Wish I Had Always Owned This Car (i Started Driving In 1965). — Of all of the cars I have owned, the performance, looks and fun factor are all contained in the 1994 Mercedes SL500. It is a solid car with no squeaks or rattles. It averages about 20 mpg, which is it's only down side (especially since it requires Chevron's top gas). Maintenance is limited to oil changes, which are pricey, but with synthetic oil, lasts for 7,000 miles. With a removable hard top, this car rocks! It is also extremely safe because of its speed (easy to get out of tight jams) and handling.

It's My Toy! - Girls Need Toys Just Like Boys Need Toys. — The car is absolutely wonderful. It's beautiful, runs like the wind and oozes with grace and elegance. Requiring premium gas and a top mechanic for everything, it's not cheap to maintain, but for sheer delight and fun -it's the best ever.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Plenty of power and good handling for touring

Cons

Gas mileage leaves a good bit to be desired.
Repairs & maintenance relatively expensive, but it is an older Mercedes

Good Looking Classic Mercedes — Comfortable car to drive. Classic looks and enough power to keep you out of trouble. Great car for top down driving (except winter). Removeable hardtop for winter season. (But does take 2 to put on-take off.) Does require premium gas & mileage is not the best.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Enthusiast Specal — Body style is handsome and timeless. Handles tight corners with confidence and the removable hardtop to soft top versatility affords a rich driving experience. Resale value and prestige are both high. Driving the Mercedes 500SL is almost as much fun as owning one.

It Wont Bother You If The Stock Market's Up Or Down — you dont mind sitting at red lights in this car. doesnt make the loud music of its V8/V12 brothers but so what...it's the quiet samurai of the trio. more the personality of a rolls or bentley. I'm buying an old F150 to drive when it's raining so the SL stays dry.

A Beautiful And Powerful Road Machine — The 1992 Mercedes500SL Convertable Roadster is an awesome car to own. If you want heads to turn while you are passing by or at a stoplight,This is the car to own . Repairs can be pricy but if you can afford one ,it is a good investment.

Everything Major That Could/would Need Repair On This Vehicle Has Been Done By Qualified Mechanic — Ultimate Man Machine V-12....more power than able to use, legally that is... Have owned car since 1996. Also own 1978 SL-450 and am about to retire and want to start putting money into my first love, the 450.

Pros

Classic car, generating sympathies wherever you go. This car is not a used car, it's an investment.

Cons

It really shouldn't be driven everyday - it could, but it definetly shouldn't.

A Classic Mercedes - What Can Be Or Go Wrong — Fantastic car, never ever feeling its age (>20 years!). A rather performing engine, this would probably be the last built by engineers and perfectionists rather than accountants. Absolutely gorgeous, but never pretentious. You won't feel out of place no matter where you take it.
