"This car (Mercedes Benz 500 SLR) is an excellent two seater, great handling and performance. This vehicle is very reliable and requires only routine maintenance. I would strongly recommend this car to anyone who would like a powerful, fast car with excellent handling and cornering ability. This car rides a little stiff, but thats expected for this type of sports car."

"Bopught at 60K miles. Looked and drove like a showroom car. No wear, no imperfectrons. a dream to drive. Having tons of fun with it, but only driving a little as I want to keep this beauty looking new for a long, long time. Lines are clasic and distinctive. There is no other car like. Acceleration is straight and agile. Handling is superb. Everything works pefectly. Looking for many wears of babying this fine automobile"

"I bought a clean pre-owned SL500 and I am so impressed...I have had alot of cars but this is this best car I have ever driven...the styling, smooth ride shifting acceleration...even the way the hard top roof goes into the trunk WITH suitcases in the trunk is a work of art. My wife mentioned today while I drove on the freeway with the top down...there was less noise than other cars we have even with the top down. Fast, smooth, reliable...this car is a keeper. I like everything about this car."

"You can drive it hard and fast like a true sports car or use it to cruise around town with equal satisfaction. Not only has it been the most reliable car I've ever owned, but it's also been the fastest and most comfortable. You get three cool cars for the money...1. soft top on looks better than ANY car with a soft top; 2. hard top on looks and feels like $100,000; 3. top-down...hardly any buffetting with the screen up. Finally, the depreciation is minimal, so it can almost count as an investment! You can't lose with the SL500!"

"What a joy to drive with the top down or up. Beautiful, stylish, comfortable, excellent handling and power. Best car I have had, a real and true car. Once you drive a SL500 you are hooked for life, never get tired or bored driving this beauty, just love it."

"Once you've driven one, you will be hooked for life. Best V8 ever made. The car has some things overengineered but not nearly as complicated and over the top as newer mercedes models are with newer features. You haven't lived until you own one of these."

"With the near 100,000.00 price tag, most owners properly maintained these cars. At ten and fifteen years old, the SL 500s can be found in almost pristine condition and at a fraction of their initial costs. A buyer is afforded the opportunity to own a quality German sports roadster at a smaller price than a new Kia or Hyundai."

"I've owned my '94 SL500 for 5 years, with relatively minor repairs, most due to some neglect by prior owner. MB Dealer's service & repairs are pricey, but that's one of the MB owner's conditions of ownership. Car is a rocket when you put pedal to metal at any speed.... corner's & hugs road at high speeds with remarkbly flat "lean" (regardless of it's weight). It doesn't drive like a BMW, but is smoother and more sedate... low road noise, smoother over the bumps. Plenty of luggage space, boot space (behind front seats) for 2 on a trip. Creature comforts galore, plenty of head and leg room for both driver and passenger (I'm 6'1"). Get's ~24 - 25 mpg on highway, 17 mpg in-town driving without being lead-footed accelerating from stops. Turning circle is one of MB's best features... tighter than a Civic's for example, so easy maneuverability in tight spaces. Sound system is terrific... Hard or softtop. With hardtop on you can't tell it's a convertable (noise-wise). With top down, using the optional windscreen attached and up, & window's up there's nearly no wind disturbance - wife's hair doesn't get mussed) ."

"I love this car, but have had many issues with the electronics, which shouldn't be a problem in a car that cost a $100,000. Everything that failed was under warranty, and was been taken care of by the dealer, but it's been in the shop several time s in the last year - problems with the retractable top motors, dash electronics, power door lock problems etc. Still, despite all the problems its a fun car to drive, and would recommend it to others."

"I have owned many sports cars but my SL55 is the best I have ever driven. With the top up it is as quite as a hardtop. Putting the top down takes seconds and fits perfectly into the trunk leaving room for my golf clubs. The AMG is very fast and smooth. Handling is superb--holding the road with complete confidence."

"I've always owned convertible Corvette's prior to my SL55 AMG, but there is really no comparison. The SL55 at 493hp is as fast as the Corvette and functions as a very quiet coupe or in 16 seconds a beautiful convertible. It's everything you need it to be - hot rod, luxury car, convertible, etc. Great sound system. convert the phone to bluetooth and the car is perfect. Buying an '04/'05 can save a lot of money from a new one at $130,000 plus."

"this is probably the most underapreciated car in the world. ive never been in a car with this much tourqe or get up. If you take the traction control off, at 60 mph you can floor it and make the car spin tires. ive personally taken the pants off just about every car in the world with this monster."
