Follow up to my review of buying a 66k used SLS in 2006. I am getting 32mpg on 300 mile highway trips. I now have 108,000 miles only issues since 66k is a blown speaker, new aftermarket front struts ($400) and a coil pack ($500). I am getting a little bored with the car but I still love the great highway MPG's and climate control that is so easy to use. This car eats up the miles. I am still happy.
Long legged top gear 2000rpm at 72mph. Seat and tilt tele steering wheel. Sound deadening... it's pretty quiet. Don't even notice the engine until it revs. past 4000rpm (seldom does/needed)
Suspension longevity switched to non OEM front struts at 100,000 miles when one strut lost it's oil. OEM replacemtns $3000, non OEM replacements $400.
