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


C'mon, an automatic retractable hard- top convertible! Plus, the rear glass is REAL glass. Many don't realize that ALL SLKs are convertibles...they're not dimes a dozen! Lots of roar under the hood. You can imagine how much zang that engine hauls. Its simple elegance of being a convertible hard-top just brings it into a class of its own. The top is ingeniously tucked away in the trunk with the simple tug of a switch. Fun and great for petite females like me, I don't have a clue why guys would try to stuff themselves in small sports cars. I'd advocate it as a chicks' car...surely.

Best Features

Retractable hard-top at an easy touch of a button. This car is the FIRST in its kind... the new Lexus version looks like it was designed for 50- to 60-somethings living in Florida.

Worst Features

Create a lower level backlight positioned on the back of the rearview mirror, to give just enough illumination to the interior (to read a map, for example), instead of blinding both the passenger and driver with that single top light.
