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
It has the look and the feel of what a
$100,000 plus car should have for the
owner. Well worth the price.
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.
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.
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.
Stability control, convertible hardtop, beautiful
styling, inside and out.
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
