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

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS Convertible: Convertible Top Failure

April 1, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS Convertible

It's happened again. I've signed up for a car in advance only find it broken and/or damaged on the day I plan to begin driving it. Hey, at least this time there are some hard parts to accompany the note.

These cables are among the small, important-looking bits that sprouted from the SLS's top when it failed yesterday. We'll be visiting the dealer next week. Meanwhile, the top can still be lowered and raised, as long as there are two patient people give it some help.
