I have owned my 1996 320 SL for for 4 years and 20,000 miles. I have never been more pleased with a car. Performance, reliability, etc. are superior. It gets 24 mpg. and is serviced by an after market shop. If I ever sell it, I will buy another.

This is my 5th Mercedes. Have had an
older 230SL, 2 diesels and my most
recent large sedan 300SE. Have sold my
300SE and Miata convertible and
combined the features of both in
SL320. This car is fun to drive, very
comfortable and quick (even though it
is only a large 6 cylinder). I got the
SL320 because it had the same engine as
Tweaked styling and new alloys freshen the exterior of the SL roadster. Underneath, ESP keeps drivers on track in lousy driving conditions. It comes standard on the SL600, and can be ordered for the SL320 and SL500. Side airbags are standard across the board. A five-speed automatic is included with SL500 and SL600. Cool gas-discharge headlamps are not available on the SL320.
