years, the CL65 is a fun car but I had a fondness for the SL65 so I can put the top down then haul ass on I-5 lol, but yeah these are also insanely expensive to maintain. I remember there were customers cars on our lot for weeks and sometimes months because they couldn't afford to pay their bill or afford to get there car repaired lol Also If Doug relocated to SoCal he should definitely check out the Mercedes Benz Classic Center in Irvine

  • Steven Sitto
    Steven Sitto 5 месяцев назад Only stupid people that never have and never will own a luxury car because of that stupid mentality. Listen up morons because I have owned over 25 Mercedes models. If you get the parts wholesale then it's actually cheaper than an average product in car. www.autohausaz.com is one place. Second those cars are so well built so well engineered and the parts are so superior to let's say Ford,chevy, Dodge, that's they rarely break and if it does it's more likely due to ignorant owners that don't know how to use those cars properly.

    Marcello Wheeler 4 месяца назад @Petrol_ Enthusiast it's not hating, it's just stating facts that's that these are a pain in the ass to maintain and can get very expensive when the inevitable happens. It will break. Good for you that you can maintain your car. That doesn't negate the fact that parts on this car are still charged like this thing was 150k
  • Petrol_ Enthusiast

Both totally unreliable but he could easily afford them, and he loved them(they were both beasts) but even he eventually said enough is enough. He now has an SLK 350 amg and the new mustang 5.0 GT as toys and XKR jag as the daily.

  • Fred Siegel
    Fred Siegel 6 месяцев назад I own a 2006 CL-65 bought it with 12,000 miles in 2008. I've had to spend approx $25,000 in repair bills. I've used primarily dealerships for repairs.. At $ 174.00/hr the bill accumulates quickly. Many of the repairs have been redundant ones. Ignition coil packs have been an issue (3X) Many electrical issues too. Replaced a key for $650.00 . BUYER'S BEWARE

You really should only be buying the highest end cars when you earn 7 figures annually and can repair them without sweat.

  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 5 месяцев назад Toyota and Honda cars are built considering the customers and not to screw them long-term. German cars are only good new, they're designed to be replaced every 5-6 years so if you're okay with that, go ahead.
  • Tempest374
    Tempest374 5 месяцев назад Milton Waddams man you’re just as bad as Scotty
  • Tempest374
    Tempest374 5 месяцев назад Milton Waddams they are built so people with lower incomes can have a reliable car, but if you take car of any car well, it will run well for a long time.
  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 5 месяцев назад That's just not true. Range Rover owners take good care of their cars, perfect maintenance often. Yet everything breaks repeatedly because it's badly built and poorly designed. You're effectively saying "all cars are built the same" which is completely untrue. I had a Renault and things were breaking that would never break on any other car. It suffered from a chronic ignition coil failure that plagued the models from that era. That means every few years you needed new ignition coils. Now tell me a Toyota Corolla or Avensis is the same, lol.
  • Tempest374
    Tempest374 5 месяцев назад Milton Waddams I’m definitely not saying all cars are built the same, the fuck? You didn’t actually give any facts just your own testimonials, and as you said all cars aren’t built the same, there are German cars that are built like tanks, and there are Japanese cars built like paper. luxury cars are effectively a testing ground for tech, once that tech becomes reliable, the tech trickles down to cars like Toyota. If you cant afford to maintain higher end cars, don’t buy them.
  • Kosher puppet Xi Jinping
    Kosher puppet Xi Jinping 5 месяцев назад Wrong. You have no idea what you are talking about. German cars USED to be quite reliable... in the 90s... now they are disasters on four wheels.

  • Ibrahim Strika
    Ibrahim Strika 4 месяца назад (изменено) So you whine about expensive repairs, but knowingly take the car to the dealership, doing redundant repairs? CL 63 here, we have it since 2004, bought brand new, it was the dream car of my dad, and he still owns it. It went to the dealer under warranty, everything else on it was done by him and me in a rent out garage with a bit of help from a mechanic we knew, and the internet. We probably spent 12-13grand in maintenance (excluding oil, filters etc.) in 14 years. Besides, when you buy these cars, buy pristine examples, and most of the work you can do by yourself or at one of those bodyshops where you can rent a spot and work on your car, the mechanics working there will gladly help you out. And trust me, these guys are fucking brilliant.

