I had soft close doors and a soft close trunk lid in my 1992 Mercedes 500SEL. Not a new feature. And not cheap to keep working after the warranty ran out.

Please Doug. There are WAY too many idiots on YouTube who make $40,000/yr who are dumb enough to think they can afford this car AND the insane repair bills when something goes wrong. As a Public Service, let's not encourage this kind of irresponsible behavior. These are the same people that voted for Trump and think KISS are a good band LOL

The score on this one is incorrect. Mercedes back at the time did not aim to have a full sport car vehicle that will tear corners and leave all Civics and what not in the dust. Back then it was simply about high comfort where you got only very little response from the street and you would notice only things like the interior or your partner sitting next to you. Back then it was also a statement that you have massive power not to use it from start to stop but simply that *you could use it if you would feel like it* and nothing else. Most owners never experienced the full blast of their car and lived just fine with the feeling that one day they could if they would like to but actually never did :) BTW who would like to own this chasis for a daily and have maintenance costs fairly lower don't go for the AMG version but the regular non-AMG like the CL 500. They are incredibly cheap nowadays here in the EU since fuel economy is a big thing for a few years now and the WOW factor is still strong.

There is a reason this is a $30,000 car. We all know it, so I won't waste my time. If you have $30,000 of fuck-you money, are a mechanic, and enjoy the challenge of fixing a car on the cheap until it is no longer streetable, go for it.

I own a 2005 SL 65 AMG. I turn my own wrenches. Preventive maintenance is key!!!!. I have had it for a year and spent well less than $1k so far. 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!!!!

Always wanted a luxury car and have been on Autotrader gaping at this CL 65 and the SL 600 (it has to have a V-12). $30K seems like a good value, but the comments on this video lean towards insane repair bills. Debating a 6 month ownership of an Aston Martin DB 9 or a Gran Tourismo Maserati, but it seems all cars in this class are a dice roll. Decided to roll those dice and have a great time with a great car no matter the outcome! Thanks for doing what you do, Doug. Still searching for that diamond in a bargain basket on Autotrader.

14.62% devaluation per year or 1.3% per month, US$2.29 per mile(linear) plus fuel, maintenance, taxes and insurance, the question is: How much will it cost to keep? Any part of this machine will cost 10k LOL.

Well, ya know why they tell you what to do when the door is open? Because in some countries *looking over to the USA* you can sue the car manufacturer when you are to dumb to close a door.

In Europe specifically Germany you will get same care in probably half a price and in much better condition. Reason behind that car being so cheap is because its already 12 year old, whoever could afford this car 12 years ago most likely got two new ones in last decade. Also costs of potential repairs would be insane on this car, simple sensor will set you back probably 1000$ if not more. Insurance cost and fuel/tyres will cost you badly as well. I guess in US where most people drive 5 litre monsters doesn't make much difference cause that Merc would be most likely still more economic than typical American pick up truck but burning 10 litres of petrol instead of 25 or 30 each 60 miles makes a difference when you buy the car to actually drive it. Not sure whats the cost of petrol in US but im guessing it would cost you at least 25$ to drive that car using some of its power 100 miles. If you make 10k miles a year (which isn't a lot) you can save probably 1500$ just in fuel. What if you do 100k? Then half of the cost of the car is burned in first year just in fuel. So nothing special, I remember back in early 2000's you could buy 8 year old S600 for 500$ in Germany and in tip top shape.

The reason its 30k is because its an old money pit. A Mercedes that age usually has computer fault codes everywhere and part like suspension shocks are several thousand themselves. The reason its 30k is because you will need another 30k to maintain the thing.
