Car takes 4-5 seconds to start

My family just bought a 2006 CLS 500 and I have to say it looks even better in person than in the magazines. But there are a few minor problems and one MAJOR problem. The MAJOR problem is that the car takes 4-5 seconds to start, and sometime it FAILS to start!! Has anyone else had this problem? If yes, what was the problem and did MB resolve the problem?

Dunno if this is related but my E class had a similar problem before when I first bought it. It had difficulty starting and sometimes it just fails to start and the problem was because the crankshaft sensor malfunctioned.

Cls 500 is leaning to left u can hear a whistling sound when rising

I just bought a preowned CLS 500 and recently noticed the same issue. Whistling after I start and stop the engine. "Car too low" notice if I hit a speed bump too fast. Etc.
I'm guessing it has something to do with a leak in the air suspension.

Did you ever resolve your problem?

2006 CLS 500 - Trunk won't open, 3rd light out, plate lights out.

CLS550 2010. Same complaint trunk won't open, third brake light and license plate lights not working. Two ground wires (Brown) were broken inside the bundle of wires right were the zip tie holds them to the trunk lid arm. When I first looked I missed them. Remove all the corrugated wire protection and look the wires over very closely. One of them was broken inside but the wire just looked kinked on the outside. The other was broken in too. 7/9/17
