Pros

Outstanding performance; elegant, understated styling; Mercedes-Benz craftsmanship and luxury


Model Highlights

The SL-Class benefitted from a total redesign in 2014, which included the extensive use of aluminum in the chassis. The end result is a lightweight body shell with outstanding rigidity and stiffness, with impressive performance all around.

Though it mainly has a reputation for luxury, the Mercedes-Benz SL is a seriously fast car, no matter the model. The car is available as the SL550, SL63 AMG or SL65 AMG. The SL550 comes powered by a 4.7L, twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 429 horsepower and 516 ft-lb of torque. Paired with a 7-speed automatic, the engine propels the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. The SL63 AMG, is powered by a 5.5L twin-turbocharged V8, which makes 530 hp and 590 ft-lb. Finally, the SL63 AMG delivers 621 hp and 738 ft-lb of torque from its 6.0L twin-turbo V12. Mercedes-Benz claims a 3.9-second 0?60 mph time for its top-of-the-line SL, with a top speed of 186 mph.

Of course, this wouldn't be a Mercedes-Benz without plenty of luxury and technology and the 2014 SLs do not disappoint. Mercedes-Benz has provided two versions of its convertible hard top -- a glass version and an optional "MAGIC SKY CONTROL" version. The MAGIC SKY CONTROL roof is able to change its transparency at the push of a button; going from transparent to opaque at the whim of the driver. The whole roof retracts in less than 20 seconds.

The roof of the car is really just the tip of the impressive technology in the 2014 SL. Adaptive headlights swivel to see around corners. An automatic trunk requires no hands to open or close; a simple wave of a foot under the rear bumper suffices. Washer fluid is distributed through small channels in the windshield wiper blade itself, preventing any splashing and ensuring occupants stay dry even with the top down. The sound system utilizes empty spaces in the car's chassis to enhance bass.

The emphasis on technology pays particularly large dividends when it comes to the safety of the SL. All manner of traction control, stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard. The 2014 SL also comes available with the Mercedes-Benz PRE-SAFE braking system, which will automatically apply the brakes if the car senses a collision. Two-stage airbags, including head and thorax, are also standards, along with a couple of rollover bars. Active head restraints also help prevent whiplash, and in fact Mercedes-Benz claims that the SL is the world's safest roadster.


Model News

Following a complete redesign last year, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is largely unchanged, with updates limited to new exterior color choices (Polar White, Red Metallic) and an analog dash clock now standard on the SL550.


Value Writeup

The 2014 SL-Class is a two-seat sports car with a generous helping of luxury and comfort. Starting at about $105,000, the car is truly in the luxury category. However drivers are treated to some of the best technology available. The car features a powerful engine, a very willing chassis and a clever folding hard top.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (Mercedes-Benz) is recalling certain model year 2014 SLK 250, SLK 350, SLK 55 AMG, SL 550, SL 63 AMG, and SL 65 AMG vehicles manufactured March 19, 2014, through May 5, 2014. Due to an air bag assembly error, the front passenger air bag may not deploy properly.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating front passenger air bag deployment, the front passenger seat airbag may not properly deploy, increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger seat occupant.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag, free of charge. Mercedes-Benz distributed an interim letter to owners on July 17, 2014. A second owner letter was mailed after parts became available in mid August 2014. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372. Note: Until the vehicle has been remedied, owners are advised that passengers or other items should not be placed in the passenger seat.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016 AMG GT-S, GLC300, CLA250 and GLE300d 4Matic vehicles, 2013 C250, E350 BlueTec and G63 AMG vehicles, 2008-2014 C300 vehicles, 2013-2014 C300 4Matic and ML350 4Matic vehicles, 2009 C350 vehicles, 2014 CLS550, E350 4Matic, E350 Coupe 4Matic, E350 Wagon 4Matic, GLK350 and SL550 vehicles, 2012 CLS550 4Matic vehicles, 2012-2016 E350 vehicles, 2016-2017 GL450 4Matic vehicles, 2012-2014 ML350 4Matic BlueTec vehicles, 2015 S550, S550 4Matic and C300 4Matic Sedan vehicles, 2015-2016 C300 Sedan vehicles, and 2017 SL63 AMG vehicles. Various control units on these vehicles may have been updated with incorrect software, potentially affecting the correct deployment of the air bags in the event of a crash.

Consequence
If the air bags do not deploy as intended in the event of a crash, there would be an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update software in the affected control units, free of charge. The recall began April 21, 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 SL550, 2013-2014 SL63 AMG, 2014-2016 E350, 2014 E350 Cabriolet, E350 Coupe, 2014-2015 S550, 2015 E350 Bluetec, 2015-2016 E400, 2016 E550 Coupe, and Maybach S600 vehicles manufactured August 23, 2012, to August 14, 2015. The affected vehicles use an electric power steering system that may have improperly soldered contacts inside the control unit, potentially resulting in the power steering system deactivating while driving.

Consequence
If the control unit pins lose connection, there would be a loss of electric power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. The increase in pin contact resistance can also increase the risk of a fire, even while the vehicle is parked and ignition is off.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the electric power steering control unit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during February 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
