Mercedes CLS Reliability
When it comes to Mercedes Benz, proper maintenance is critical to its long term reliability and longevity. If well maintained, the CLS can run for years without problems but if you skimp on maintenance, things can get nasty. The CLS is an advanced car with lots of electronics and sensors that control pretty much everything from simple tasks such as turning on wipers to complex tasks such as monitoring lane activity and blind spots. If something goes wrong with these sensors and this usually happens if the car is poorly maintained, the consequences can be serious and costly.
