1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible

Review

Cool car, but the top can be very troublesome (and expensive to fix). If you are considering buying, make sure top is in good working order. Fun to drive, but 4 cylinder is a little weak and doesn't sound great. Bose stereo is terrific. Ride is harsh, but to be expected. No mechanical problems in the 10k miles I've had the car (90k-100k), seems reliable. Also, be careful you don't close the top on something rigid - you will shatter the rear window glass. Ask me how I know.

Favorite Features

Two tone interior, classic styling, heated seats, Bose stereo.

Suggested Improvements

Power top reliability, 4 cylinder engine sounds rough. Manual transmission linkage feels horrible -- rubbery and vague.
