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

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.
