2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS: The Perils of Hand-Washing an SLS
September 19, 2013
While hand-washing our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS I found this defect. Take the jump to see what I'm talking about.
My trusted helper and I dried off the whole car before I popped the trunk to get back there. That's when water stored along the trunk lip dripped down onto the clean quarter-panel. Isn't that horrible?
If this were my personal car, this would just get added to the list of SLS idiosyncrasies. You know, the kind of quirks that fellow SLS owners joke about when they're standing around, talking SLS. They'd say, "No, you didn't." And I'd say, "Yes, I did." We would hold our bellies laughing. Then we would be reminded that we own quarter-million dollar supercars and wash them ourselves. And then, we would laugh some more.
