2003 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.5L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

This is it as far as high performance
convertibles go. I visited the AMG
factory in September, 2001, when they
were first testing these cars. After I
heard it drive past me, I knew I
wanted one. The sounds is amazing. I
love the look on people's faces when I
drive down the street and floor the
car. Call me juvenile? Sure but I have
a really big smile on my face
everytime. On top of all this, it is
gorgeous, comfortable, luxurious,
exclusive and did I mention fast?


Best Features

The engine sound.


Worst Features

$120 large is a lot of money for kicks.

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The nicest sportscar ive owned. The
ride is unbeliveable, the reserved
power is just centimeters away, and its
built by what i call oneof the best car
makers in the world.

Review

The concept was fabulous.The exterior
fabulous.The fun driving fabulous.
However it looses its appeal after the
9th time it is in for repairs within a
few months. It really lost its appeal
when the Designo edition $103,000 began
to smell. A pungent cat urine (as
described by dealer- I don't have a
cat) odor so foul it burned your eyes &
throat. Six months more of repairs and
interior replacements...it still
stinks. Numerous calls to the
manufacturer (because the dealer
CANNOT? do anything except let me BUY
my way out of the car) still no
response!


Best Features

The automatic windows that go up and down regardless of whether or not you want them to. (sometimes they don't go back up either)


Worst Features

An EPA certified gas mask makes a great accessory.
