Finally, a happy wife.
By B & L on


1998 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible


I have purchased MANY cars for my wife in hopes that she would be happy with what she is driving. After 17 years, I finally found one that she refuses to even look at another kind of car. This is fun in the sun, and glamor all year round. This last year there was 18" of snow, once we got the car out of the drive, I was passing 4X4's and cruising down the road without issues. We get about 18mpg in town and 23mpg highway. Virtually no road noise with hardtop on who cares how much noise with the top down. Every time my wife gets in it, she tells me how much she loves her little car. Thank you MB

Best Features

Lots of power, good mpg for the HP. Sticks to the road in rain, snow, or sun. So many safety features, while being so stylish.

Worst Features

The front skirt rubs every stinking curb, and when we back up, the cover for the tie down pops off. Embarrassing for such a classy car. Some of the interior parts are of a lower class plastic than a datsun. These are small things in the overall picture though.
