2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

I am an avid exotic automobile collector and enthusiast. Out of all the Mercedes and Ferrari's I have ever owned, this is by far the most exhilarating experience. I would even put it ahead of my Ferrari 940. It is a very powerful yet nimble and handles like the tires are glued to the pavement. I would definitely recommend this to a serious car enthousiast if they are considering maybe for one of the Italian competitors.


Favorite Features

The stance is very stark and yet very refined. Its a very elegant car that reminds me of the older Lamborgini's.


Suggested Improvements

It would be neat to have a gullwing version of this car. It seems like the Germans have hit all the bases on this one. It needs no real improvements. It has it all.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

I'm very pleased with my investment, and I suggest others to test drive this model. It may seem like a waste of money, but if you are like me, you'd rather pay an extra amount of money to get something you can rely on. The average person spends this much in fixing their car for the lifetime of their car, which is, on average, 6 years. I've had my other Mercedes for about 6.5 years. I had to get it fixed once throughout that time due to a fender-bender. I plan on the same level of reliability on my new Mercedes.


Suggested Improvements

None

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

The 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR is hard to start and runs very rough. The front end shakes at about 60 miles per hour. I bought it for my wife but she will not drive it because it stalls all the time.


Favorite Features

It looks good.


Suggested Improvements

The list is a mile long, it needs everything changed. It is the worst car that I have ever owned.
