Pros

Well-engineered, well-built, dependable, tight as a bank vault.

Cons

None really other than I have to keep it gassed up.

Great Car - — This is one of the best cars I have ever driven. It is tight, responsive, luxurious, well-built and well-engineered. I cannot wait to drive it each day. Getting behind the wheel put you into another zone, one of tranquility, power, and status. The engine is so quiet that it feels like it is not running and tapping the gas gets you quickly to a close to illegal speed. I have two other sports cars, Jaguars and without a doubt the SL is my favorite.

Fantastic, I Love The Way It Handles And It Can Get Out Of It's Own Way Quickly — Design & styling is great, speed and handling are best features. Down side is repairs are becoming more frequent and costly. Just bought 4 tires, over $1k for them and the worst part is performance tires are only rated for 40-45k miles and I'm sure your aware, you don't get anywhere near that many miles from them. Doesn't matter, I love this car.

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

Last Of The Engineers' Mercedes — Great car, possibly a future classic. Lovely build quality. Not just for jaded housewives. Great color. Everyone loves to watch the top mechanism work its magic. V-8 makes the right noises without the thrashing sounds of a lesser car.

Class And Good Looks. The Car Says It All. Quick In Acceleration And Drives Like A Dream. — I love this car...this is my second Mercedes SL and I would not want to own any other model or car. This car is in a class of its own. The car says it all. If you ever drive one, you won't rest until you own one. Thereafter, it is Mercedes forever. Love my car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Fast,solid,totally Classy — exceptional handling,steering,acceleration.Very quiet until you hit 6000 rpm,then it sounds like a symphony of power. Love the shifting options and the extra push buttons for handling,traction and sport driving. Looks as classy as the new ones.

Great Car For The Price By sfdjdave
