It is what it is. Fun to drive, love the hard top convertible, great handling, expensive to maintain. I have had the following done (all under warranty): both rear lamps replaced 2x, hardtop realignment, transmission stuck in first, inside right door panelling redone, window mechanism broken. Seems like a lot for a Mercedes.

I just traded in my 1998 SLK 230 for a 2002 S500. The SLK is one of the nicest cars of all time

Review

I bought my SLK in June of '98 and plan to keep it a long time as a weekend car. Performance is fine, handling is simply outstanding. The hardtop has been trouble free so far -- one adjustment in 2000. California traffic is heavy, so the 5-sp auto is the way to go. Luggage space with the top up is cavernous -- much better than Z3, Boxster, S2000. Most important, the car stands out -- there are tons of Z3/Boxsters in Southern CA, but SLK is rarer. If buying a used one check maintenance recs -- any Mercedes will cost a fortune if it wasn't cared for.

Neat car and fun to drive except could use a larger engine. Comfortable around town but trips of several hours or more become tedious. Retractable hard top only way to go.

Awesome car to drive with the top down of course. To me it feels a lot better than the BMW's Z3s and feels a lot more solid.

Review

This car is a lot of fun to drive...in just about any weather. You get all the advantadges of a convertible with much less hassle than comparable models. Still, the car can ride a little rough now and then, and the road noise is not insignificant.
