SL 500 2005
I bought this car used from a MB dealership less than a year ago. It was a replacement for an 350SLK that got flooded and was in mint condition. This car looked great, felt solid and appeared to be babied. I checked out the MB maintenance list and it was great. The car when working performs better than expected.
Then after the first week... I needed to repair the roof drive unit. The second, the engine seals. The third, the roof hoses. Then two months ago I needed to repair the ESP. This week the high pressure hoses for the ABC blew. If you get this car beware - hoses, seals, & plastics will be breaking down and need to be replaced for big $$$$. Find a good mechanic and make sure you get the extended warranty - not that it will cover these things, but it helps with some of them!!
