2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


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.
