2009 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL63 AMG SL63 AMG 2dr Convertible (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


I was a big fan of Mercedes prior to owning my 2009 SL-63. After having it in the shop for now the 4th time in 5 months, they still can't fix the transmission and excessive oil burn. The new transmission slips like you've lost gears until the car is completely warmed up. Try pulling out into traffic, stepping on the gas and the engine revs, but the car goes nowhere. Then out of no-where, 3-5 sec later the car catapults you into traffic. I was finally told that this is a race- car. You can't expect it to drive like a luxury car. How about that? In addition to having to add a quart of oil every 100 miles Mercedes has some work to do before I would ever recommend this car. Spend elsewhere!

Best Features

The sound of the engine is inspiring. The engine is well tuned. With the exception of excessive oil burning the engine runs strong and sounds great. The suspension is well tuned and the vehicle handles like a charm. Get pas the transmission issues and the car performs as promised.

Worst Features

Get rid of the wet-clutch transmission. You can't sell a $150k+ vehicle and tell your buyers the rough transmission and stalling at start should be acceptable because this is a race-car. In addition figure out why the engines burn so much oil, one quart every 1000 miles. Come on Mercedes. Really
