2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 2dr Convertible (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

$160,000 new. Value now is 75% off but car is still shockingly fun and sophisticated. 2005 era was best looking SL, before M-B squared off front to protect pedestrians ankles. Find one, drive it and you’ll buy it.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL65 AMG 2dr Convertible (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

SL65 AMG is an amazing vehicle. Almost unbelievably fast and very comfortable. Maintenance is a little pricey as with most German cars, but kept well maintained, it is a reliable supercar.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Take it to a Mercedes dealer and have the car inspected before you buy from a off brand dealer!!!!!!!!! My problem was with the dealer. I would tell anyone, not to buy a car from them. The dealer has no clue on the up keep of the vehicles and will not go out of his way to help you fix the problem!!!!! Edmunds, made a point to make sure i didn't get my gas card!!!!!

Review

I purchased my SL55 AMG in Feb of 2010.
The bad... had to repair air suspension on front and back.
The good... MB significantly reduced the cost of the repair.
The excitement of most new car purchases ware off in a month or so.
Not this car.
I look forward to driving this car every day.
Performance is very good, looks are great with top up or down.
I can't belive how well it handles based on the weight being over 4,300 lbs.
It goes where ever you point it with plenty of power on tap.
It is a shame this care does not come with a license to speed.
Pay the extra cost for the AMG.
It is definately worth it.


Best Features

Strong engine, great exterior and interior syling. Great comfort.


Worst Features

Based on new prices, they should use technology that helps reduce weight. Radio should integrate with iPods however they may have addressed this on new cars.

Review

Great car..if you lie performance in a good looking package, then this is your car. i upgraded my heat exchanger, intercooler pump, and my crank shaft pulley to really make the car a BEAST!!! you can easily add an ECU upgrade and make this car a monster to drive! have fun


Best Features

everything


Worst Features

improve cooling components, heat exchanger, intercooler pump..pump goes out, and it will cut into your performance after several rounds of hard driving.
