2000 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible SL500 2dr Convertible


Review

Buying this car 16 year old car has been a joy. It turns heads, drives like a dream, corners likes its on rails, and the speed -- well it's breathtaking. Went out early one morning to the turnpike with the top down and my wife reading emails in the passenger seat. Got it to 105 and she didn't notice. Just a little stretch of the legs for this rocket. I'm 6' 4" and it's one the of few cars in which I'm really comfortable. Maintenance is expected and keeps her running great.

Review

I love my Mercedes, the fact that you can go from hard top to soft top in a few easy minutes. There is room for a couple of bags in the back "seat", unlike other sports cars where you don't even have room for a purse. The ride is like sitting home in your livingroom. The gas mileage on mine is 30-32 mpg on a trip. It's an all around beautiful car. I am not an engineer, but I see no improving on perfection here. I have driven them all, I wanted to before I made an educated purchase and this was the only one standing at the end of the tests, all things considered, gas mileage, comfort, style, class.


Best Features

The back "seat" area. All the others, Audi TT, BMW Z3 or Z4,Porsche, etc, no room for anything else. This car leaves nothing to want. Still more room in the amazing trunk, I can take everything I need for a week or more.

Review

Amazing car all around...perfect mix of performance, comfort, convenience and luxury. Drives like no other car, with endless smooth V12 power on tap right under your right foot. Truly an amazing thoroughbred.


Best Features

Mostly that wonderful V12...but also the hardtop/convertible idea


Worst Features

Gas mileage is truly miserable...getting about 10 MPG so far. Also, limited interior storage.

Review

I have admired the Mercedes Roadster
since it was a 190SL. Finally decided
this was the time. I am not a sportscar
person. This car is a luxury car that
happens to look sporty. Perfect! Plenty
of power to spare and love the handling
on corners. Mercedes service has been
great!


Best Features

The powerful engine. Also the power top.


Worst Features

A more resliant back window.

Review

German solid engineering at its best.
This model superseeded in 1990 the
classic 106, which only lacked the
power top.
My car is 'Sport' version, It seems
bulky, in spite of its modest
dimensions. It is more of a luxury
convertible 2 seater limousine then a
nimble sports car.
Seats are better then most American
cars. Everything works with monotonous
regularity - it is not an exciting car
to drive, but to be seen in!


Best Features

Impressive looks and reliability- an old pair of good shoes.


Worst Features

Plastic rear window a disaster ! The model has been replaced by an overpriced, a little more lithe, inconspiquous looking technologically complex model.
