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


Review

Flawless performance. Beautiful styling in and out. It looks exactly the way it performs. Responds instantly to accelerator. Can easily get ahead of other vehicles and into clear road ahead. Handling is superb. Does not lean or sway. Beautifully takes curves with ease. Quintessential sports car. Wish it had more cabin storage, and that it had a better gas mileage.


Favorite Features

Body styling. Acceleration. Sports handling, especially around curves.


Suggested Improvements

More cabin storage. Better gas mileage but not at the expense of performance.

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.

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.
