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


Review

An awesome machine. Had a 1998 SL500 and loved it. Amazing that Mercedes could improve on an almost perfect car.


Favorite Features

Hard top folding into trunk and doing it in 18 seconds.


Suggested Improvements

Comand system is awful. Mercedes should adopt the Lexus system.

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


Review

Its the most exciting car I have ever driven. People frequently roll down their window at stop lights to ask me questions about the car. I'm always more interested in taking it out if the weather is good enough to put down the top. I haven't had this much driving fun since the week I first received my driver's license (and that was 41 years ago).


Favorite Features

The top down and the power, which is even more fun with the 7 speed transmission.


Suggested Improvements

The navigation system is more trouble than it is worth, although when I have used it, I have been impressed with the accuracy of the gps.

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


Review

The AMG package makes this Benz a rocket. It is quiet and handles like a dream. This Benz is the best of the four that I have owned. Some quibble about limited trunk space. Name me a rocketship that does have a spacious trunk.


Favorite Features

It goes like hell. And corners like the big dogs.


Suggested Improvements

Air condition the seats...they are quite hot after sitting out in the sun for anytime at all.
