I have a 1997 SL500 with 57000 miles on it and it was working great one day when I had the top open as soon as pressed the red botton to close the top the engine turn off and I couldn't start the car any more, I had it towed away to a mechanic when the car got there the engine started but the top never closed, mechanic said car needs a soft top panel control which cost ove $1000, I can not trust the mechanic word, is that possible?
they say its the gas tank needs to be replace.help ????
I have check engine Ligth Idiognotic I get code 410 it's air pump the old code
The car seems to be in good condition. The current owner has had the car for the last 9 years and said he hasn't had any problems with it so far.

What kind of problems are common with this car and what kind of things can I look forward to? The car has 88k miles on it.

Would you recommend me buying this car. I'm getting it for $7900.

Thanks,

Andre Landmann
This arm is located on the p-side. I put arm back in original position, but now both the ABS and BAS/ESP lights are on. How do I fix this?
WARNING THAT SAYS: BRAKE MALFUNCTION STOP CAR. ALSO ABS LIGHT IS ON ALONG WITH A VERY ANNOYING BELL AND ENGINE RUNS ROUGH. ALTHOUGH NO CODES ARE STORED.
Gear changes was very even and smooth and recently deteriorated to very jerky and uneven. Also experience a very prominent hum in the area of the back axel, when I take my foot of the accelerator the sound subsisted but becomes very evident when accelerating
Changing of gears up or down very rough and jerky. Transmission was smooth till recent. Also have a very prominent humming noise in the area of the back axle when driving between 100 - 130 km/h
I have located the camshaft sensor but not the crankshaft sensor.
