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


Review

Excellent handling with lots of power. Navigation system to complicated especially for my wife. So far the car has been problem free


Best Features

Styling of the car and the advanced safety features


Worst Features

DVD navigation system. Shouldn't have to change the CD 3 times between Oklahoma and California. Also, the CD player should be mounted in the dash.

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


Review

It is not noisey, it drives very smooth with sports override if you want, great brakes and easy to put top down. Mercedes has honored their commitment to send someone out if you have a problem. I had a flat and someone came within 20 minutes. Best car I have ever owned from Mercedes.


Best Features

Brakes, GPS, electric seat adjustments, stereo sound, ease of lowering and putting up the top.


Worst Features

Car needs to be higher off the ground.

Review

I have had excellent experience with the car. It's styling and design is the best there is. It has plenty of power and the use of the top is easy. The computer controls take some time getting used to and the navigation is not easy to use. It's fuel economy is what I expected, but is not great. Technolically, it has everything.


Best Features

Changing convertible top in 17 seconds Great engine Voice controls Pulse


Worst Features

Upgrade navigation Trunk is a little tight
