Pros

sleek lines, great suspension - comfortable- love the convertible top mechanics.

Cons

really low front end; replaced 3 times due to hitting curb or cement parking block.  Can't even hear it when I "catch" a curb, until I back out.

Astonishing Car. — an astonishing car. Mechanical quality is above average and in no apparent way comparable to the american "built to break" manufacturing philosophy. Cost of ownership can be managed through use of other mechanic (qualified) for non-warranty items. Appearance is unique and and perhaps understated in an elegant way.

2006 Mercedes Benz Sl500 — The styling is so unique. The convertible hardtop give you the best of a coupe and drop top sports car. I live in Louisiana and the weather changes quite often. It is so nice to have the convertible hardtop function in such a user friendly way. If I need to raise or lower the top it operates with the touch of a switch.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Awesome — Love the car and is handles great. Classic MB design that just looks great. They have not really done much to the design in 12 years and the car still looks great. Almost impossible to tell a 2000 model from a 2012 model if you don't know a lot about the SL500.

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

Speed, Looks, Luxury/comfort, can look unassuming…

Cons

Reliability, automatic transmission (5 spd)

110+ In 3rd Gear — This car was another one that I had for about 10 minutes. It was awesome. It was amazingly fast and just beautiful. It was pulling so hard at 100 that I had no idea I was going that fast. I still couldn't breathe. A couple issues with this one… It's an automatic… yes it does and can come with a F1 style manumatic, but, its an auto nonetheless… the other issue is… the guy who actually owned the car had the supercharger go out when the car had about 700 miles… Mercedes replaced it with no questions asked… but not a great start.

What A Car! — This vehicle truely defines why Mercedes Benz is one of the pioneers in the automoblie industry. This engine is very beefy and still growls at low rpms. This car is a freaken savage! This has so much torque that when your driving a 40 mph and floor it, it burns rubber. Thats I why I love German cars.
