I bought my SL2 w/ 71000 miles on it. It ran really well for a long time and was very reliable but then as it got older it started leaking oil (around 100K miles), the motorized seatbelts stopped working which made it tough to get it inspected, some of the interior in the car cracked, and if it got too cold outside (now I live in VA where we have just a few truly cold days a winter) it wouldn't start. It was good on gas, and even though it was a 4 cyl it still had pretty good power to it. I eventually just traded it in because it was just so old and it had a lot of minor problems and I got tired of paying to fix and tweak all these little things on it.
The exterior is sleek and the interior was nice too. I liked how the backseat opened to the trunk
No motorized seatbelts, leaks oil, alternators do not last, power steering was still difficult
