500SL Review
By Thomas Fillingim on


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


After owning 2 other 500SL's, I can say that Mercedes finally got it right. The balance between luxury and sport is magnificent. I do not feel like I'm riding on a truck chassis in the 2005 model. In the previous SL's I did. This car is luxury. Comfortable, yet very tight in terms of handling. It truly hugs the road while giving the feeling of being in a luxury automobile. The interior and exterior lines of the vehicle are very well thought out. It is a very classy automobile.

Best Features

Seat comfort and massage mechanism that comes in the comfort package. The ability to shift from luxury to sport suspension with the push of a button.

Worst Features

Electronics memory loss after setting programs for certain functions. Once set they should remain in memory.
