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.

Pros

Built like a vault.

Cons

0-60 in 6.1 secs is not enough these days

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.

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

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.

Pros

Versatile, fast, smooth, beautiful timeless styling, reliable, quiet, comfortable, good mileage if you drive nice, plenty of room in the trunk and behind seats for luggage or groceries.

Cons

Drinks a lot of premium gas if you drive fast, only 2 seats, a stiffer ride, expensive (but worth it!)

Fast, Classy, Versatile And Beautiful — It's a great car that turns heads. It corners extremely fast, and is luxuriously comfortable. My wife and I couldn't agree on a convertible that we both loved until we drove the SL500. I wanted safety and the nice hardtop for the winter is a big plus. She just wanted anything with a top that dropped, but didn't realize how much difference a good fitting quiet top and a safe (and Quick!!)car makes when compared to a Sebring or some other twisty little cheap tin box.
