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


Review

The SL500 is my dream car...and also my
nightmare. The car looks and drives
awesome. But I have had it 3 weeks and
it has been in the shop 3 times because
the front xenon headlight continues to
stop working...which makes it's
dangerous for night driving. The
service dept. has yet to figure out a
solution. But like a Jaguar, it looks
great SITTING in the garage!


Best Features

Retractable Hard Top is heavenly! Panoramic roof is brilliant.


Worst Features

Speakers are only located in the door, and not throughout the entire interior.

Review

I have had excellent experience with
the car. It's styling and design is the
best there is. It has plenty of power
and the use of the top is easy. The
computer controls take some time
getting used to and the navigation is
not easy to use. It's fuel economy is
what I expected, but is not great.
Technolically, it has everything.


Best Features

Changing convertible top in 17 seconds Great engine Voice controls Pulse


Worst Features

Upgrade navigation Trunk is a little tight
