2004 SL 500 one owner 74k miles 11,750.

Are these cars that bad, the price is one tenth of the original sale price so to speak. What is the problem with these cars anyone knows.

The answer is as simple as A, B, C........as in Active Body Control.

Itís a great suspension system when working as designed. Unfortunately itís plagued with problems. Itís not DIY friendly, almost always requires SDS to complete repairs, and itís expensive stuff.......

Proceed with caution.

At some point I want get a ten to fifteen year old SL. What are you considering expensive? Would it make more sense to just get a much newer one?
