2007 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL550 2dr Convertible (5.5L 8cyl 7A)

Review

Due to its active suspension (ABC) it can cruise like a S-class but it stiffens up for almost no lean in the fun twistees and corners-Amazing! The transmission senses when you need punch and adjusts to your driving style by the second-a great feature since your driving reactions can be so dynamic in today's crazy traffic. You can adjust the way the car handles from comfort to sport (including ride height) with a push of a button. The 7 speed auto- transmission can also be changed from comfort to sport for that all-out sports car performance. Great V8 engine- very smooth but has incredible low range torque and all the power you might want.

Favorite Features

The hard-top lowered or raised in about 16 seconds. Very effective wind management with the top down.The articulating rear window rotates to snug up to the roof maintaining over 7 cu/ft of storage in the trunk. The trunk is pretty large with the top up with over 10 cu/ft + 6 more behind the seats.

Suggested Improvements

Nav is good but not among the best, same with the sound system. The COMAND system is well integrated but the individual functions (audio, nav, telephone,etc)can be complex. It takes a little time with the manual but they do work reliably so far.
