My CL600 Personal Experience/Problems

been a long time of this forum, but joined to you all about my CL600 experience. car has always been one of my all time cars due to the fact that I am a fan of coupes with the lack of i.e. Bentley Brooklands, the new C70, the W215/216 CL series, The CL is by far the most appealing, but upon debut, I did not have $150,000 to pay for the gas guzzler tax, luxury tags, etc as I was only a freshman in school. Not only that, the year waiting period to get one instantly shoot down any on the chance of purchasing one. In my experience, I never wanted the V8 or the V8 AMG CL55 version, but I did yearn for the V12 There are numerous reasons for the CL600 over the others, but importantly: the smoothness, the cylinder mode (only available on the 01 02 and of course V12 bragging rights. In any I went to college, got a job, and proceeded to buy a W215 2002 for only $30,000, a great at the time (the car had about miles). Boy was I in for it, and thank God I purchased an warranty.

Do not get me wrong, I still think the W215 series is the most car ever produced by Mercedes, and better than anything produce today. The only car by I may like better is the 1.5 Million Mercedes CLK GTR; like ever be able to afford unless I’m Bill Gates In any event, I need more two hands to count the number of I’ve had with this I’ve gotten all the famous with the exception of wind add to that some not so talked problems, but lets get into the subject on exactly what I’ve had, their to repair, and the cost to maintain vehicle (I’ll estimate):

-B $500. Also, go figure I take it in on vacation in Miami, the V12 is oil all over the place. It’s the oil intercooler, go figure, and it’s right in the middle of the V12, go figure. It’s a $7000 ON TOP of my B-service, oh, go figure. At that I’m thanking God I purchased the extended and I lucked out of only having to pay that I was originally planning on for vacation. My first repair the car, it was bound to happen time as the oil intercooler problem to be popular with this You want to know another problem, coil packs, the one that failed upon the car up. Another $1000+ part, and me for the warranty.

-A couple moths later I’m around, Bam, ESP failure, ABC ‘turn off your radio the car dies in the middle of the road Oh geez, I better pull off to the of the road and turn the car off. I do so, and out of turn the car back on to see what happen. No errors, ok, maybe an blip. My wife and I drive to Nashville the next day and get bombarded the same errors, but this my car stops for me in the middle of the high The battery is dead, and at this I’m assuming the alternator drained it for me. I have my brother-in-law bring me a new dollar battery, I hobble the car to the Benz dealership. The alternator IS and I knew it was not going to be as cheap as the $35 for my 1966 Pontiac GTO. it’s roughly $2000, a $1900+ difference. I pay about and warranty covers the rest.

I make it for about six months any problems; I mean pop open a of Champaign and celebrate because it six months without a problem this car is something to celebrate. I go to the car thinking about how good it has to me, then proceed to notice all over bottom of my engine I guess my lucky streak is let’s take it down to the dealership; I mean, it needs a anyway, I might as well away a couple thousand I’m down there, right? out the water pump is about to Let’s do another comparison $12 dollar water pump for the ’66 $500 water pump for the (let’s add about $1000 in to that). So, $500 dollar B $1500 dollar water some odds and ends, will cover most of the pump.

Ok guys, brace yourself for repair, the mother of all repairs, as it more than my mom’s new Chevy Malibu. I take it to the Benz dealership less a week after getting it for the water pump repair. The started to tap horribly, it’s my $125,000 dollar car turned a $500 dollar piece of Maybe they shorted my car a quarts of oil when they a B-service, if only I was that The dealer needs me to dish out to rip the motor apart and see what the is. The conclusion is this: I need to replace every component in engine right down to the My car only has about 60,000 on it when they tell me Also, a couple of electronic have failed including one dollar gadget, whatever the it does. How much is this? Why about $22,000; I’m not mad, and I’m not at this point I’m laughing I’m about to go insane. They my car almost three months and I pay a deductible. At this point, the is worth its’ weight in even though they to weasel their way out of it.

Now, at this point had every popular problem this car except an ABC failure! Yay for me? no! I want that thing to before my warranty expires on May 10, I don’t want to pay 4 grand for a repair. My prayers were when my car’s ABC system a dump May 1, 2009. Add to that, my light also came on me driving it down to the dealership, so I that means, it’s it, burning it, or the electronics are lying to me. It need a $500 dollar

I swear, if the car didn’t look so I would have dumped it a time ago. My cost of just for maintenance repairs warranty without warranty: with, 35,500 without the pending ABC and ‘low oil’ problems). This also a lot of minor problems such as a cover issue, reclining issue, washer-fluid cap issue, shorts, etc. I guess I also include the $1000 for new The car basically costs more to than I purchased it for (I paid for it).

In conclusion, maintenance repair on a is for those with warranties, and for who have an endless supply in If you don’t fall into one of categories, then you should not be in the for a car like this unless you to sell you house to maintain it. And you can yourself it’s going to be I mean, it was on the Forbes top ten most cars for its’ model the prices you see on ebay are a deal in Any vehicle that costs than a new vehicle to repair is not the vehicle for you. Do I love my car Yes I do.
