SL 500
By F Scheckton on


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


Geat body style and excellent handling. It would be helpful if the trunk were an inch wider and deeper to accomodate two golf bags. Averaging 21.5 mpg. Negatives: Command system reliability. Navagation and sound system occasionally malfunctions. Sound system not up to par for a $100,000 vehicle. No fade control on sound system.

Best Features

Color trim, body style and handling. Ability to raise and lower chassis a must. Would like another inch in that regard. Fun to drive.

Worst Features

Better sound and command system. Fade control for sound system. 30 to 40 more horsepower in the base model. Slightly larger trunk.
