6 Things You Need to Know about Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG

  • The Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG released an F1 Limited Edition, which became the world's first ever roadgoing vehiCLe that comes equipped with an ultra-high-performance ceramic braking system.

  • This coupe graced Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 when the game was released in 2002. This highly favored racing game features the Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG as a tier four car while it CLassifies as a CLass E car in the PlayStation 2 release. In the game, the CL55 AMG runs on a 5.4-liter V8 engine with a maximum speed of 155 mph. Because of its ability to speed up really fast, this coupe is considered to be among the most durable cars for the game.

  • The German automaker agreed with Motor Trend to alter the CL55 AMG to make it run at higher speeds. But if you're wondering why you never saw the model in the market with a maximum speed higher than 155 mph, that's because this was solely made for a CLosed-course event to check the fastest speed all the ten cars can make. Mercedes Benz surely knows that its CL55 AMG can outrun its set speed limit.

  • If you're not familiar with the capabilities of the CL55 AMG, better know that it can reach 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds! But sadly, you can only drive at 155 mph tops.

  • Even if the Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG is no longer in production, you can still get yourself one from the stores. Well, that's if you're fine with a red or blue 1:64 scaled CL55 AMG die-cast toy car from Hot Wheels. The popular brand under the American toymaker Mattel introduced their version of the CL55 AMG in 2004 as part of the Whips series. This toy car comes in four paint colors-spectraflame blue, metalflake silver, spectraflame red, and metalflake black-and is sure to be a great addition to your collection.

  • If ever you get tired of how your CL55 AMG looks, you can just simply choose to upgrade it with the designo package. This upgrade will give your coupe a more luxurious feel from the paint, the leather, the trims, and other extras that will surely level up your car. So if you think your car is such a bore, you can easily transform it to a scene stealer with this exCLusive package.

  • Some of the Common Issues Faced by the Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG

    17 January 2013

    Although the Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG is a sleek-looking coupe with high-performance capabilities, it still suffers from a few hardware problems. That's why it's important that car owners should know some of these issues as they may experience problems as their cars age.


    Active Body Control System

    One of the problems that give car owners a headache is the faulty Active Body Control System, which makes the car uneven and poses risks of leakage. Reports have been filed that the CL55 AMG would sometimes be too high or too low, and most of the time, it would lean on one side only. When this happens, mechanics would just replace the hose, sensors, and struts, but the problem would still continue to persist. But besides this, the Active Body Control System also has a leaking hose. This has become such a serious matter that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ordered the German automaker in 2007 to recall more than 19,000 units from 2001 to 2004 as risk of fire is too high.


    Engine

    The sensors on the engine of the CL55 AMG seem to be prone to malfunction. Car owners would have to deal with a stalling engine from time to time and would even experience a no-start condition. If this problem happens, fixing the crankshaft position sensor should be able to stop this discomfort. However, another sensor-the oil sensor-is also known to fail on this model. In fact, you may have oil leaking through the seal on your oil sensor. Replacing the lower oil pan is believed to stop this problem, though.


    Heater and air conditioning system fan

    Mercedes Benz made another recall in 2004 after a malfunctioning fan was found to be a source of a high-risk problem. If this isn't solved immediately, drivers may find themselves in a road accident as the windshield may be covered with fog and frost due to a broken fan. It was found out that the blower motor loses power after the plastic holder that holds the fuse in place breaks, disconnecting the fuse from the circuit. Because of this, about 54,000 units were recalled to have their system checked.
