Overall:

The 2004 Mercedes SL500 is an exciting car to drive or just look at. I’m 6’2” tall and I have head room with the top closed. Some features are dated and require updating, mainly the radio for a better hands free experience and navigation, there are plenty of affordable options for this. The value is down because of the Active Body Control hydraulic system which scares people away, but there is now a coil over spring conversion kit which is cheaper then replacing 1 of the shock absorbers and eliminates the fear of a hydraulic issue stranding you on the side of the road.

Overall:

Unfortunately, the rating system is too generalized. If you are an average car buyer, this is a very challenging car to buy. Compared to its MSRP, it will be an excellent value because it was a well engineered, quality built car but is targeted for New car buyers who trust their dealer and warranty for any troubles you might have. Used, these are hard cars to buy because if you have a problem and cant fix it yourself, you have a world class problem (seems appropriate for a world class car). Ill mention 2 examples. The top and ABC (suspension) Both systems are a marvel, but are a complex, integrated systems and if one of the many interactions is not lined up or functioning properly, the top wornt work and will not work until someone finds where the problem is and fixes it. Just finding the problem can be complex, because there arent any top experts around, like there are brake specialists or radiator specialists. So the dealer turns it over to one of their techs who probably hasnt ever had one of these problems before and even if they have, the problem youre having with the top might be different than the one he fixed last time. The other nightmare issue is the hydraulic suspension. Its the Top problem times 4. This system is four times more complex than the top. (Dealer top repair $4000+. Suspension $500-11,000). If you can fix either of those two things yourself, these cars are the greatest car for the money, on earth. I recommend buying a car you are not going to be afraid of and in this case, ignorance is not bliss. Hope this helps.
