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


Review

nice car BUT if the top is down in the
daytime the baby blue lights disappear
from the dash board and all vital info
is lost. The GPS is a throw alway,
absolutly worthless. The top has come
apart with only 30 uses and the trim is
absolutly from K mart.
I have owned many MB's and if they only
spent a little more attention to
details and got that cheap plastic out
of the interior and exterior maybe
sl500 can make a come back. Just not
the car that it used to be and I still
had to spend $1.00 to get one of those
little mirrors to eliminate the blind
spot.


Best Features

nice looking, the rest is average. just a waste of $91,500.


Worst Features

recall and replace the dash lights, design a drivers side mirror without a blind spot. Buy your GPS from Lexus. Move the mirror switch and provide and off switch. Get rid of that stupid electric seat back. Put electric door closers on like the S class, better sound system...etc.

Review

Excellent handling with lots of power.
Navigation system to complicated
especially for my wife. So far the car
has been problem free


Best Features

Styling of the car and the advanced safety features


Worst Features

DVD navigation system. Shouldn't have to change the CD 3 times between Oklahoma and California. Also, the CD player should be mounted in the dash.

Review

It is not noisey, it drives very smooth
with sports override if you want, great
brakes and easy to put top down.
Mercedes has honored their commitment
to send someone out if you have a
problem. I had a flat and someone came
within 20 minutes. Best car I have
ever owned from Mercedes.


Best Features

Brakes, GPS, electric seat adjustments, stereo sound, ease of lowering and putting up the top.


Worst Features

Car needs to be higher off the ground.
