2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMGVisitor, San Francisco, CA, July 27, 2012 10:58We loved ours, until it spontaneosly set itself on fire two weeks ago-July 2012. It had not been driven in a week and was parked in a garage when an electrical fire occurred behind the passenger side and smoldered the interior. Luckily, someone happened to be in the garage and noticed it at 2AM and called the fire department. No one was injured and only our car was severely damaged. Still waiting to find out more!
2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMGedkeven, Mukilteo, WA, November 28, 2010 23:29Very strong drivetrain. Issues are with electronics and accessories, particularly Active Body Control. Shame the rest of the car isn't a great as the engine and transmission, but it still is a wonderful beast! It's a completely different car from the standard SL with the non-supercharged engine.Enthusiast
2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMGVisitor, Coram, NY, April 03, 2010 11:01Car is amazing in every way power Handling looks , however its like maintaining a high performance race car which i guess it some what is. Just disappointing thought Mercedes made a more reliable vehicle In a period of 6 months my hydrolic suspension puked all over my driveway and the car dropped to the floor then the motor mounts went and the car felt like it was going to break apart. then the constant ever raging battle with the check engine light. just be prepared to write extremely large checks on a consistent basis.
