Mercedes-Benz is one of the premier automobile manufacturers in the world and it is also the world's oldest.
The company has carefully cultivated an image of superior engineering, quality, and service. The Mercedes-Benz automobiles are often the vehicle of choice for the rich
and famous. For a period of time the cars were manufactured with a lower quality to maintain competitive pricing but Mercedes-Benz
has now raised its quality standards to regain previous automobile ratings.
"The 2004 Mercedes- Benz SL500 has more standard equipment than just about any other two-seater in the world today. The SL500's 5.0-liter V8 engine develops 302 horsepower. 2004 models come with a completely new electronically controlled, magnesium-housing 7G-Tronic 7-speed automatic transmission, the world's first, with closer ratios for quicker acceleration, instantaneous downshifting and higher fuel economy."
Are you having spark plug problems? When you change your spark plugs, you might consider upgrading to a premium long-life platinum or iridium plug. These plugs cost a little more initially, but they can actually save you money in the long run because they do not have to be replaced as often. Many of these plugs can go 100,000 miles or more. Such plugs would also be a good choice for any vehicle where access to the spark plugs is a problem.
