Overall:

One Of Merecedes Best Modern Convertibles. — For ten years (since 2004) this has been my summer joy. The 1998 SL500 is a classic Mercedes luxury convertible, comfortable and reliable enough for a summer cross-country expedition. What a joy to jaunt through the mountains in fall weather with the top down and the seat heaters on!

Pros: Very powerful, classic Mercedes convertible with rock solid 5.0L engine and indestructible transmission.

Cons: The price you pay for all that power (5.0L V8 and ~315bhp) is gas economy, but it still gets about 22MPG for me on the highway.
