1999 last year of the W140 production , very special car :) by Sid Diglisic on 04/19/2013. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL600, Owned 2 years.
Pros: In 1999 there is only 15 of these CL 600 sold in US according to the MB USA . If you own one of these you have a collectors item . I know one thing, MB will never make such a great car again , the value will only go up.
Cons: gas consumption
Overall review: A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The most luxurios touring coupe I ever had the pleasure of owning !!!!!!! by Dadde-"O" on 06/21/2006. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL600, Owned 1 year.
Pros: This car demands respect! From the second this V-12 lights up to the second it is turned off you can light the tires as far as you can see or ride in the most luxurios comfort imaginable. I have had mine off the ground (all 4 tires) at over 100 MPH and it landed straight as an arrow and never lost traction. Try that in your car.
Cons: I think the slotted oversized rotors should be standard equipment, but ive never had a problem stopping. I guess they need something to alure you to the AMG.
Overall review: I feel safer in this car than a police cruiser. For 5000 LBS. dollar for dollar the best thing i have ever done for myself..... For those of you who think you cant afford a 1999 CL 600 go and price a 2006 PT Cruiser. Service is not an issue with me, I have not had to do anything major to mine in 69000 miles, how much have you spent on the ford you own???????

Theme park ride for grown-ups! by grinnin in Maryland on 11/02/2013. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL600, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The smoothness with which this car puts this much power to the ground is crazy. In a recent trip to Atlantic City, NJ., had the chance to finally let this car run as it was designed, on the turnpike. At 55 or so mph this cars gauge reads 16mpg. As I wound it up to 95, it actually comes into its own "happy place" and settled in around 20mpg! Wind noise was extremely low considering the speed, and although I was on a long flat straightaway, it just felt like it was on rails. No "wondering" due to over or under steer. This car was obviously designed to be driven at Auto-Bon speeds for long periods of time. Whish I could have a shot at one of those Arizona desert roads to see how she does at 125
Cons: Not a big fan of leather seats, never have been. Heated in the winter, but in the summer they don't "breath" so my back gets a bit hot.
Overall review: I have been able to put the suspension in the "sport" mode and use the manual gate shift while running it through some curvy country rouds in western Maryland. When considering the amount of weight you're slinging into these type of turns, the car is quite impressive.....and an absolute BLAST to drive.

CL600 V12... Does it get any better than this?! by Philly Billy on 03/29/2004. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL600, Owned 1 year.
Pros: This car is ridiculous. More highend power than you know what to do with. The styling might be a little outdated, but it is classic. The V12 has more than enough power, though a few extra horses could have been added. The new MB V12 has about 100 more horse power. I am 6'5" and have plenty of room (though no can sit behind me). If you have this car... keep it, it is a true classic!
Cons: It is definitely a gas guzzler, but if you can afford this car, what do you care? A navigation system, and larger standard wheels would have been nice. Maintence can be pricey, but the car rarely needs to be serviced.
Overall review: Best car I have ever owned by far! I am holding it for a while, because where do I go from here?! I prefer the styling over the newer, smaller CL. There is a good chance you will never find a better car than this one.

Where did the quality go with Mercedes? by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/10/2004. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Solid,safe, performs and demands respect. Gets you over 100 with grace and class.. Vault like security incredible silence due to dual pane windows. This was the last year they made this model as a CL only 98-99 so they are rare but all the kinks have been ironed out from S-class era, which I do not believe they had any really.Simple the best car made in the world for the price.
Cons: A little boxy, but with proper wheels and suspension this car is just right.
Overall review: In a world of cheap Mercedes with plastics and the lower end models to accomadate the average american Mercedes has slipped. This is one of the few quality cars today. If see one, enjoy it, they are rare. If you can find one availble buy it! You may never need another car again.
