Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** mechanic is correct in his opinion of the later model Mercedes. The only rap against the 99 model and up was the reduced horsepower but I really don't consider that to be a problem. The biggest concern on an SL is the hydraulics for the roof system. It is not uncommon for all of the hydraulics to need to be replaced as the cars get older. It would be nice if you could find an SL that has had the cylinders replaced recently. I was not able to find an option list on the SL but I did locate a couple of good articles on the differences from year to year. I've attached links below. I think any car that you are serious about buying should be inspected by a Mercedes specialist. The technician will check for things like brake wear, bushing and mount wear, oil leakage and overall vehicle condition. Reply back to me with any particular questions you have on the cars and I will be glad to help.
