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


Pro: Best car I ever owned. Real head turner. Myriad positive comments. Quiet, smooth ride. Solid body: no squeaks, rattles, groans, shakes, or shudders. Awesome, smooth power with great engine sound. I never brake for corners. Good trunk space. Cons: should come with all-season tires, not summer. Bose sound system mediocre: not much volume or bass. Lots of interior wood-trim not in-cluded and absurdly expensive on the aftermarket. No door- ding strips- standard on C class. Headlight and taillight trim rings are not included. Grille and louver fins painted grey instead of chrome plated. No chrome trim on bumpers. Wheels are painted instead of plated.

Best Features

Luxurious, smooth, quiet ride and performance. Awesome power with great engine sound. WOW factor. Solid body-construction. Great handling. Roof takes up very little trunk space. Many seat adjustments. Xenon headlights. Build quality and attention to detail. Sunroof and keyless GO. Teleaid.

Worst Features

Needs tilt steering-wheel. Nine-speed auto fan cycles annoyingly. Beef up Bose. For over $100K provide all interior wood-trim and door-ding strips. Chrome plate wheels, grille, and louver fins. Provide headlight and taillight trim rings. Use the same-size tires front and rear with
