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


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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

This is it as far as high performance convertibles go. I visited the AMG factory in September, 2001, when they were first testing these cars. After I heard it drive past me, I knew I wanted one. The sounds is amazing. I love the look on people's faces when I drive down the street and floor the car. Call me juvenile? Sure but I have a really big smile on my face everytime. On top of all this, it is gorgeous, comfortable, luxurious, exclusive and did I mention fast?


Favorite Features

The engine sound.


Suggested Improvements

$120 large is a lot of money for kicks.

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.
