1998 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible

Review

I love this car. It is a great ride and so much fun to drive. It is powerful enough and wants to go faster than the speed limit will allow me to drive; I feel in complete control of the car. It still drives almost as good as it did 10 years ago. The trunk holds more than you would think. I am short, so it is a great fit. Everything else I drive falls short. I will keep this car for as long as possible. If you want a sports car that is a joy every time you get in it and one that still turns heads, I can highly recommend this one.

Favorite Features

Hard roof. It's sports car power. The way it handles and the way it looks.

Suggested Improvements

Driving any sports car comes with issues. Cost to repair; less safe on the road; two seater (you can't haul people around in it). And of course, expect problems with a leaking top (as most convertibles have at least once). Not great on gas mileage. It is not comfortable driving long distances.
