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


Review

I had a 1998 500 SL before this one. I was never crazy about that car. It was bulky and difficult to drive. This one is sleek, attractive and lots of fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Hard top convertible

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


Review

Most responsive car I have ever driven. Acceleration is "seamless," with no hesitation at all. It corners like a race car. Taking curves is more fun than a straightaway.


Favorite Features

Capability of going from hardtop to convertible in 16 seconds is amazing. It can be done at a red light. Everything on the car is automatic. All the driver has to do is start the engine and GO!


Suggested Improvements

I cannot imagine what could be done to improve this car. I will keep mine forever.

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


Review

I ordered this car after 9/11 and waited un til I did not have to pay a premium (actually received the car in 10/02). A squeek took a few visits to fix, but M-B did "everything" to take care of it. It is a dream to drive -- hard to believe it is so firm, even with the top down. Absolutely no cowl shake. A real looker.


Favorite Features

Perfect fit. Style. Hard-top convertible.


Suggested Improvements

Cannot safely use the cup holders on dash (coffee/soda will spill on car). The CD based navigation system is dated. I am looking at 2005 SL55 and SL600, for more power, even though SL500 has plenty.
