A well-equipped German luxury sedan in ultra-clean condition and at a great price? Now, that would be hard to pass up. This 2002 Mercedes Benz CL500 has only logged about 36,000 miles - about three years worth of driving, by most standards - and it's obviously been looked after with care during its lifetime. It sports a clean CarFax report and it carries a great array of comfort and convenience features to make driving it an absolute pleasure.
The sight of a smoothly contoured luxury ride decked out in regal black has been a prescription for enthusiastic stares for nearly as long as cars have roamed the roads. The dramatic color makes its desired impact and is free of the dreaded blemishes that often detract from otherwise impressive curb appeal. Over the years, Mercedes has developed quite a knack for equipping their work with timelessness - they make durable cars, so you see quite a few on the road and very few of them have lost even a slight bit of their aesthetic relevance over the years. This one sure hasn't. The Mercedes doesn't tend to sport a lot of chrome, but every bit that's on display is looking very sharp and combines with a fresh overall appearance to make a car that creates a great first impression.
Inside, you'll find all those hallmarks of luxury the Mercedes brand is synonymous with, amplified by a very clean condition that makes everything look even that much more appealing. Clearly, this is an interior that's been treated with plenty of respect - the contoured front buckets look pretty much as they did when they were new as they straddle the center console, and the various burlwood accents on hand here are as glossy and smooth as you could want. Mercedes has always been well ahead of the curve as far as the comfort and convenience features they equip their cars with, so in addition to the tilting and telescoping steering column, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, power seats, AM/FM/CD stereo and remote door openers that are on board, you'll also find driver and passenger side airbags, an anti-theft device and a navigation system - the latter a feature that still is far from a given even today - and everything appears to be in very solid working order.
Raise the hood and you'll be greeted by what is no doubt one of the most instantly recognizable logos in automotive history. It sits atop a 5.0 liter V8 that's just now at its prime - remember, this CL500 has only logged about 36,000 miles - and propels this German icon forward with plenty of gusto. It combines with a 5-speed automatic transmission that's not only perfectly geared for versatile performance but is also shiftable, allowing the driver to take control of the “reins” when he or she so chooses. Mercedes has also been known for quite some time for precise and responsible power steering, so this car is an absolute pleasure to navigate, and with featured 4 wheel power disc brakes and a multi-link suspension, it stops quickly and easily and offers a great ride on its set of 17” alloy wheels outfitted with General tires.