  • Mike O
    Mike O 3 месяца назад @Milton Waddams You are flat wrong. Back in the day, the engineers designed the car they wanted, then took the numbers to the book keepers. Point being, they built them as well as possible. I'm talking W116 and W126. I hope to own a 560SEL or 560SEc someday. Those cars will go for 1 million miles if you keep up with th emaintenance. Only weak spot is the air suspension.
  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 3 месяца назад @Tempest374 Almost but not quite. Take the Lexus LS400 from the 90s which was a luxury car BUT built well and lasted. Same goes for E-class Mercs from 90s (W124), which back then actually was a luxury sedan. Nowadays car manufacturers know that their main buyers are Arabs who don't care at all about maintenance or how long the cars last, they want to flashiest and most powerful cars and if they cost too much -- even better, they can show off to their fellow sheikhs.
  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 3 месяца назад @CortMarshal That's not how it works, some replacement parts will just wear out fast because how the car was designed. Unless you're going to rebuild the car (with welding), no way to get around it.
  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 3 месяца назад @Mike O Why are you talking about "back in the day"? 80s and 90s Merc, BMW, Audi were amazing but those cars are only classics now and almost irrelevant. Very few have them for day-to-day.
  • Mike O
    Mike O 3 месяца назад @Milton Waddams I can't see the comment I was replying to, but I stand by what I said. The W126 was built by the engineers, with emphasis on build quality and materials. That is the difference between luxury cars from 30 years ago and those of today. Today it is about features, back then it was about build quality.

Had u had it done sourcing the parts itself or independent shop u probably looking at half so it’s 13k. Don’t get me wrong not cheap but really not that bad specially if it’s ur second or 3rd car. Now u want to make well over 100k if u are getting this because if u get fooled in buying this making 50k a year yeah it’s a mess;)

  • Geralt of Rivia
    Geralt of Rivia 2 месяца назад All due respect...But when you bought a nearly $240,000 dollar car, what was expected? The dealership aspect also really hurts. If you can do your own work that repair bill drops quite significantly, and (I forget his name), but he covered the CL65 and what it costs to repair out of warranty and it really wasn't that bad. https://youtu.be/uGT48o4yl8U Most things are pretty much bulletproof in that car. You might've just had a bad string, it happens to all car makes. Also $650 key replacement, lol.

  • Shawn Weed
    Shawn Weed 2 месяца назад Why didn't you get an extended Warranty? I have had both used, low mile, AMGs and MPower cars and bought the extended warranties for piece of mind...surprisingly affordable actually...and saved my ass when my W211 E55 shat its pneumatic suspension...great cars though...when they are working...as a side note...my AMG drive train was rock solid...but I also had lots of sensor issues...little niggling BS things that drove me nuts...in comparison, our M6 never had an issue. Sucked fuel like a fat kid eats cake, but after 40k miles it never had a mechanical or electrical issue.
  • ArchtopNYC

Never trust anyone who swears by only one brand.

I went to a GM dealer recently, they couldn't find one thing to fake wrong. I played devil's advocate. Still nope, as usual, it's just the one little sensor or connector or gasket or this, that, the other. They'll just replace the thing, top off your tire air and windshield wiper fluid, and you're on your way. No ricer mechanic meddling. Try that at a Toyota dealer. Just talked to someone the other day. SEVEN FULL, FILLED PAGES and almost 8 THOUSAND dollars worth of "recommended" repairs just cuz their Toyota is a decade old. Not even a Benz dealer would do that. Next time, he's buying a Korean or American car. And don't even get me started how Jap repairs are 40-60% MORE MONEY and most petty stuff even the Germans cover under warranty!! THAT is why ricers avoid dealers. Because your dealers don't give a rat's ass about you, and you ride off the coattails of the short-lived successes of simplistic and reliable designs that got replaced by VW, Chevy, and Kia wannabes, soy wire nightmares and common sense martyrs.

