2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Long-Term Road Test

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Fuel Economy Update for June

July 2, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The Month of May saw another 1,912 tacked on to our long-term Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster. The beast spent quite a bit of time at the dealer waiting for a repair to its top (again). Were it not for Riswick's trip to San Francisco, we would've only logged 1,200 miles or so. James also eked-out an impressive 415.9 miles on a single tank on that trip.

The SLS has not been a big hit with editors with kids and adult-ish responsibilities. Its two-seat cabin and small trunk are the culprits, no doubt. It might also be a little too brash for some, as well. Still, it's incredibly cool to have something like the SLS AMG at our disposal.
