It was a great ride but way over priced. It had a couple of oil leaks as well.

Sweet Convertible — I choose the Mercedes over Porsche 911 and Corvette Convertibles because of the built in hardtop. Other considerations were reliability & maintenance costs. I've only had it a day but I was impressed with all of the features it has and the build quality. Now that I've had the car almost a year I must say that I still really like it. I've had a couple costly repairs water pump & replaced engine mounts and the left rear air shock needed to be replaced. Not unusual for car this old. While the cargo capacity is not great you can get a lot more stuff in the trunk than you might think. I also like how almost all of the interior storage compartments lock. I wish that the interior was a little quieter but convertibles are never as quiet as coupes or sedans. I recently took a long trip (5,000 miles) and on the highway I averaged between 22-24 mpg at interstate speeds. Not bad. Acceleration and handling on this car are really good. Most people are surprised when I tell them this car is 11 years old. Lots of favorable comments when you are driving this.

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

Pros: Hardtop convertible.   Easy up & down.   Lots of storage areas in cockpit.   Heated/Cooled Seats, Luxury.

Cons: No Bluetooth, Gas Mileage could be better

Because you will get really good looking girls if you are intented to do so..

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

Great Bang For Your Buck ! — You never know how fun it is to drive until you try the SL. So many cool features, surprisingly good mpg on the freeway. Hard-top !!! you can't beat that. mine had the panoramic hard-top, can't beat that ! If you can afford one, just do it. Cheers !

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

Pros: The best car I've owned so far

Cons: None

It Looks Amazing. — stuff breaks-get a warranty. Mercedes Benz should bring back the "Orion blue" color, it's the best. Buy used, new is too expensive. Cup holders are annoying because they are in front of the nav. I love this car a lot.

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

Pros: You can put the roof down!

Cons: Stuff breaks

Overall:

Absolutely Beastly Yet Smooth And Gentle To Drive If You Wish — Superb acceleration 0-100 near 10 s. almost supercar performance; 0-60 4.3 in my hands. Speed drive shifting is a bit slow by modern standards. Drive it like a pussycat, it doesn't care. It is massively solid (but heavy) tight as an open-top can be and the hard top retractable roof is the best. Interior is spartan, utilitarian German, 2004 exterior styling far better than modern angular looks to me. Is expensive as it is thirsty yet on cruise control at 80 m.p.h. gets over 20.0. Very very fun to drive. BEst feature? Pass anyone any time (foolish amounts of torque - 516 of them).

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

Pros: Massive power, very enjoyable to drive many ways

Cons: Not for the untalented, transmission now dated
