2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Every red blooded American male dreams about owning a car like this. It is sexy, stylish and extremely powerful. I have the limited edition Designo sports model. It turns heads and stops traffic where ever I go. It doesn't get any better than this.

Review

I LOVE THIS CAR. I HATE THIS CAR. EVERYTHING IS GREAT EXCEPT BUILD QUALITY AND RELIABILITY. DEALER REPLACED TRANSMISSION AT 1,300 MILES. BRAKES (Sensotronic) STILL DON'T WORK CORRECTLY. DEALER SERVICE IS APPALING. M/B CUSTOMER SERVICE (Montvale, NJ) IS RUDE AND UNHELPFUL. TRYING TO INVOKE MY RIGHTS UNDER NYS LEMON LAW SEEMS FUTILE. MY 4th M/B SL AND MY LAST.


Favorite Features

STYLING, HANDLING, FEATURES, STATUS, EYE-CANDY ALL SUPERIOR. SOUND SYSTEM AND GPS SECOND-TO-NONE. CONVERTIBLE TOP IS MAGIC IN MOTION.


Suggested Improvements

MANY PEOPLE SAY THAT M/B HAS HAD SEVERE SLIPPAGE IN QUALITY. I MUST AGREE. THE MAJOR SYSTEMS FAILURES IN A VEHICLE OF THIS CALIBER AND PRICE ARE SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

I have had every make of car there is over the years. Ferrari, BMW,Mercedes, Porsche.etc., but nothing as fun to drive as this SL55AMG. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a 12. Solid, incredibly quick, comfortable, yet a cat on the road.I have yet to find a single thing to dislike. Great job Mercedes, keep the new innovations coming.


Favorite Features

Steering, suspension,,seats, looks and power


Suggested Improvements

Tires that would allow the car to exercise it's capabilities

Review

I love the ride. The car gets so much attention from other drivers, so be warned this car is a head turner! The engine is amazing when put into manual. Love it!


Suggested Improvements

Mercedes really needs to improve the navigation. The navi would be better off touch screen, larger screen, and should able to show the names of the streets around the car, which it does not.
