2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 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).


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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


Review

This is the car everyone wants with
good reason. Prior to taking delivery
of my SL55, I drove a Honda S2000 (fun
but very basic) and a 2003 SLK32 (too
small, horrible steering response).
Even with a weight of over two tons,
the SL55's 493 horses will pin you to
your seatback while surounding you with
every conceivable luxury appointment. I
drove SL55's at the Homestead-Miami
Speedway in June's AMG Challenge, just
to see what this beast could do when
fully unleashed. What a rush! Not your
typical no-frills sports car, but a lot
more fun to drive!


Best Features

Watching the retractable hardtop, the High-Low beam HID headlights, and, of course, the amazing horsepower and torque!


Worst Features

Don't destroy the looks by giving it the new SLK / SLR front-end treatment.
