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


Review

Great trunk room for a hardtop
convertible. While great interior
room, week thigh support. Great
balance of sport and luxury ..... GT
touring. Need DVD based GPS. Good
road to steering wheel marriage.


Best Features

Tightness and heaviness of ride. Exclusivity, practical trunk with the top down. Can play golf or go away with the wife for a weekend with the top down and no special packing arrangements.


Worst Features

DVD based GPS.

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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.

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.


Best Features

STYLING, HANDLING, FEATURES, STATUS, EYE-CANDY ALL SUPERIOR. SOUND SYSTEM AND GPS SECOND-TO-NONE. CONVERTIBLE TOP IS MAGIC IN MOTION.


Worst Features

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.
