2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL550 2dr Convertible (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Run away from Mercedes, it is a poorly designed car that uses expensive parts of poor quality. This car reminds me of the mid 70's junk that Detroit put out. Dumped the car. Avoid Mercedes and buy an Audi, Ford or anything else

2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL63 AMG 2dr Convertible (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I own a 2011 SL63 AMG. This is probably the best SL63 that MB has ever made. Terrific handling and performance. Lots of power for a thrilling driving experience. I strongly recommend the car. This car is a beast for the right driver but can also become a cruiser if you switch it to the settings for that. It has been very reliable for the most part. If you're looking for a luxury muscle car that can do it all, it would be hard to match this car. Definitely a nice machine..

Review

Purchased new, and as an everyday driver, we've logged 18k. The car's excellence is diminished only by a few ergonomic issues. The heat controls for the seats are mounted on the door, making it impossible to adjust without taking your eyes off the road, and don't get me talking about programming the GPS! It has an outdated feel -
My mobile phone is much better! The drivetrain shifts smoothly, and the engine
delivers the perfect combination of torque and horsepower.
If the interior design falls behind the outstanding engineering of the rest of the car.


Best Features

Build quality, handling , ride quality - the adjustable suspension delivers a smooth ride when cruising, but firms nicely up with spirited driving. The engine has been reliable and gets good gas mileage for a high output V8


Worst Features

Just do away with lame GPS, and incorporate an interface for my iPhone's better performing GPS
