Great car, but...
By cricomac on


1991 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class 500SL 2dr Convertible


After three years, I still LOVE this car, but... Every time I take it on the road I'm in fear of the impending break- the-bank repair. Depreciation continues at a precipitous rate. Nonetheless, it has been among the most reliable, best performing and better looking cars I've ever owned. Initial purchase price has dropped to where us "ordinary" folk can afford the car; it still takes VERY deep pockets to keep it on the road.

Best Features

Styling, comfort for a roadster, performance at highway speed (pass anything in the blink of an eye)

Worst Features

The car is already 15 years old -- what's to improve? A transmission that starts in first instead of second would be nice, as would dealer service that didn't automatically add an extra zero to the price of any repair when they see you coming.
