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

Review

I bought my SLK in 2006 with 110,000 miles on it. I've owned six Benzes, all used when I bought them. The SLK is the most expensive to maintain and worth every penny. One reason I bought this car is the manual transmission, something SLs haven't had in the US since 1972. It's way too easy to get a speeding ticket with this car. I actually prefer a soft top with seasonal hard top (as on my 190 SL and 230 SL) The retracting top is OK too but needs maintenance.

Favorite Features

Looks great from all angles. The metallic blue is outstanding. Good balance between go-power and mileage (mine averages 27). Great stereo and good AC.

Suggested Improvements

Should have a full size spare tire, or at least one you don't have to inflate before installing.
