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


Review

the only problem I have found is with the breaks that they have promissed they will fix and the navigation needs improvement. But at least it works; unlike BMW 745 with a great NAV that does not work 1/2 the time.


Best Features

hard top, sound, handling,


Worst Features

break, lumbar supprt button needs to be moved.

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


Review

More on road performance than you could ever need on the open highway. This car performs superbly at high speed. Whether conering or racing down a straight stretch of road this car will amaze you. A luxury ride decieves you as you gaze out the window thinking you are travelling at maybe 2/3 your actual speed. Slowing down is no problem given the braking system on this vehicle. If you want to make your drive as enjoyable as possible you must own this car.


Best Features

engine, brakes, seat massage and heater for my aching back, styling, cornering at speed

Review

I love this car, but the drivers seatbelt starting acting up. I took it in three times in two weeks with a persistent and recurring problem. Anyone out there had a similar problem? How was it resolved? Anyone out there with similar experiences at Caliber? Could be the dealers service personnel not trained sufficiently to work on thee masterpieces.


Best Features

Mostly everything


Worst Features

Several minor irritations, like squeeky wheels (3 trips to fix that problem), a persistent seat belt (3 trips as of today) problem and at least 3 trips to the dealer to get anything fixed.

Review

I am 6'6" tall and always wanted a convertible but could never fit. The SL 500 gives me plenty of room. It took a long time for dealers to realize that tall people love convertables, but it was worth the wait.

Review

It is absolutely the best car I have ever owned and I've owned almost 60 cars. this is one that I will never get rid of. It's stying, handling and performance leaves all the other cars in the dust.


Best Features

Love ALL the features.


Worst Features

You can't improve upon perfection.
