Pros: "This car can often be found with fewer than 60K mi"

Cons: "Expensive to repair, drive, house, maintain."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car is not economical or about "common sense" at any level. It's about enjoying the ride. Glancing over at your reflection in a plate glass window as you're driving and admiring that classic body look. It's about getting shocking repair bills for the most minor things and being over charged for nearly everything. If it costs $100 for a complete repair to your Honda, it will cost $500+ for the same repair to this vehicle, PLUS parts. Nice smooth acceleration, but get used to dropping a quarter tank of premium gas if you pass anyone on the freeway.Turning radius is very tight. Handles beautifully on curvy mountain roads. Our clothtop is brand new. Hardly any use."

"I have owned my SL now for 3 years, I haven't had any major problems with the car other than having to replace one of the hydrolic pumps for the top. Those pumps can be expensive, but isn't any trip to any dealer that way? Very fast, fun and reliable. This car is truly a great car. Even having a 93 model, I still get looks in it. I wouldn't hesitate in buying another one. If you've always wanted a mercedes and convertible, this is the one to buy."

"This 5 liter 300+hp 300lb torque little wolf in sheeps clothing will suprise everyone.Great ride, 50mph hard right turns,pop up rollbar,this tuff car will do it all.$80k new,if the center mirror is power,obviously it has everything available in 1990. And it's Mercedes best. Soft top power has a mind of its own,but it can be handeled manually.Great fun for $10-12K."
