2008 Mercedes-Benz SL-ClassReview

Overall:

For the right buyer, these are 5 star cars. They are well engineered (understatement). Well executed with high quality materials and components. The challenge is that several of the systems are complex and exotic, which means, a major problem if there is an issue. The ABC suspension, the retractable top just to name two, can require long repair times and thousands of dollars (up to $11000 for the suspension) and no guarantee the repair fixed the actual problem. If a buyer can do the repairs, these are probably the best car you could find for the least invested. For the person that needs a shop to do repairs, well, I hope you have a strong heart and lots of money.

Overall:

One Amazing Automobile Nothing Compares — Mercedes out did their selves this time one amazing ride. Transmission is so smooth you can't feel it shift. Acceleration is instant not hurky jerky break your neck fast but put you in your seat rocket take off fast. Hardtop convertible can not be beat. The elegance of this car is breathtaking.

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

Pros: hard top convertible, makes you feel like a million bucks, V12 Twin turbo enough said!!!

Cons: have yet to find one :) not a family car lol

Purchased the car on Ebay and the buyer who won was not able to come up with the money so I emailed the buyer previously about the car and we came to a price that was acceptable. I would not usually buy an SL on line with out having it checked out. The car was spotless , low mileage so hopefully I will be happy with my ebay purchase. Second car I owned was a 2009 C-63 AMG - what a car however the wheels made the car so ruff riding I traded it in on a 2013 ML-350. The best SUV Mercedes has ever made in my opinion. I have also owned a 2007 GL450 , 1989 -SL , a 2005 Thunderbird with only 9.800 on it.
