Beautiful car with many problems by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/19/2003. Trim: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL coupe, Owned 5 years.
Pros: -Modern elegant styling -Deep engine/exhaust sound -Excellent handling. -High max speed -Very stable at high speeds 100+Mph -Detailed instrument cluster guages -Rear Wheel Drive -Good resale value
Cons: -Very unreliable -High maintenance and repair cost -Degrading build quality -Devices not user friendly -Slow acceleration -Bad gas mileage -Heavy
Overall review: The 300SL overall is a decent roadster built for cruising. The car is very reliable up to 100,000 miles but beyond that it is nothing but trouble. At only 140,000 miles the car has gone through many major repairs even when garaged and driven lightly. The 4-speed automatic transmission shifting is rough and not smooth. The car is also prone to many electrical problems.
