I've been looking for a SL500 1994-1999. I live in Southwest Florida. Would love to get suggestions on how to locate a good car at a good price. I've been online with autotrader, etc. and have not found one as yet. I would like to stay under $30,000 and miles under 50,000. Can anyone help???? Thanks.

Keep looking. It took me almost 2 years to find the right one. Although i was looking for only silver between 1996 and 1998.

It may not take you as long if your not looking for a particular color.

I stuck to autotrader, ebay, and cars.com. You may want to find and auto broker. They are good as well.

I spent 3 months in melbourne,fl. Didn't find any i liked within 200 miles.

Josephine, Take your time looking. $30,000 w 50K miles or less is in a realistic price range. I would however look for a 1996 or newer. The 1993-1995 had problems with their wiring harnesses and especially in hot, humid climates and can cost between $2000-$3000 to replace. This was corrected in 1996. Also there were some cosmedic changes beginning in 1996. I bought my 1997 SL500 in August 2004 for $27,000 with 62K miles, Mercedes Starmark Certified with 1 year warranty at a large MBZ dealership in San Rafal, CA (San Francsco suburb). It did take me about 4 months to find the right car. Take your time and good luck
