incredible power in a luxury package by NEMES1S from Lincoln on 02/15/2011. Trim: 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The power on this vehicle is unbelievable, the delivery is unlike most cars, just a sudden rush of power. I am a huge fan of the styling and the features, not to mention all this can be had on a used car for a very reasonable price.
Cons: gas mileage is awful, build quality is decent, but not for a 100k+ car. I had the car for 4 months and a shock, a few switches and ac compressor needed replaced (6200). If you are going to buy this incredible beast, absolutely must have a warranty! I am also very unimpressed with the stereo and nav, they are both of quality you should see in a car a third the price. I replaced most of the stereo with quality components, and it is great to have sat radio, ipod, and sound quality like the price of this car should have. I also felt the wheels were very boring and date the car, and replaced those as well. I would also like to see a limited slip rear diff, trac light comes on all the time.
Overall review: I love most of this car, it was my dream car in college and now it's in my garage, I am used to Lexus build quality and this car leaves a tiny bit to be desired. Knowing some of the warranty things I would go through and the fuel costs, I would still buy this car. It is near impossible to have a bad day at work when you drive that to work, it would be even nicer in a warm climate where it could be driven year round, but it is part of what I deal with for living in Nebraska
