I've had the car, a very low milage one, for about a year. It has great power and comfort. There were a couple problems, radio display, CD changer, and a plastic wheel well piece that needed repair. I guess it was just the age of the car. Overall, a great vehicle.

MOVING ON UP

With a one-time business bonus of $17 several years ago, I bought a fully restored, cherry '59 MGA roadster. Two years later, I sold it and bought a cherry '96 Jaguar XJS 6 cyl. convertible. Then sold that and bought a new Mitsubishi Eclipse V6 convertible. It was a pocket rocket, but better for a 17 yr old (I'm 74). I was pining for an '83 Fiat Spider roadster when I found the car of my dreams at a local Cadillac dealer. I traded the Mitsu w/ 5K miles for a 2000 Mercedes Benz SL500 V8 roadster with only 17K miles (!), which I've owned since February 2012. In retrospect, if I could have afforded it and had the garage space, I should have kept all of them. Let me tell you, when people speak reverently about German engineering, they are understating it. This car is sooo much more of a car than the Mitsu. It is solid! It is comfortable! It is beautiful! It is, as my wife says, "therapy" within which to drive and ride. The Jaguar was more suave in its looks, power and ride, but the Mercedes is every bit as good in a more Germanic way (and I'm Italian). I may revert to another Jaguar someday, but only after clocking many, many miles on the SL500.

I had a 03 S55, which i like very much, great performance, but give me a engine with row power over a Supercharge or Turbo engine any day! meanwhile this car will hold it value a lot longer and is much better to bet up on and a lot smaller. Both cars are a dream.

Great car for a nice day

by from San Diego, CA on July 7, 2011

Love my SL500 convertible. Wonderfully balanced ride and power. The car has all the bells and whistles - heated seats, CD changer, hard top and soft top.

the vehicle i test drove a 2000 sl500 and was a disappointment. the dealership didnt bother fixing the upholstery, so the interior wasnt good.besides a couple dings on da cosmetic the exterior was in an ok shape.performance wasnt what i expected it.the car is heavy n not enough H.P from take off,but did a lot better on the freeway. pick up speed is very good.handleling is very easy n rides nice...but i dont like the gas milage .i was payin attention to the fuel gauge n saw it move...the dealership had it priced at 3950 dollars as it...needs a new upholstery or fix the old one..minor dings but body is in very good condition..i wouldve bought it but couldnt come to an agreement.

Great Car!

what needs to be said about an SL500 that you don't know? It has been a sign of class ans style since it's inception!