    KingMacintosh 4 дня назад @Milton Waddams Ask your mom what "leasing" is.
  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 4 дня назад @KingMacintosh I'm in finance. Leasing means you're generally paying more. Loan rates below inflation rate are rare.
  • KingMacintosh
    KingMacintosh 4 дня назад @Milton Waddams No. It means you're not buying the entire car unless you choose. Nimrod. So no, the cost is not 80-150k like you just insinuated two posts ago.
  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 4 дня назад @KingMacintosh Math is hard I guess. Yes, you can rent a car also. If I rent a car for €40 for a day, it's not mine and the time I can use it is limited. It's not rocket science. After the lease is done, you will still need a car.

  • Milton Waddams
    Milton Waddams 4 дня назад @Charlie Hein I believe they are engineered to be unreliable. You don't want to sell people one car that they can drive for 20 years without issues, you want to sell them a car every 5 years. It's also the fault of the people, there's still plenty of demand despite everything. People should vote with their wallets.

    ZDY 5 месяцев назад Because your customers don't value reliability. They get rid of it in 4 years and buy another $200k vehicle. Or are all using lease with incentives provided by their workplace
  • ZDY
    ZDY 5 месяцев назад In other words, their customers don't value reliability, more so about brand, looks, and features. Only poor ppl care about reliability. These cars are designed to have zero hiccups for the first 4 years generally And then it goes downhill fast. Also because most owners of such cars that go beyond 4 years aren't as wealthy as those that constantly switch, but are still wealthy enough to nor really give a shit and often barely treat their vehicles properly. Also while there are more chances of bad vehicles, there's a lot more good cases. My mother's ML350 is bought, kept for 6 years now. She's never even washed the thing. Missed services by months frequently, and even added gasoline to the diesel engine. The car has near 200k km. Still runs with zero problems...But someone else might have the engine eat itself the first time they used wrong gas, or forgot oil change or blue tech servicing.

  • buzzydj
    buzzydj 5 месяцев назад @Bill DeSha it's simple. A majority of buyers for these cars are wealthy. It's more for displaying financial status than the dependence on reliability. So it's not much of a concern, seeing as they'll most likely replace the car in the next 2-4 years anyway. Personally, even if I had fat pockets, I feel the wiser thing would be to lease but NEVER own this hunk of junk. However, if anyone decided to buy, cool. But after 50k miles, they better sell it........FAST lol.

    Allahthe 1 Kaffir 1 месяц назад ​@buzzydj Yes back in the late 1960 early 1970 the son of my neighbor who lived and worked in Switzerland, would come and visit his mum every summer. And each time he came with a differnt car. Back then the idea of leasing a car wasn't even known, so he did drive a car for certain time, before it would start to beak down and needing repairs which were not covered by waranty Can't even remember there was such a thing back then (since I was too young) he'd sold the car. So once he came with a 2 seat Mercedes, a Cabrio (don't ask me the model most likely some SL) and the next year with one VW-Beetle. He lost some money he told his mum, but not as mach as he would spend on repairs...

Mainly on PM. Daily driver for me. That's the other key, they like to be driven. Sitting for weeks at a time wreaks havoc on this car. Things like the ABC suspension need regular attention. Clean fluid is important. MB originally designed the suspension as a lifetime maintenance free item. Not so. I would bet if an original owner simply paid attention to taking care of this car, it would last a very long time. Most new Benz owners rely on the dealerships. The sales department relies on the owner when the car is out of warranty lol! I did do a Kleemann tune bringing the numbers to 750 hp and 840 lb/ft of torque. That was only $800. Love this car!!!!

    costel b 11 месяцев назад I dout you owned one. I owened a 2003 cl55 amg and it didnt have air suspension. It comes with hydraulic suspension just like the sl 600, sl55 and many cars made by benz that were this heavy. And yes they are expensive to maintain compared to most cars. Thats why these cars aren't for everyone.

