Nice but still unreliable
By Robb on


2006 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


To purchase a 100+k car, you would think that it would be devoid of cheap plastics. Think again. I'm also hearing fluctuations in the engine idle already, and I haven't broken 7K miles yet. Yes, it's still the status symbol to have, but one that is not as well put together as I'd hoped. I'm going back to the SC430 before I take an even bigger hit with depreciation. If I listen quietly enough, I can hear the dollar bills dripping under the car.

Best Features

The performance,design, and yes (the status).

Worst Features

Better workmanship and higher quality of interior materials.
