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
2004 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMGStumpLifter, Phoenix, AZ, June 29, 2010 16:10I can't stop smiling. UNMATCHED beauty and performance. Several people have complimented me once, twice then a third time on how beautiful this car is. I agree. Undoubtedly destined to become a classic, this car is as docile as a kitten until called upon to perform. Then it becomes a well controlled beastly powerful driving machine! The transition is pure magic. Son - park your motorbike. You can't beat this car. Side by side with a similarly powered and equipped Corvette there is just no comparison - full power acceleration in the rain thru a curve is completely stable. The Vet - look out - your sideways in an instant. I have the factory warrantee and I WILL perform the scheduled maintenance. If you don't think a special automobile is a privilege to own and care for - don't buy this car - you just don't get it.Rookie
2005 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMGVisitor, Minneapolis, MN, May 18, 2010 15:072005 SL55 AMG Extremely quick, comfortable, and enjoyable to drive. If roads are bad where you live I'd stay away from Low Profile 20's on this car, as I've had to have mine repaired twice in 6 months. it's slippery fast when you really want to go and using the paddle shifters gives you even more control - head turner and worth every dime!
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.
2004 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMGwlee, Richfield, NC, December 21, 2009 11:09Great car. MB need to do more R@D on the suspention. Have had to replace the supention flud pump with 90,000 miles on car. 3800.00. And has a gear shift lock out problem that will not let you shift the car out of park, 1200.00. You wold expect a car that cost that much to live up to the MB reputation for relibinlty.Enthusiast
