I have owned my SL55 for just 9 months
and have had 4 different problems
requiring dealer service from the top
not closing completely, to a failed
electronic display module, et al. I am
disappointed at the low end torque - my
2000 E55 was every bit as good.
Cornering is far from "Porsche like"
and the car is much too loud when you
accelerate heavily. As in all MB's
the sound system is just OK. The whole
package should be better for $125k
large. Killer looks and thats about
it. This is my 7th MB and likely my
Styling and metal top retractable roof.
Better steering feel, better sound
system, quieter upon acceleration, more
low end torque. Paddle shifters should
be fixed on column, not on steering
