Elegant Car, Timeless Styling
By So Cal Sam on
Vehicle2006 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
ReviewBesides the world class styling this car is also so smooth and powerful. The 302 hp engine and 7 speed automatic tranmission effortlessly propels the car down the road with such authority and grace. The convertible top works as advertised - a smooth mechanical ballet that takes you from quiet hardtop coupe to convertible in 16 seconds. The exterior and interior finish are well done and the entire feel of the car seems so tight and well engineered. The navigation system is easy to use and has a points of interest function that is very handy. The 2006 model year includes Sirius satellite radio as a no charge option and I'm finding it to be a real bonus - incredible amount of choice.
Best FeaturesKeyless Go Parktronic Comfort Package - includes ventilated seats (they really work), massage function, intricate control of seat comfort nad position. Trim Package - The wood trimmed steering wheel feels great on your hands and lends a first class feel to the interior.
Worst FeaturesI wish the A pillars, interior top and sunvisors were avaialble in Alcantara seude as an option. Only real complaint is that the sunvisors seem cheap for a car of this cost - odd place for the manufacturer to save money.
