Amazing to drive & horrific to own
By Richard Hill on
Vehicle2003 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewI have owned over twenty Mercedes and this has been the most exciting to drive and yet the worst for reliability. The quality of the cabin components are cheap and tacky and a disgrace to the badge and the electronics are a complete nightmare. I cannot trust any of the onboard warning systems and my repair bills to try and get them sorted is like paying off the national debt. The depreciation on this vehicle has been alarming and I am so disappointed that this will probably be the last Mercedes Benz I will purchase.
Best FeaturesWonderful concept and design and the adrenalin burst from the performance is intoxicating.
Worst FeaturesMercedes should go to Japan and learn about electronics and internal finish.
