Premium Price -Poor Quality?
By Beautiful, Quality on


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


Beautiful car that gets a lot of looks. Fit and finish are right on par with what you would expect from a Mercedes. We have had many problems with the quality of this car: Broken interior panels, faulty anti-lock relay, faulty anti-lock brake pump, broken baffles inside gas tank (had to replace gas tank!). Now the ignition system has just failed. 53,250 miles, and many rented loaners. We are glad to have bought the extended warranty.

Best Features

Styling, performance.

Worst Features

Navigation system! The cup holders need to be moved, they block the navigation-radio controls when they are used.
