Dream Car by 500SLZ on 02/02/2012. Trim: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Being a bit of a sports car nut for over 30 years, I've owned 20+ sport coupes, roadsters and muscle cars but the 500SL is truly the one that beats them all for combined quality and performance. The 1992 Mecedes Benz 500SL allows you to enjoy luxury and performance without needing two cars. Unbeleivable fit and finish that will excite any high-end auto enthusiast. Not many 20 year old cars still look so sleek and beautiful that they attract attention no matter what the car parked next to it looks like! The ride and performance is amazing, the design is stunning and I simply love this car!
Cons: Nothing yet, although I've read that a few people are dissapointed that the car doesn't have cup holders... I slide my center console compartment open and put my coffee in the box. Works perfectly. If you need a second cup holder you can buy one at Pep Boys for $5.00. The car is an 8 cylinder, so it burns gas... so did my Vette, Cadillac, Thunderbird, Camaro and Lincoln. Service is expensive at Mercedes Benz dealer. Find yourself a good independant mechanic... my Cadillac was the most expensive car to service eg. Cadillac struts were $500 each ($400 installation @independant garage. Mercedes 500SL $125 each (installation cost $300 @ independant garage.)
Overall review: If you are considering the purchase of a 1992 Mercedes 500SL that is in exceptional condition, I'm sure it will be one of the most memorable automotive experiences you've ever had. A beautiful car that was built with the ultimate in quality and engineering.
