Best GT car you can buy!!!
This car is simply amazing. From its 604 horsepower to its elegant and civil nature, this car offers it all. If you are looking for an all out performance car you wan to take to the track, the SL65 is not for you. This car is all about the everyday driving experience. The power is nothing short of incredible. The car does have trouble getting off the line cleanly, but its purpose is not to be a dragster. The power is best used for passing, and passing is does. Hanlding is plenty ample but nothing to get all that excited about. Creature comforts, build quality, and techno-gadgets are what you'd expect from a top-of-the-line Mercedes, but the COMAND system can be a bit intimidating at first.
Some disappointments. No regrets
The biggest disappointment is with lack of traction. You get on it with traction control off, and the tires spin. With ATC on, the car responds by actually coming to a halt right after take off. You nurse the pedal, and start wondering if you should have saved a few $K and bought a SL600. The convenience features controls are very inconvenient as one goes through the menues to change settings, etc. Also a few electrical problems with the convenience package: Driver's seat won't retract on exit. Car won't start easily if left parked for 2 or more days. "1-" or "2 Malfunctions, Convenience Functions Unavailable" is often displayed with no indications of the problem. Then corrects itself
This is a sweet drive. It is definitely a drifter. Hitting the pedal while turning will cause fishtailing as it it too powerful. Sometimes it feels like driving a bar of butter on a hot-plate. .. Backend is unruly until traction control kicks in (a second or 2). Otherwise, awsome car.
I love this car!
This is a awesome straight line monster. My wife and I love taking I- 95 and heading to Miami for any reason. The ability to pass anything at anytime is unbelievable. If you want a luxury performance vehicle, you can't beat the quality of the ride at the speeds of the best racing cars in the world.

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
