Hi everyone, I've just purchased a 2002 SL500. Ive been reading some expensive horror stories. Generally how reliable are they and can they be an everyday car?
Cheers
David

Hi David,

Like any older car they can have problems, or not.
There is a lot of good info on here regarding them, especially the ABC. Good servicing and use seems to be key to keeping them on the road.

It will enjoy being used daily and benefit from the regular use. Enjoy your new SL.

Welcome that was a brave purchase. The good news is there is a massive amount of knowledge about the SL on this site.

Hello and welcome

I’d say they’re better off being used than sitting around.
