German automaker, Mercedes-Benz, has been producing the Mercedes-Benz SL Class since 1954 and the reputation of this luxury sedan has only grown over the years. In 2012 they released the sixth generation R231. Despite this fact, however, certain problems have been known to occur, such as:
Wandering Gas Gauge: A problem that some MB owners have noticed is a faulty fuel gauge. The needle of the gauge seems to wander around the gauge as if it is unsure of where to land. This doesn't help the driver who wants to know exactly how much gas is in the tank.
Window Trim Falling Off: Some SL owners have complained that the rubber trim around the windows of their cars is gradually peeling away. This is a frustrating problem especially when the car still has relatively low miles.
Squeaky Brakes: Noisy brakes are annoying, that's for sure. Not only that but it's embarrassing pulling up to stop lights and having everyone turn and look because your car is making a horrible racket.
Transmission Problems: Some Mercedes-Benz SL Class owners have noticed that their car's gear shifters stick when they downshift as well as when the attempt to shift out of reverse. This is a problem that could be a sign of bigger transmission issues.
Sticky Brake Pedal: Some MB driver have had trouble with the brake pedal which seems to stick slightly when it is pressed about a half inch. This needs to be investigated sooner than later as it may be a sign of a more serious brake issue.
