A Fun Car To Own

by Bruce from Franktown, Co | October 21, 2011

I can not believe that these cars, SL 500 & SL 600, are so inexpensive to buy. Our '99 SL 600 cost over $130k when new and we bought it for under $20k. It is like a new car in every respect except for the price. The car is a dream to drive, looks outstanding, has many more safety features than newer cars and unlike many older classic cars all items in the car work. The exterior and interior of this car are both amazing - I encourage you to buy as nice an SL 500 or SL 600 as you can find, you will not regret it!

Quick car

by Retired fun seeker from Nevada City, CA | July 29, 2011

Vehicle very quick and responsive. Handles sharp winding roads with power to burn. Better fuel economy then I had expected. Low to the ground, watch out for parking curbs, bumps or road debre.

Simply Fantastic

by Second one from Sacramento, CA | May 16, 2011

This is the second one I have owned. I used the first as a long distance commuter and put 158,000 trouble free miles on it. I found another with only 40K on it and could not pass it up. Looked at Vettes, but came running back to the sl500. The interior and build quality is superior.

Junk on Wheels

by Mercedes Buff from Miami, FL | September 30, 2010

The convertable top, transmission, and electrical system breaks down all the time and is very expensive to fix.

SL - History in the Making

by SL600 from ChiCAGO | August 11, 2009

The SL is an automotive icon. It all started with the SL gullwing in the 50's. This car is rock solid. It should be because it weighs in over 4000 pounds. The V12 is incredible. You can grab a great deal on the used SL market now. V8 is nice too, but V12 is pure music when you hear it rev. V8 was $90K new, the V12 was over $120K new.
