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


Review

Excellent car in everyway. I have been
driving Sls since 1975 and this
surpasses them all by a lot. It is a
great looking car and handles just as
well.Only thing missing is a sunglass
holder.


Best Features

Looks and performance


Worst Features

Needs sunglass holder

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


Review

the only problem I have found is with
the breaks that they have promissed
they will fix and the navigation needs
improvement. But at least it works;
unlike BMW 745 with a great NAV that
does not work 1/2 the time.


Best Features

hard top, sound, handling,


Worst Features

break, lumbar supprt button needs to be moved.

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


Review

More on road performance than you could
ever need on the open highway. This car
performs superbly at high speed.
Whether conering or racing down a
straight stretch of road this car will
amaze you. A luxury ride decieves you
as you gaze out the window thinking you
are travelling at maybe 2/3 your actual
speed. Slowing down is no problem given
the braking system on this vehicle. If
you want to make your drive as
enjoyable as possible you must own this
car.


Best Features

engine, brakes, seat massage and heater for my aching back, styling, cornering at speed

Review

I love this car, but the drivers
seatbelt starting acting up. I took it
in three times in two weeks with a
persistent and recurring problem.
Anyone out there had a similar
problem? How was it resolved? Anyone
out there with similar experiences at
Caliber? Could be the dealers service
personnel not trained sufficiently to
work on thee masterpieces.


Best Features

Mostly everything


Worst Features

Several minor irritations, like squeeky wheels (3 trips to fix that problem), a persistent seat belt (3 trips as of today) problem and at least 3 trips to the dealer to get anything fixed.

Review

I am 6'6" tall and always wanted a
convertible but could never fit. The
SL 500 gives me plenty of room. It
took a long time for dealers to realize
that tall people love convertables, but
it was worth the wait.
