2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible SL600 2dr Convertible (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This is a great car and my second SL, the other is an 1994 SL500 and it is also a great car. the difference in eleven years is astounding. the 05 has every available option except heated steering wheel, it was a CA car. amazed at the MPG on freeway, went to Cleveland a week ago, about 100 mi with 90 on I71, the goofy thing indicated 24.6 MPG!! used the distronic, I thought that would be joke, nope, it is great touched the brake/throttle once in 90 freeway miles. speed was set at 70(this is Ohio)we have a unique way of collecting road tax here. The push in the seat is addictive, another 100 hp would not make much difference, would be interesting to see another 400 hp.


Best Features

twin turbo intercooled V12, wonderful engines, V12s have perfect primary and secondary balance.


Worst Features

only possible complaint is a very slight turbo lag, it is not much but it is there. A blower is instantaneous but eats power to twist them

Review

Is it a coupe or is it a convertible? It is both and the best ever of each. After 4700 mi. I am a happy camper. It is safe, it is solid, and it is beautiful. If I put my foot into it, it is faster than my Viper. If i don't, it gets the same mileage as my Lexus. If you can afford it, this car is the true pinnacle of design and performance.


Best Features

Drop top hardtop, drivetrain, design, voice control, leather everywhere, seats-adjustable-cooled-heated, and massage. smooth delivery of mind boggling power

Review

I was given my car as a HS grad gift. I
am going to college now and it just so
happens that I got a great garage park
so I do not have to worry about
my "baby"! Always cranks on 1st try ,
even if I've been cramming for exams
and have not driven it for a day or
two. I don't mind the looks either!


Best Features

style


Worst Features

seats a little cushier
