Throughout recent history since I've been interested in Benzs (post 2003+-), they've been worst in class ("class" being cars") in Consumer's Reports.I am seriously considering buying a 2004 SL500.....would really apprecitae anyone's input........are they Good, Bad aqand what should I consider or if anything be aware of.
Check Consumers Reports and other non-profit raters. After '98 you need to go Jap if you want any sort of reliability. Infinity is probably tops.If you insist on a Late model SL-500, I would look at a '05 or later. Someone though that anything after a R129 was not worth owning, Thats CRAP!!!!!! Probably spoken by someone that will Never be able to have one!!!!!! If not that, Then someone that has never Driven one!!!! The 05 and later have a 7speed and other improved features!!!!
