A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2000 Mercedes-Benz SL500

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

As vehicles age, various problems may develop with the hard and soft tops. If problems are encountered, it would be recommended to have a technician familiar with these tops perform the diagnoses.

Leaks may develop from the differential cover and/or seals on high mileage or older vehicles. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit if these leaks are addressed.
