About Mercedes-Benz SL550

As a member belonging to the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which could be dated back to the 300SL race car of 1952 and the road-going "Gullwing Coupe" sports car that followed in 1955 and was known as one of the most recognizable automotive icons of the last half century, Mercedes-Benz SL550 has been built by a German multinational automotive corporation Daimler AG since 2007 as a sports car. Originally introduced as the fifth-generation SL-Class (R230)'s facelifted model, SL550 is also the successor to the SL500 in North American market. Competing against BMW 640, BMW 650, Jaguar F-Type and Aston Martin Vantage GT, SL550 now is in its second generation.
The first-generation Mercedes-Benz SL550 was produced from 2007 to December 6, 2011 based on the Mercedes-Benz R230 platform. It was offered in only two body styles, 2-door coupe and 2-door roadster but came in only one trim level as a 75 limited-edition of 50th Anniversary. During this generation, Mercedes-Benz SL550 was powered by a 5.5 L V8 rated at 383 hp and 390 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through 5-speed or 7-speed automatic transmissions to rear wheels. Current SL550 (R231) was released in March 2012 for the 2013 model year. Now, SL550 features a turbocharged 4.7 L V8 cranking out 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque and power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz SL550 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting cutting-edge technology, a comfortable cockpit, Mercedes-Benz SL550 also is nearly peerless in terms of comfort, refinement and image. No wonder so many drivers like SL550 and if you also have one, you will be interested in these common problems on it:
First, as a sports car like Mercedes-Benz SL550, high performance and high speed should be the basic features, but after a while of driving, some drivers complained the suspension failure on it influenced their driving experience a lot. You may know the suspension failure is the culprit of unsteady and uncomfortable ride but you may not realize it could also lead to fatal accidents. Some professional SL550 drivers offered some recognizable and simple symptoms of this issue for your reference. It often starts with clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle; then the tire wear will become uneven and excessive, the vehicle will also tend to tilt to one side; finally, you will find hard to control the vehicle due to intense car vibration, unintentional steering and loose roughly operated steering wheel. You had better make sure the SL550 wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing, sway bar link and coil springs are working properly before hitting the road.
Second, the most important point in driving high-speed sports car is to make sure 100% safety, which means the braking system in your Mercedes-Benz SL550 is of vitally importance. However, in fact, some SL550 drivers complained the braking failure appears prematurely. The best advice for you is to diagnose and solve it as soon as you can. Normally, this issue often starts with noisy sounds from the brakes when being depressed; then the brakes may respond poorly and the brake pedal pulsates intensively when being applied. The brake rotors may be also covered with score marks and the rear brakes get locked up, especially on wet surfaces. The parking brake could not hold the car properly, and both Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on. All these symptoms could be attributed to the SL550 brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake caliper, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable.
