1992 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class Convertible 500SL 2dr Convertible


Review

I recently bought myself a second hand silver-grey '92 500SL Mercedes-Benz as my 'summer vehicle'. I already was a Mercedes fan (reliability) for some years, and since we have a '89 560SL in the family I knew it was a fun vehicle. Well, it sure is! I've been driving it for a couple of months now and I'm very, very impressed with the comfort it provides, especially for a (now) 11-year old car. Being 11 years old I reckon I will have some expenses to keep the car in optimum condition, but in contrast, the price of purchase was one-fifth of the original sticker price.


Best Features

The 5 liter - 8 cylinder - 320 HP engine combined with the way the auto-gear-shift is programmed makes for a great ride. I love the 'large displacement' feeling the car provides (in contrast with e.g. Porsche's or Ferrari's nervousness).


Worst Features

I reckon all the things I'd like to see improved have been improved already in the new SL500 model. But for now my '92 model provides everything I could wish for (and afford).

Review

Owned 95-02. Such a great car, hard to replace. Fun, beauty, sleek ride, great response in maneuverability and speed. Only thing I can really complain about is no cup holders and always spilling my drinks in the car.
