2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

If you want a top notch car, with a great look, this is for you. Best car I've ever driven, including other MBZs and BMW. Definetely better than US made. May not manuver as well as a 911, but more practical and prestigous.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I bought this car for the styling, and it is a beautiful and sexy car. After driving it the past three weeks, I am happy with the overall features, comfort, and performance. It is not an economy car obviously, so plan on spending some gas money. Also the teleaid system seems pretty pricey ($260 a year, plus minute usage fees) for emergencies in which the air bags deploy, or for a concierge service.


Favorite Features

Keyless go option a big plus in which I basically never have to take the remote out of your pocket to gain entrance and start the car.


Suggested Improvements

DVD navigation system has a glitch. Unable to find 8 our of 10 addresses. Told that a revised DVD on the way for no charge. In car hands free telephone not available yet as $1500 option, can only have it installed after November for $2500.

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


Review

Faster than a ZO6, more luxurious than a Roll's, and is built with quality that made Mercedes famous. This is the best 2 door roadster/coupe on the market, period.


Favorite Features

Retractable hardtop, roll bars, style


Suggested Improvements

The only major fualt with this car is the plasement of the cupholders, right in front of the COMAND screen.
