2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

An incredible driving machine with
superb mechanics. Unfortunately the
electronics are sadly dated (10yrs??).
Absolutely love driving the vehicle.
Most fun in an automobile in years.
Just wish Mercedes had looked at
Japanese and/or American makes to see
where todays electronics are. I have
spent more time studying the manual
than for all the many previous autos I
have owned,combined! Why does setting
radio presets have to be complicated??
Come on Mercedes make it a perfect auto
with updated electronics.


Best Features

The pure joy of driving the car. The very solid mechanics including the flawless opening and closing of the top.


Worst Features

UPDATE THE ELECTRONICS!!!

2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

The SL55AMG is by far the best car in the
world. It has then hard top convertible and
all the specifcations you can want. The only
poor thing is that you can't get in a the
charcoal colour. The interior is really
comfortable and it has a massage system
which is really relaxing.


Best Features

Hard top convertible. Interior is really nice.


Worst Features

charcoal colour is needed. Get rid of the SL 350

2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

This car is a delight to drive, and a
privilege to own. Superb handling,
outstanding styling, and a mechancial
marvel. I savor each and every
driving experience. In short, this
car is intoxicating.


Best Features

All the gizmos are amazing, but the best feature of this car is the smile it brings to everyone who sees it!


Worst Features

No satellite radio, old school navigation system, and it needs a "beefed" up sound system to match the performance of the car.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

After owning my SL500 for over a year,
I am still thrilled everytime I climb
in and drive away. Although I travel a
lot for business and don't get to drive
my car as much as many do, this car is
still the consumate sports car and gets
a second look from a lot of people.
All in all, the best ride I've ever had.


Worst Features

The 2004 still has the CD version for the GPS system which needs to be updated.
