Truly the best engineered car I have
owned. It is my 4th SL. The
convertible hard-top also has a glass
panoramic roof. Highway mileage is
nearly 23 miles per gallon at 8o mph.
The ride firmness is adjustible for
Sunday comfort or serious cornering.
Very quiet with the top down, which is
as often as possible
15 seconds from hard top to
convertible. Superb sound system.
Ventilated and massaging seats.
Beautiful burl walnut wood accents.
Plenty of power with good fuel economy.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this car. Have owned 3 BMWs and Alfa Romeo Spider, the last year in the US and on and on and there is nothing like the head turning luxury and performance that you find in this automobile. I am amazed every time some kid pulls up next to me on the highway in some souped up car at how much guts this car has on the open road. Sounds good, and I've literally gotten standing ovations when the top goes down in all its glory!
Beautiful car that gets a lot of looks. Fit and finish are right on par with what you would expect from a Mercedes. We have had many problems with the quality of this car: Broken interior panels, faulty anti-lock relay, faulty anti-lock brake pump, broken baffles inside gas tank (had to replace gas tank!). Now the ignition system has just failed. 53,250 miles, and many rented loaners. We are glad to have bought the extended warranty.
Navigation system! The cup holders need to be moved, they block the navigation-radio controls when they are used.
