2003 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

German engineering has reached the ultimate level. The Mercedes 500 SL in the 2003 model comes as close to perfection as is possible. After driving this car for ten months, I believe that this is the finest car I've ever owned. Every aspect of the automobile is a thrill to look at and to drive. It has the look and the feel of what a $100,000 plus car should have for the owner. Well worth the price.


Best Features

The comfort of the seats and the feel of quality in driving it makes this vehicle a pure pleasure. It has more power than one will ever need; especially driving between 65 miles per hour and 130 miles per hour.


Worst Features

The only suggestion I have is to simplify the computer sensors that gauge the air pressure. The reset procedure should be made so that you don't have to take it back to the dealership to accomplish it.

Review

Everything a luxury sports car should be. The convertible hardtop is not only convenient, it's great fun! I can't leave the car without looking back at it, and I find any excuse to drive it. It's been flawless in performance and reliability. I can't praise it enough.


Best Features

Stability control, convertible hardtop, beautiful styling, inside and out.


Worst Features

Make seat side bolsters adjust in a wider range.

Review

This hi tech car does not have the bugs worked out yet. The new electronic brakes are not reliable. I ran into a car because the brakes would not work. MB sent someone to investigate but were unable to replicate so said drive it until it happens again! I am not their test dummy. Wait until they get the bugs out.

Review

The nicest sportscar ive owned. The ride is unbeliveable, the reserved power is just centimeters away, and its built by what i call oneof the best car makers in the world.