  • aekimchee2
    aekimchee2 10 месяцев назад As a former CL owner, I can tell you that the costs are in another league from your C-class. Nothing in the CL was engineered to a price point; it's all "the best it can be," which means the parts costs are often astronomical compared to a C or E-class. It's also rarer, meaning parts are harder to come by and fewer OEM knockoffs are available. Also, the car is a technological tour de force and has a lot of electronics that can be quite finicky to maintain. The ABC alone can cost many thousands of dollars if it goes wrong, and when my CL was randomly shutting off while driving down the road, my mechanic told me, "Of course it's a computer issue, but your car has 13 computers."
  • nn 0020
    nn 0020 10 месяцев назад Continued Wisdom Check out this wisdom, you're comparing a regular brand to a luxury brand. In term of reliability vs price vs resale value, who's the clear winner. Toyota ranks higher than Audi by Consumers Reports, you can get a new Camry for about $22K OTD. What about Audi? Like $45K OTD. A bunch of bells and whistles, and a empty 401K...

    No Thanks 3 месяца назад Regarding the maintenance & reliability, sad but true. If it wasn't the drivetrain, it was the electronics, if neither of those gave you problems...it was the suspension. Usually it was a trifecta. However, these issues only seemed to cause problems after the initial one had gotten fixed. It's kind of like how people say death comes in three's. But they are ridiculously, insanely fast. ESPECIALLY on the hwy from 50+. You could be cruising at 55mph, punch the gas and hit 130 in the blink of an eye. The 65's pull like a fighter-jet.Had lots of fun in this, an E55, s55 and S600

  • captmcneil
    captmcneil 3 месяца назад (изменено) Well, the CL and some new SLs burn money. But what do you expect from a twin turbo V12. It's like a four door Ferrari, including horrid depreciation. What bugs me about the CL is that you get lots of the good stuff (including the very heavy chrome doors) in the much cheaper (and imho prettier and much less vulgar) CLK. Get a CLK 500, they're cheap to run and don't break. I bought a 6 year old CLK 350, had it for 7 years. It cost me like 38 cents per kilometer, including taxes, insurance and repairs, which is cheaper than a new Golf where I live.
  • captmcneil
    captmcneil 3 месяца назад (изменено) @ltwargssf R The important point is you need to keep old luxury cars long enough, then they can be quite cheap. Yeah, if you can work on these cars yourself it saves you lots of money. But I think you don't save that much on your annual service in labor. Fuel alone sets me back 4000 bucks a year. With cars like these, parts are also expensive. An injector pump for a CGI Mercedes (a common fault) will cost you like 2000 in parts alone. In the end you profit from the crazy depreciation. You get a 6 year old 300 horse power Mercedes for 20.000, while someone else paid 50.000 over these 6 years for you. You could fix your engine and transmission several times for that kind of money... if a couple of grand per year are too much for you, don't drive Mercedes.

If you can understand the systems you can fix for relatively inexpensive. ABC main probs hold true across most MB of this vintage that are ABC equipped. Tandem pump failures from lack of fluid/filter changes or running blown parts/hoses. In some ways it's like working on a backhoe 😂

  • Ret1173
    Ret1173 2 недели назад (изменено) @Kevin Norris That's a popular knock on German cars but having owned many foreign and domestic cars they ALL have problems one way or the other especially if you keep them long enough. I bought CPO, low-mileage Ford Escape from a Ford dealer and had to sink about $1500 into it of uncovered repair work within the first 2 years of ownership. Therefore, if I'm going to pay for maintenance/repair costs I'd rather drive a luxury vehicle than a crappy Ford or Chevy. My friend and business partner has two older BMW X5s (2005, 2013) one of which has cost him a lot of money to maintain but he would rather fix and maintain a luxury car than an ordinary car. In addition, the luxury european cars are for people who are more interested in the driving experience rather than simply getting from point A to point B which you could do on a mule or bicycle.
