"This car is the perfect combination of performance and comfort with a hard top convertible. No other vehicle in it's league offers all three in the same package; and did I mention you can have a full body massage while you are driving! This car looks amazing w/the top up or down and the panaroma room makes it even sexier. Best high performance/luxury/convertible/sportscar ever made!"
"Bought my 2003 used in 2007 with only 7000 miles on the odometer for 1/2 the list price, and have driven it only sparingly since. Had multiple trips to the dealer for, of all things, the tire pressure monitor! They never did get that fixed, and now that the warranty is expired I find the little monitors are @ $300 each, and all four should be replaced. Also the strut that is supposed to hold the trunk lid upright now needs to be replaced. Having said that, the car overall is a pleasure to drive, and as good looking as they come!"
"This car impresses everyone that knows me. But the sound system and navigation are better in my 2008 Toyota Avalon, the seats are not very comfortable, and the outside mirrors should fold-in when you lock up like in the S550. I was drying the car off with a towel one day and it caught the plastic vent spears on the cowl and one snapped off. All too easily."
"Beautiful execution in style. Will be a timeless model, just like its W129 predecessor. Smaller inside than predecessor. 5L V8 is a tad underpowered. 1-2year value drops like a stone. For 2, is more useful than a 911."
"The only late model used car I ever bought that jumped 10k in value 30 days after my purchase - values from kbb.com. The key - rarity, low miles and a CPO which is fully transferable to the next owner - a must have for these high end hand assembled MBs. Do I take the 10k or keep the car? Never had a ride like it - I'll keep it for now and drive it sparingly."
"Got an '07 SL 550 on 4/30/10. Recent cars have been an '09 Mustang GT, and an '05 Corvette. The Mercedes is the best looking and most refined car that I have ever driven. It handles better than the Corvette. Not the brute power of the Vette, but much more refined, and the quality of materials, engineering, and workmanship is top notch. Love the rain sensing wipers, and the air suspension. It even has a spare tire (I hated that the Vette had none)."
"I put new Sumitomo's on it recently and it runs like a spotted ape (this is good). Better hold on when you hit the accelerator, the AMG package is awesome. It is definitely a head turner and lots of fun to drive...loves the curves and hills, loves the long straight-aways...just loves to run, mostly fast. I will probably keep it forever."
"A very well made, reliable vehicle with outstanding performance. Mechanically it's a dream, fun to drive. The GPS interface is poor, my American car has a better interface and screen, but that's the only negative I've found in two years and 14,000 miles."
