2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500 - UNRELIABLE

ReviewWell, here we go. I bought my SL500 in
March of '04 and immediately the top
failed. It was recalled for brakes in
June. Its transmission failed and had to be
replaced in October. Rains came in
November and the trunk/top leaked. The
dealer assured me that this was an
"isolated" incident. Unfortunately it
happened to me. They had to replace the trunk
hinges. I have never owned a car that had
trunk hinges fail, have you? Also, its brakes are
really wierd, no feel. I thought I was
buying Germany's best, but alas I
bought a Plymouth with a three pointed
star on the hood. What a shame. That
star use to mean something.
Best FeaturesStyling. Interior design. Performance.
Worst FeaturesTake charge and become the auto manufacturer you once were. The car is so technologically advanced that unfortunately Murphy has fun with this one. I am very dissapointed with the quality of this car.
